BYO reusable coffee cup, reusable water bottle or reusable smoothie cup when on the go to save on plastic waste

One of the easiest ways to reduce your use of plastic is to avoid single-use plastic, and BYO when out and about instead. So what are the biggest culprits?

Disposable Coffee Cups; one billion of them annually in Australia alone. They are plastic lined so can't be recycled in normal recycling streams. In fact, if you throw that coffee cup in the recycling bin, it could contaminate the entire load, seeing it all end up in landfill. Plus, it usually comes with a plastic lid that is made of polystyrene and not generally recyclable. The same applies to disposable smoothie cups.

Disposable Water Bottles; again, one billion of these babies gets disposed of in Australia every year. But plastic can be recycled, I hear you say... yes, in theory. But in Australia  only12% of our plastic is currently recycled, so most of these bottles will end up in landfill (or floating in the ocean), taking centuries to break down into microplastics and contaminating the soil (or water) long after your kids' kids' kid's kids' kids' kids' kids' kids' kids' kids' kids' kids' kids' kids' kids' kids have left the Earth! Gah!

Our most popular reusable coffee cups are made from 50% wheat fibre and microwave safe! Available in Regular (350ml) or Large (450ml). Our reusable smoothie cups and reusable water bottles are double wall stainless steel with secure silicone sealed lids.

Due to the plastic lining in takeaway cups, it is very challenging for waste management streams to recycle them. In order to hold a hot drink for a period of time, the plastic is too thick to be sent to paper recycling streams. Current kerbside and public waste management cannot effectively separate the two materials so the cups get sent to landfill. Customers dispose of their ‘paper cup’ in their paper recycling with best intentions but this in fact contaminates the collection which can result in the whole bin getting sent to landfill.

  • An estimated 1 billion coffee cups are used in Australia every year – most of these are not recycled
  • This is enough to circumnavigate the world two and a half-times
  • Most people don't realise that coffee cups can't be recycled
  • 50,000 cups are used in Australia every half hour.
