You may have already seen this fantastic sustainable, resuable coffee cup, but I was so thrilled to find out that the Keep Cup is Australian-designed and manufactured!
Abagail and Jamie Forsyth are the talented duo behind this superb product design. As owners of a chain of coffee and catering outlets in Melbourne, they witnessed first-hand the incredible amount of waste that is generated from disposable takeaway coffee cups. According to the team, Australians use approximately 500 million disposable cups a year. We discard 1.36 million disposable cups a day into landfill - that's 57,000 disposable cups an hour or 951 disposable cups a minute. Crazy!
Destined to be an Australian design classic, the Keep Cup is both functional and cool. The three different cup sizes fit under cafe Espresso spouts and there are a range of colour-matching plugs and bands (that you can personalise) to choose from. All of the materials used in the KeepCup are BPA-free. For more info on the product, see the FAQ's.
You can find Keep Cup at the Keep Cup Online Store as well as these Australian authorised resellers. Why not send the Keep Cup product info to your employer to purchase cups for your whole team at work (like the National Australia Bank). And what a great Secret Santa gift.
Thanks Sara for the reminder to write about such a great Aussie-designed product.
