This reusable hot drinks cup can help with your take-away drinks routine without a hint of plastic. Made from natural rice husk, the cup is extremely durable and can be used many times, yet at the end of a long life can be completely composted. This version has a design of a gecko and dragonfly in grey and taupe and has a black recyclable silicone lid and heat sleeve.
A rice husk cup is 100% biodegradable, unlike many bamboo cups which contain plastic in the form of melamine. It is extremely durable and will last for ages. When ready to dispose of, soak the cup overnight in water, then crush and bury it in soil or compost and it will start to degrade within 6 months. The silicone sleeve and lid are non-toxic and can be recycled.
Since the degrading process involves a lengthy soak, it is important to wash the cup without leaving it in water for a prolonged period.
The cup comes in a sturdy cardboard gift box with lots of detailed information on its sustainability and disposal.
