Reuse…..Reuse…..Reuse….. Recycle

 

What is CUPPACOFFEECUP?

CUPPACOFFEECUP is a New Zealand-made reusable takeaway coffee cup. Instead of disposing of a cup every time you have a takeaway coffee, re-use your CUPPACOFFEECUP. The idea behind CUPPACOFFEECUP was to create a reusable cup that is lightweight, has striking full colour imagery and looks and feels much like a disposable cup.

 

Why use CUPPACOFFEECUP?

It is estimated that 100-200 million disposable cups are used each year in New Zealand.  That number is even higher in Australia – with approximately 800 million disposable cups being used each year.  Many disposable cups cannot be recycled because they are lined with plastic.  There is also a significant environmental cost in manufacturing disposable cups.  Even compostable disposable cups cannot be composted without the correct facilities.
