CUPPACOFFEECUP is a New Zealand-made reusable takeaway coffee cup. Instead of disposing of a cup every time you have a takeaway coffee, re-use your CCC. The idea behind CCC was to create a reusable cup that is lightweight, has striking full colour imagery and looks and feels much like a disposable cup.
It is estimated that 100-200 million disposable cups are used each year in New Zealand. That number is even higher in Australia – with approximately 800 million disposable cups being used each year. Many disposable cups cannot be recycled because they are lined with plastic. There is also a significant environmental cost in manufacturing disposable cups. Even compostable disposable cups cannot be composted without the correct facilities. It is often the case that disposable cups end up in landfill.
Reusable cups that are used time and time again promote sustainability. CCC is made from food-grade polypropylene – a plastic that can be easily recycled at the end of its life and made into new consumer goods. While, of course, there is some environmental impact in producing a CCC, reusing your CCC for a year or two will definitely help the planet!
At the end of its life, both the cup and lid can be recycled.
