What is it?
A reusable coffee cup
Mums, dads, grandmas, grandpas, kids, your cousin Terry, his mate Ralph..ie anyone who likes a hot drink and cares about the environment.
We have the Keepcups ‘Brew’ in medium- glass ones with the cork and espresso and black colour lids (priced above). I love these the best as drinking out of glass is much more enjoyable than plastic. They are a little more expensive but worth it in my eyes and stylish too.
When Jamie and Abigail Forsyth started a café business in Melbourne in 1998, disposable cups were entering the public landscape; the signifier of a busy professional life and a vibrant independent coffee scene.
As the business grew, so did their concerns about the volume of packaging being consumed, particularly disposable cups; lined with polyethylene, they were non-recyclable.
In 2007, following unsuccessful trials of existing reusable cups, they decided to design and make their own – a barista standard reusable cup for people to enjoy better coffee on the go.
They took a huge gamble that usability, sustainable manufacturing practice and design aesthetics could drive behaviour change and make a difference to how people think about convenience culture.
My planet packaging rating. 5/5 stars
This is one of the easiest zero waste switches you can make in your life. I’ve been using my reusable cup for almost 6 years now.
If you still need convincing, watch this War on Waste video.
Gift one to yourself today! You wont regret it, I promise.
If the cat breaks mine again, I will be getting one from local artist Nidito.
