No Excuse for Single-Use -The Cup Stops Here!

Reusable Promotional Coffee Cups

2017 marked the 30-year anniversary of the arrival of the modern disposable cup.

It’s reckoned that in those three decades of avid coffee drinking more than a staggering two trillion of them have ended up in a landfill. It’s also reckoned that the average lifespan of a single-use cup is about ten minutes.

Owing to the plastic content (in the liner to make the cup water/coffee proof) less than 1% of the cups get recycled, partly because there are very few recycling plants that can actually handle cups with a plastic liner.

The alternative to this environmental headache – promotional travel mugs.

Here’s a selection of what’s available…


  • E-Coffee Cup – Made with fibre from the world’s fastest-growing, most sustainable crop – bamboo. It’s BPA and phthalate free and naturally sterile, with no plastic aftertaste. Cups have a re-sealable, non-drip lid. The whole product is dishwasher safe but not suitable for microwaves. 


  • Americano Cortado – is a brand new UK-made tumbler which has a glass-like appearance with exceptional clarity.


  • Brite-Americano Mug – For an amazing impact the Brite-Americano offers a full-colour wrap print. Complete the look with a screw-fix lid in a choice of twelve colours. 350ml capacity. BPA free.


  • PLA Coffee Cup 350ml – This cup is a sustainable 350ml tumbler with silicone grip and lid. Manufactured from 100% biodegradable plant material (PLA). Cups are BPA free and dishwasher proof.
