Cuppfee has been covered by the Irish Examiner as one of the 5 alternatives to fight the plastic consumption. The article covers various plastic uses from containers for food, cocktail cups, food containers and of course coffee cups.
The article underlines the large problems, which we are facing when using plastic packaging in our day to day consumption. The numbers are shocking. Here is an extract for England alone.
Single-use plastics in numbers
Around two billion plastic straws are thought to be thrown away in London each year.
Britons use 7.7 billion single-use plastic bottles annually.
Across the world, plastics make up 85% of beach litter.
Just 1% of the 2.5 billion disposable cups thrown away each year in the UK are recycled.
Cupffee has been described as a wafer cup made out of grains that remains solid for up to an hour and does not alter the taste of the coffee inside it. The product can be eaten with coffee or left to biodegrade completely.
