Did you know that 20% of all office waste is disposable cups? Not discarded print-outs. Not pencil shavings. Not post-it note doodles. No. A full fifth of all office waste comes from throwaway cups from the coffee shop down the road. Great stat, but so what?
Well all of this waste wouldn’t matter so much if disposable cups were recycled afterwards, but the plastic-coated inner lining actually rules most of them out of the process. So for all the convenience of a quick cup of coffee on the go, we throw away something that can take fifty years or more to break down in a landfill! Not so disposable after all then.
Step forward the Keep Cup – aptly named because that’s exactly what you do with it. The Keep cup comes in standard takeaway sizes, which means they’ll fit underneath most commercial espresso machines’ group heads. So the next time you call into Costarnerobucks for your skinny hazelnut macchiato, ask for your coffee to be served straight into this smart-looking vessel. You can save them the cost of a cup and save the planet at the same time!
Not only does the Keep Cup look the bee’s knees, but it has a bundle of practical features as well. A soft tactile silicon band runs around the body of the Keep Cup to protect your hand from the heat. The Keep Cup also has a sealable lid with a sipper hole for quaffing your beverage. Take that, paper cups!
