I just got a new Keep Cup – my reusable ‘take away’ cup. My first one lasted three years.

Mr V bought me my first Keep Cup when I already had my normal cup to buy take away coffee with. But this cup became part of my daily work things like making sure I have my security pass with me every day. I had to have this cup with me everyday for any ‘hot beverage’ situation.
Over time, my colleagues bought one for themselves to use too and we’ve created a morning coffee club.
But in the last month, the lid became so loose, the coffee would drip when the lid was on.
So I had to replace my faithful Keep cup.
Keep Cup upgraded their lid design so the lid has a double seal and the coffee spout is bigger to drink from. You can see the original cup colour is only just starting to fade.
Why did I buy the same colours? So my barista wouldn’t need to relearn my coffee order. She smiled when I used this cup last week. And I still love these colours.
Keep Cup replaced my cup for me because I’m an ‘early adopter’ and long time Keep Cup used. From their calculator, by using my cup for 3 years instead of using disposable cups about 7 times a week, I’ve saved 15kg of landfill or 364 disposable cups per year. Thank you Keep Cup.
