Helpful Information About CUPPACOFFEECUPs

 

New Zealand Made

CUPPACOFFEECUP is designed, made and packaged in New Zealand.

 

What are CUPPACOFFEECUPs made of?

CUPPACOFFEECUPs are made from food-grade polypropylene and the lids are made from Elastomer. Both are BPA free.

 

Are CUPPACOFFEECUPs recyclable?

The fantastic thing about a CUPPACOFFEECUP is that both the cup and lid are fully recyclable at the end of their life.  Read below for further information on how.

Recycling can be a mind field of different information as dependent on where you live in New Zealand will depend on recycling capabilities as this is reliant on each individual Council.  Plastics are also graded with plastic resin identification codes numbered 1 through to 7 and this also causes confusion.  

Plastics numbered 1, 2 and 5 are plastics that are easier to recycle.  We are happy to say that our cup is numbered 5 and therefore should be able to be recycled in your curbside rubbish bin.  However, our lids are a soft plastic which means it is numbered 4 and is possible to recycle.  Number 4 is generally a soft plastic which can be recycled by a specialist recycler.  However, if your local council does not provide recycling capabilities for number 4 plastics, we are pleased to say you can send your lid to us at Cuppacoffeecup and we will ensure these are returned to the manufacturer who will grind these down and make them into something new.  Happy days.

Lids return address is 28 Sylvia Road, St Heliers, Auckland 1071

Why choose CUPPACOFFEECUP

CUPPACOFFEECUP was designed with the look and feel of a disposable cup in mind, to make the transition to reusable easier. The warmth of the coffee is intended to be felt to enhance the coffee drinking experience. This means CUPPACOFFEECUP is perfect for espresso coffee and is not intended for hot beverages over 80 degrees Celsius as the CUPPACOFFEECUP may be hot to hold. A standard milk coffee is 60-70 degrees Celsius.  Hotter drinks will not impact the integrity of the cup.

 

Care of your CUPPACOFFEECUP

Your CUPPACOFFEECUP is top-drawer dishwasher safe, however, regular dishwasher use can impact on the longevity of your design. We recommend hand washing as it is less abrasive which means the imagery on your CUPPACOFFEECUP will stay looking amazing for longer.

CUPPACOFFEECUP can be placed in the freezer and is microwave safe with the lid off.
