I was recently given the opportunity to review green coffee cups from Repurpose Compostables.
Founded in 2009 by a group of young environmental entrepeneurs, looking for quality solutions to the problem of single use petroleum-based plastic products. After searching and finding few quality and cost competitive compostable solutions, they decided to manufacture their own. Repurpose was born with its mission to replace all single use disposable plastics with high quality, innovative, plant-based alternatives. Repurpose makes products from plants, not petroleum, using Ingeo™ resin and meet ASTM 6400 compostability standards.
Repurpose products are now available to consumers and to businesses allowing everyone the opportunity to lessen their dependence on oil, lower their carbon footprint, and find non-toxic, safe alternatives to plastic.
My husband is a big coffee drinker and has been using this cup everyday and even bought a box to keep at work with him. These are great for on the go. When I worked outside the house I am guilty of double-cupping because I forgot to grab a sleeve or I did not have one available. Thanks to the Repurpose Insulated Cups Ingeo lining less CO2 is generated and it makes for an ideal alternative to other non-compostable cups like Styrofoam.
What makes Repurpose insulated hot cups different from standard coffee cups is the technology behind it. The Repurpose cup will keep your hot beverages warm for a longer period of time while keeping you from burning your hands trying to hold the cup. There are no sleeves and there is no longer a reason to use another cup.
Unlike traditional insulated cups Repurpose uses a patented insulation material on a single wall cup instead of extra layers of paper.
