The term Australian Made is often brought up and attached to products. But what does it mean, and why should you care?
What is the Australian Made certification?
As outlined by Australian Made, the famous Australian Made, Australian Grown (AMAG) logo is the true mark of Aussie authenticity.
It's Australia's most trusted, recognized, and widely used country of origin symbol. It is underpinned by a third-party accreditation system, which ensures products that carry the logo are certified as 'genuinely Australian.'
We work off a social enterprise methodology.
- We choose to design, operate & manufacture locally in Australia.
- We know the families and people who make your products.
- Through local jobs, we directly support & employ women from refugee backgrounds.
- All packaging is made in Australia of 100% recycled cardboard.
- All parts are replaceable & recyclable at the end of life.
By choosing our product, you substantially contribute to eradicating single-use products & supporting Australian small businesses and jobs.
Why do we choose to manufacture with Tritan?
Manufacturing with Tritan means we can produce locally in Australia, which we cannot do with glass.
Tritan is BPA Free and won't leach in any way, making it the healthy, clean & safe choice. Tritan has also been reviewed independently & approved by the European Union FSA, US FDA, Health Canada, Japan's HOSPA & Australia's standards.
The material we use to make our eco cup and water bottle allow us to manufacture in Australia and ensures our products are healthy, clean, and safe for you to use. With the move towards more people striving towards zero waste living by using reusable keep cup products and water bottles, it is great to know where your product is made to ensure it is sustainable and made ethically.
How can you show your support?
We are proudly a community-based company that supports the local economy. Every cup sold makes a difference. Whether you buy one cup for your morning coffee run or get your company involved in a large scale swap cup program, it all helps.
