Every day across Australia thousands of paper and plastic cups are thrown away, adding to the waste that must be disposed of in some way. With the exception of the USA, Australia produces more waste per person each year than any other country.
Rubbish does not disappear instantly just because we no longer see it, but it is a time consuming process to dispose of it. However the design crew DCI has found a way to avoid adding to this problem by creating eco friendly porcelain tea and coffee cups for the workplace and home.
Both the tea and coffee cups have a silicone lid and sleeve to allow you to hold your hot cup of tea or coffee without burning your hand.
The cup is microwave and dishwasher safe and the silicone lid can withstand temperatures of up to 230 degrees celsius.
Once you start using these great porcelain, easy to hold cups you’ll never have to resort to paper cups ever again. Not only will you help minimise waste but getting a hot drink will be easier than ever.
All you need to do is go to your local barista and ask him/her to refill your porcelain cup. Then at the end of the day you can just leave it at work ready for the next day.
In addition these cups look great sitting on any work desk and are a fantastic gift idea for any coffee or tea lover.
You can also save money by using your porcelain cup to make your own hot drink at work.
To help protect the environment while enjoying a hot drink go to Eco Friendly Tea and Coffee Cups designed by DCI.
