One of the positives of the movement towards more sustainable everyday actions is that access to sustainable option has increased. Rather than cutting out everyday items that aren't sustainable you can now replace them with more eco-friendly options.
As people become more aware of the negative impacts single-use plastic have on the world, straws were quick to came into the spotlight. Sustainability Victoria outlines how, single-use straws are not recyclable and often end up washing up on beaches, harming marine life. Many people have now made an effort to ask for no straw when out, which is a great option. If you are a straw lover, then we would suggest trying a reusable straw. Simply keep one on your bag and you will never need a non-reusable straw again.
Travel and keep cups such as Uppercup are great for tea and coffee.
Uppercup enhances the experience of drinking on the go. The double walled Uppercup is made of BPA free Tritan. The super durable construct ensures Uppercup is not fragile like ceramic or glass. The result is a BPA free design that not only insulates the cup but also doesn't absorb odours and flavours. Uppercup was designed by a team of globally renowned industrial designers, prev
iously winning both Melbourne & New York design awards. The Uppercup lid has been designed and sculpted to enhance the coffee drinking experience.
