Before you head out of the front door to pick up your favourite hot drink, don’t forget your JOCO Cup, a glass reusable coffee cup that’s durable and lightweight.
JOCO Cups are made from high quality, non-porous, borosilicate glass. They are lightweight and resistant to extreme changes in temperature, and are microwave and dishwasher safe.
JOCO Cups come in barista-friendly sizes – 8oz, 12oz and 16 oz glasses. Each cup has a thermal silicone sleeve to keep your coffee or tea at the optimal temperature and your hands cool, and a splash safe silicone lid. The silicone sleeve and lid comes in a variety of colour ways and limited edition artist’s collection featuring eye-catching designs.
Annually, over 500 billion disposable paper, Styrofoam and single-use plastic cups are used worldwide and this figure is rapidly rising each year. These cups deplete natural resources, increase C02 emissions and most are sent straight to landfill where they add to the global waste crises.
There are now a number of reusable coffee cups on the market made from a range of materials including bamboo and silicon. What makes the JOCO Cup a particularly good choice is that since it’s made from glass, it doesn’t affect the taste of drinks as do some cups made from other materials. It’s also free of all harmful chemical nasties including BPA, lead and cadmium.
The Australian-based brand, JOCO, say: “The JOCO community are regular crew who believe its time to give a little back. We aspire to help reduce preventable waste with fine looking and forward-thinking product that makes the takeaway experience better. There’s a whole host of benefits for you and the natural environment when using JOCO reusable cups.”
