8 of the best reusable coffee cups

Say bye-bye to takeaway cups with our favourite eco-friendly options

If you’re anything like us, your morning coffee is LIFE! But coffee cup pollution is a big deal, with billions of cups ending up in landfill each year. A small change can make huge difference in the war on waste so that’s why we’ve compiled our favourite reusable coffee cups for your caffeine pleasure – enjoy!

Pottery for the Planet

These ceramic cups bring us joy every morning when we’re lining out for our double-shot flat white. They’re handmade from ceramic and feature a silicon lid. A work of art to savour your morning caffeine hit!


From Star Wars design to rainbow colours and limited edition cork Keep Cup caters for just about everyone. They make both plastic and glass varieties in a range of sizes. We love the tiny sizes for little one’s babycinos and the bigger ones for milk shakes.


These nifty numbers aren’t just about providing a cool cup for your morning cap, they’re tackling landfill head on by being the only offering on the market that’s actually made from coffee cup waste. They don’t leak, are fully insulated, 100 per cent recyclable and you can even buy them at your local 7-Eleven.

Frank Green

BPA free and Visa payWave activated, these cups are revolutionising how we go about everyday transactions. You can customise your colours and they now have a stainless steel, triple-walled insulated offering too. We’re also fans of their water bottles and bright reusable bags.


We recently purchased a Sol cup after lusting over them for months, and using it has provided great daily joy. Made from glass, they feel delicate yet durable and the silicon sleeve and lid can be purchased separately. They have a great range of colours, especially the pastels.

Clay cups

You know a collaboration between and barista and a ceramic artist can only produce good things, and Clay Cups are no exception. Handmade, they’ve been designed with the urban landscape in mind and the felt cuffs are a point of difference to many of the silicon offerings.

Perky by Nature

These colourful guys are made from bamboo and corn fibres and natural resin, and can be buried at the end of their life as they’re biodegradable. Recyclable, sealable silicon lids mean no mess and they also donate part of their sales to Aussie wildlife rescue, WIRES. They’re available in small and medium and you can also customise your lid colours.

Klean Kanteen

Two hours hot or 10 hours cold, the Klean Kanteen 8oz (237ml) insulated tumbler is a winner for tea, coffee a sneaky hot chocolate as well as a small smoothie or juice. We love the simplicity of the black and steel colour ways, but if you’re after something a little brighter it comes in green and berry shades too. As well as being double-walled, it’s BPA free and has a lid that guarantees no accidental spills in your handbag. It’s also available in 16oz (423ml) and 20oz (592 ml) sizes, which keep drinks hot for up to 6 hours and cold for up to 24.
