4 Reasons Why You Should Switch to Reusable Coffee Cups

Posted on August 02 2023

Our mission at Urban Ethos has always been to change consumer habits for the better. That's why our great little coffee cups are completely reusable, recyclable, sustainable and eco-friendly.

The popularity of owning a reusable coffee cup is still trending, and nothing is more reusable than our MOKA range. Made from recycled coffee grinds that would otherwise have been wasted, we provide a high-quality, hazard-free material that keeps your delicious coffee warm for longer than a paper cup (not to mention you can use it for as long as you want). 

Available in different colours and sizes to fit your style, now you can enjoy your daily coffee to the fullest, knowing that you're giving back to mother nature.


Why You Should Switch to Reusable Coffee Cups


Environmental Impact

You might be asking yourself how much of a difference reusable coffee cups really make to the well-being of the environment. It turns out it may be a lot more than you think.


Single-use cups (even the ones that are made from paper) will usually have plastic lining as part of their materials, which means they are difficult to recycle and will likely end up in general waste or a landfill. These landfills contribute to harmful toxins being soaked into the soil as well as eventually making their way to the oceans. The microplastic waste that comes from single-use coffee cups is incredibly harmful to organic life’s digestion and the natural ecosystem. In fact, a recent scientific study suggests that 92% of the plastic pollution in the ocean comes from microplastics.


So when you choose to use one of our sustainable coffee cups, you’ll have the peace of mind that you're not contributing to the harmful pollution of the ocean. We say you’ve earned yourself a coffee and should feel good about it.


Cost Savings

Coffee cups may seem like a tiny expense whenever you get one like a shopping bag from the local supermarket. We don't tend to think about the cost of it. But if you like your coffee, then you will probably be going through a few paper cups every week, and that cost slowly starts to add up.


Our MOKA range is designed to be reusable, dishwasher-friendly and build sustainable habits of living (some coffee shops will even offer discounts to customers who bring their own cups). So when you only use one ecup for all your coffee drinking, you’ll save money in the long run and help out the environment in the process. Plus, our MOKA range looks the part, being available in a range of sizes and colours. The tough material is designed to keep your coffee warm and make you feel good about practising sustainability.


It's the right way to drink coffee - economically smart meets environmentally conscious.


Great Customisation and Styling Options

Our collection of reusable coffee cups comes in a range of sizes and colours. The MOKA brand is ethically sourced and is made from repurposed coffee grounds/husks that would have otherwise been wasted. Now the reused materials create barista-friendly cups that can be used for all your coffee needs and come fully heat-resistant so you can enjoy a hot cuppa for longer.


This range is available in pebble blue or sand yellow colours to give that natural vibe that we just love, with a 350ml or 475ml size, depending on how you like it. Feel good about your coffee habit with our range of reusable coffee cups that are completely BPA-free, with extensive testing of all products to be as sustainably sourced as possible. Our promise to you.


Health Benefits

Not only is our mission to source products from sustainable practices but also to make absolutely sure that everything we make comes from the safest materials as well. Looking after your well-being goes hand in hand with giving back to nature and we want to share that.

Our collection of reusable coffee cups is made of much higher quality materials than single-use or paper cups and is extensively tested to be 100% plastic-free.

Plastic buildup can be harmful over time, and the frequent use of plastic and paper coffee cups means ingesting these toxic materials and other harmful chemicals that, in the long run, could potentially have an impact on your health. Stay safe and stay sustainable with our eco coffee cups.
