Why should you use a Reusable Coffee Cup?

New Zealand is a pretty small country and it is estimated that between 100-200 million disposable coffee cups are used each year, Australia the figure soars to about 800 million a year.  Each of these cups have to be manufacturered so there is the environmental impact of just making these cups to consider, also many of the disposable cups on the market cannot be recycled as they are lined with a plastic, so doesn't it make sense to just reuse your coffee cup?

So you can promote sustainability by using a reusable cups that can used time and time again.  The cups from CUPPACOFFEECUP are made from food-grade polypropylene, this is a plastic which can be recycled at the end of its life it can even be made into new consumer goods.  Of course, there is some environmental impact in producing a cup from CUPPACOFFEECUP, reusing your CUPPACOFFEECUP for a year or two will definitely help the planet!

At the end of its life, both the cup and lid can be recycled.

About Aroha

The whakataukī “Aroha atu, Aroha mai” is a favourite according to Chris as it is simplistic and yet powerful.  Love given, love received.  The designs are taniko patterns created by Chris taken from her digital creations and represent the dynamics of Aroha te aro o te ha.  The intention we give to any task and each other is important, let it be given with ease and joy and received with such.  Taniko patterns are found on the cloaks of our ancestors.  They tell narratives with each line and shape deliberately placed to represent the wearer.
