I am sure you’ve heard the term ‘zero waste’ or ‘low impact’ living by now. As a result, you’ve most likely been curious as to how you can begin your journey to lessening your waste. There are lots of ways to begin, such as purchasing a Reusaboo reusable coffee cup.
Disposable coffee cups are a massive issue. A shocking statistic for you – Did you know that in the UK we now go through 7 million disposable coffee cups a day?
Although you may be thinking “but my cup is made from paper” and perhaps you refuse the plastic lid, but this is not the solution. Disposable coffee cups are very hard to recycle due to the plastic within them. According to Reusaboo, it is reported that just 1 in 400 disposable coffee cups are able to be recycled.
Reusable coffee cups come in many forms. Glass, stainless steel and bamboo, like Reusaboo!
Reusaboo cups are made from naturally antibacterial and biodegradable bamboo fibre. Stating on their website that this used because it’s “fast growing, renewable, absorbs large amounts of CO2 and produces more oxygen than plants.“
Along with being made from a fantastic material, I absolutely adore the design of the Reusaboo cup. This really is a statement piece – graphics of the environment basically screaming “I’m trying to save the planet over here!“
A massive benefit for me is the fact that this cup doesn’t leak. I am use to having coffee cups that leak, it’s always happened in the past, so I needed to put this one to the test. I made myself a coffee and packed my cup in my tote bag whilst walking around – it didn’t leak! With a screw lid and stopper, this coffee cup really does work for when you’re on the go.
A few other features of this cup is the fact that it’s dishwasher safe and has a heat resistant sleeve. Another benefit is that as the lid is bamboo, there is no weird silicone taste disturbing the flavours of my drink which is fantastic! Who knew a little coffee cup could have so many perks?
I really do love this beautiful cup, I’ve even been using it at home whilst working for my hot drinks. As this cup is of a decent size (450ml capacity) I’ve even been loading it up with ice to make a gorgeous iced coffee – Yum!
