BYO Reusable Coffee Cups
When you order your next takeaway coffee, take a look around at the number of disposable cups that are flying out the door as we all feed our caffeine addiction.
The War On Waste, which aired on the ABC highlighted that cities are struggling to keep up with the amount of waste produced daily. Reusable takeaway coffee cups are a great solution to this growing waste problem. By making an effort to bring your teacup or coffee cup to your café, you are contributing to this ever-increasing movement of sustainable coffee and tea consumption.
Why should I buy a reusable coffee cup?
Having a reusable product will minimise the amount of waste you produce by reducing the number of disposable cups that you previously used in its place.
It is well known that the large number of disposable coffee cups that we use daily are not recyclable due to their plastic lining and are ending up in the landfill.
As per Sustainability Victoria, Australians throw out 2.7 million single-use or disposable coffee cups every single day. This adds up to 1 billion coffee cups thrown out every year.
Whether you are a three coffee a day drinker or just a social coffee consumer, your reusable takeaway coffee cups can become a guilt-free companion that follows you around, ready to jump in place of the throwaway non-recyclable coffee cup. With products such as Uppercup, Keep Cup, Frank Green and Joco on the market, you can follow the reusable coffee cup movement in style. The sleek design of Uppercup mimics a non-reusable coffee cup and is ethically and sustainably produced in Australia fo your perfect cup of coffee!

War On Waste - The Movement Towards Reusables
The War on Waste movement is a national movement to influence how we all act as consumers and global citizens.
It revolves around three fundamental lifestyle principles:
- Where-ever possible, minimise our waste product.
- Shop consciously by looking into the supply chain process of the company.
- Change our daily habits to become more sustainable in a broader sense.
