Eco Cup Reusable Coffee Cups: Morning Coffee Goes Green
Browsing around the office supply chain store a couple of weeks ago, I rounded a corner and found, of all things, this handsome little display. I think to myself, over and over, just how many disposable coffee cups and plastic lids and cardboard sleeves are we collectively burning through every single day, year after year. As the coffee craze seems to have permanently taken hold over American consumers, with coffee chains of every block in most cities and towns, the reality is that waste materials from our daily habit add up to something significant, quickly. So to remedy that — the Eco Cup is here!
How the Eco Cup Reusable Coffee Cup Works
Offered in two different and equally cool versions, the Eco Cup uses simple “technology” to maintain your beverage temperature while completely eliminating waste materials, even the recyclable ones, commonly associated with buying your morning coffee from the coffee bar.
Both versions are 3.5″ wide at the mouth, and 6″ tall, nearly exactly the same as a small coffee cup, and each is white in color. Both of the cups are made of porcelain, and each features the same silicone lid that prevents spills, maintains beverage temperature and can withstand microwave and dishwasher heat up to 446 degrees Fahrenheit.
The difference? The first version holds ten ounces of liquid, and features a dual-layer interior: the inside “cup” holds the coffee, while the outside shell stays cool to the touch due to a hollow cavity between the two.
The second version, larger in volume (16 fluid ounces), has just a single wall of porcelain, but in order to withstand potentially hot temperatures from coffee, also comes with a silicone “sleeve” much like the recyclable cardboard sleeve you see at the coffee bar.
