It is estimated that Australians throw away 1 billion waxed coffee cups every year. The majority of these cups end up in landfill and the waterproof waxing inhibits nature from breaking them down.
Those of us that love maths wouldnt take too long to determine that on average, every adult in Australia is likely to have at least one take away drink each and every week, which is driving the enormous landfill problem.
KeepCups were designed to avoid the use of throw away coffee cups and at UC Invest we support this mission. We have designed our own branded KeepCups.
We are increasingly seeing coffee outlets support this approach by offering discounts when the reusable cups are brought instore.
UC Invest branded KeepCups are still available for free at our office if you are passing by.
