By investing in a reusable ecoffee cup you could significantly reduce the single use waste you are responsible for.
single use coffee cups
Globally, every year, 500 billion single-use coffee cups are thrown away! In South Africa apparently, only about 11% of people actually recycle, so most of the single-use coffee cups will end up in a landfill. And for the cups that do get added to the recycling, only a handful will actually get recycled because there are only a few specialised recycling facilities that can process used coffee cups.
reusable ecoffee cups
Ecoffee cups are made with bamboo fibre and a matte food-grade silicone lid and sleeve. They are dishwasher safe and come in a variety of patterns, colours and sizes.
I have two Ecoffee cups, a black one and this 400ml limited edition Porthcurno, ocean-inspired design. Ecoffee donates 10% of every sale of the Porthcurno design, to Surfers Against Sewage, a marine conservation charity working with communities to protect oceans, waves, beaches and marine life.
