Ecoffee Cup are one of the leading brands in reusable coffee cups, after realising in 2012 that reusable cups weren’t actually reusable Ecoffee Cup set about making a change for the better. Since then Ecoffee Cup have grown and grown to now offer a brand new range that are even more sustainable.
#1 They’re Better For The Planet
Ecoffee Cup reusable cups are a better option than using disposable cups as by their nature they create much less waste. By bringing your own coffee cup to a café the demand for single-use cups is much less meaning the more people that own reusable cups (and use them regularly) the less disposable cups are manufactured. It’s also important to think about the material used to create reusable cups, your reusable cup should be easy to clean and made from a more sustainable source than plastic. Are Ecoffee Cup reusable cups going to change the face of climate change? Probably not but they’re a small and simple change than all works towards creating a much happier planet.
#2 They’re Made Of Plant-Based Material
The new Ecoffee Cup range for 2022 have a new and improved material, moving on from the well-known bamboo style, this new range is made from PLA, a biodegradable bioplastic. PLA is made from fermented corn starch, cassava, maize, sugarcane or sugar beet pulp; the sugar in these becomes lactic acid which in turn becomes polylactic acid… which all sounds very complicated but really it means these new coffee cups are made in a much for sustainable way. This plant-based material is vegan-friendly and is considerably better for the environment. PLA production uses 65% less energy consumption than conventional materials and contains no toxins! Stronger than classic bamboo, PLA is also certified as suitable for drinking and eating from with not a trace of melamine in sight.
#3 They’re Compostable
PLA is a commercially compostable material, this means when it reaches its end of life it can be composted via a process whereby the material is safely broken down and decomposed. The Ecoffee Cup PLA cups are all commercially compostable and biodegradeable; many places now offer facilities that can compost Ecoffee Cup cups in a controlled way. As you can imagine composting is much better for the environment, composting your old PLA cups from Ecoffee Cup will allow them to break down into a non-toxic material that can be converted into a rich soil supplement!
