What are Ecoffee Cups?
Ecoffee Cups are a new natural reusable alternative to single-use plastic takeaway cups.
What are Ecoffee Cups made from?
The Ecoffee Cup is made from 75% Bamboo fibre and corn starch as well as 25% Melamine-Formaldehyde resin. The lid and sleeve are made with matte, food-grade silicone which is latex-free and designed especially for hot liquids.
What is Melamine-Formaldehyde resin?
Melamine is an organic base binding compound which is combined with bamboo fibre in the manufacturing process.
The Melamine-Formaldehyde resin allows the cups to be suitable for the high temperatures of hot liquids and also to be dishwasher-safe.
Why choose bamboo?
Bamboo is the worlds fastest growing plant grow up to a metre a week.
Bamboo helps reduce CO2 and can generate up to 35% more oxygen than equivalent stands of trees.
The Ecoffee cup bamboo is sourced from one of the world’s oldest, sustainably managed forests in Anji County, China.
A great benefit of using bamboo is no need for pesticides or fertilisers when growing bamboo.
This allows a natural eco-system of insects, birds and small animals to exist in harmony.
Are Ecoffee Cups really "Environmentally Friendly"?
As takeaway drink consumption grows, so does the problem of waste.
The mission is to provide beautiful, practical and affordable products that make a significant contribution towards the reduction of single-use items.
Imagine the massive difference we could make if everyone made this simple change.
If 2 million people chose to re-use just once a week, we would stop 104,000,000 single-use cups going to landfill each year.
Since 2014, Ecoffee customers across the globe have prevented more than 10 million single-use cups from entering the waste stream and subsequent landfill.
Are Ecoffee Cups biodegradable?
Recent changes to EU law mean that Ecoffee Cups are no longer able to claim our product is biodegradable.
In order to meet these rules, a product must biodegrade 90% within 6 months.
For all consumer durable products, this is simply not achievable.
Why should I choose Ecoffee Cup?
Ecoffee Cup is light, bright and beautiful to drink from, with no plastic after-taste.
We think these cups packs just a little bit more style than the others, making the Ecoffee Cup an ideal choice or for your office, shop, cafe or as a thoughtful gift for your family and friends.
