People are waking up and greeting the sun, doing meditation, being more active, saying no to plastic and living more sustainably. So it only makes sense that Mugg & Bean has decided to weigh in on such a relevant topic. By introducing the new Mugg & Bean Eco Cup, they are making it easier for us to enjoy our coffee whilst living as sustainably and eco-consciously as we desire.
Mugg & Bean plastic-free initiative
As part of their contribution to #PlasticFreeJuly, Mugg & Bean has recently introduced their new fully compostable and biodegradable takeaway cups.
That’s right – their new takeaway cups are 100% compostable and biodegradable. So instead of adding to the landfills, you can drink your coffee and then even plant your cup when you’re done. That’s because it’s manufactured using material that comes from renewable resources.
The Eco Cup is currently being phased into all Mugg & Bean stores across South Africa. So customers can now sip their coffee guilt-free, knowing their cup is ecologically and environmentally friendly.
We’ve come to the tipping point of plastic-use and the damage it has done to our beautiful planet. With the concerns regarding the rise of landfills contributing to pollution around the world – I applaud Mugg & Bean for their efforts.
“At Mugg & Bean we aim to inspire generous living and the most sustainable way to demonstrate this is not only by giving back to our customers, but to the environment too, hence the decision to introduce a product that is eco-friendly.” says Liesl Gruber, Marketing Executive for Mugg & Bean South Africa.
In light of their new initiative, Mugg & Bean sent me one of their new Eco Cups with instructions on creating a bee garden inside the cup. Now I just have to wait a few weeks for my new basil seeds to grow and then the Eco Cup can be planted safely in the garden!
The Mugg & Bean Eco Cup is certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute for specific biologically active environments.
