Reusable Travel Cup made from Bamboo Fiber

Ecoffee Cup

Each year over 300 billion single-use cups are made worldwide, about 1.5 billion in Canada, and less than 2% will ever be recycled. Despite appearances, almost all big businesses’ disposable coffee cups are lined in plastic (yes, that includes those innocent-looking Tim Horton’s cups). Choose to reuse. Each time you choose to re-use, even just once a week, you will be helping in the fight against single-use waste. Imagine the massive difference we could make if everyone did the same. If 2 million people chose to re-use just once a week, we would stop 104,000,000 single-use cups going to landfill each year.

These beautiful cups are made from a composite of natural, organic bamboo fiber, corn starch and a plant-based resin. The sleeve and lid are made from silicone made from sand and no petroleum products. They are not only pretty, they are naturally antibacterial and have no weird plastic-taste. Size: 14 oz
