  • £9.99


400ml / 14oz rice husk cup in 'choose your stripes'** design, with silicone sleeve and lid.  Dishwasher and microwave safe, lightweight yet durable and strong, comfortable to hold and stylish!  Have your tea, coffee or cold drinks on the go with this reusable travel cup made from natural rice husk.

The cups contain no melamine or other plastics and are BPA and toxin free, so nothing nasty to leach into your drink.  Unlike many bamboo cups, these rice husk cups are genuinely biodegradable as they do not contain added melamine, which is a plastic.  The silicone sleeve and lid, whilst not biodegradable, are non-toxic and recyclable.

Look after your cup and it will last for years.  When you are ready to dispose of this cup, soak it in water overnight, crush and bury it in compost or soil.  It will start to biodegrade in soil within six months.

Comes in a cardboard gift box, which explains product sustainability, advantages over bamboo cups, and final disposal.
** These are 'climate stripes' that represent how the Earth has changed in temperature from 1850 to 2018. Each stripe represents a single year and is coloured based on the difference between the average temperature for that year and the average temperature during 1971-2000. If the temperature is below that average, the bar turns blue, changing in density depending on how below it is. Likewise, higher, it turns varying shades of red. As you can see there is a very drastic increase of red towards the later years showing a sharp increase in temperature. It was created by a scientist to highlight what the climate crisis is causing in a way that makes it quite clear to understand without being crushed by the science itself. A movement started called #showusyourstripes brought this image out into the mainstream and is widely acknowledged as a symbol of proof that the climate crisis exists.
