Coffee lovers need the KeepCup!

June 22, 2009

Do you have a coffee or two every day? Enjoy your caffeine hit and help save the environment thanks to the world’s first reusable coffee cup!

This has got to be one of the best (and simplest!) ideas we have seen in a long time. KeepCup is the world’s first barista standard reusable coffee cup. That means you can take it to any coffee vendor and have them fill it up for you which saves the earth from another discarded paper cup and the trees too!

It is estimated that 500 million disposable cups are used in Australia annually so imagine what the global numbers must be! Most coffee cups you get from cafes are not recyclable as they have a polyethylene coating. In arid regions like Australia, breakdown in landfill can take up to 50 years.

The KeepCup fits under the group heads of coffee machines (unlike a thermos or mug), and has the same internal volume as takeaway cups to ensure consistent proportioning of espresso and milk. It comes in three standard sizes with a fully sealable lid. It is washable, microwavable, stackable, and fits in all cup holders. The one lid also fits on all three sizes of KeepCups.

Prices start at $7.80, for more info visit www.keepcup.com.au
