This is exactly what I needed on my recent holiday. Every time there was an opportunity for tea the green girl without and within was really wishing I could hand over some reusable cup to be filled with my beverage of choice instead of sheepishly accepting a disposable paper cup. Of course, many would argue that to be truly green you should sit down and sip your tea or coffee from a ceramic cup but alas, this isn't always an option for all of us as we dart about day to day.
The KeepCup has been designed to meet the needs of you and your barista, from the silicone band that allows you to permanently label your coffee preferences to the nifty plug and handle-less design that makes sipping on the go less dangerous and more do-able. It has all the advantageous of your previously loved paper cup but without the high landfill quota!
The design certainly makes it ideal for travelling. I can't help but imagine how cool it would have been if everyone on the last flight I took had each whipped out one of these KeepCups to receive their beverages (I know, ideally we shouldn't be flying, reusable cup in tow or not but 'baby steps' huh?)
According to the online store, Biome Australia all of the 'materials used in the KeepCup are BPA free' and made from the following:
- Cup and lid - #5 polypropylene
- Plug - polyethylene polymer (TPU)
- Thermal band - silicone
The KeepCup is available in three sizes and in various colours. Resellers and corporates can also customise the KeepCup with their preferred colour choices. You can purchase the cups through KeepCup (small sizes start at $10.20, medium $12.20 and large $14.20).
