When Jamie and Abigail Forsyth started a café business in Melbourne in 1998, disposable cups were just entering the public landscape. As the business grew, so did their concerns about the volume of packaging being consumed, particularly disposable cups; lined with polyethylene - they were non-recyclable.
In 2007, following unsuccessful trials of existing reusable cups, they decided to design and make their own – a barista standard reusable cup for people to enjoy better coffee on the go.
They took a huge gamble that usability, sustainable manufacturing practice and design aesthetics could drive behaviour change and make a difference to how people think about convenience culture. KeepCup has grown from a solution to a problem, to define a product category.
Know The Origin Tote Bag
These bags were made at Freeset Factory. Freeset exists for the many women who have never had the choice to be free. They care about the thousands in West Bengal, India who are vulnerable to sex trafficking. These women don’t get to choose their occupation, and they want to change that. They make bags, tees, and hand-woven fabrics, and love that they are part of India’s long tradition of cotton and jute production.
Plastic Alternatives Straw
We have partnered with Plastic Alternatives to create our straws. A Bolton based company, Plastic Alternatives was set up with the aim of supplying businesses an alternative to plastic and paper straws. Whilst paper is better for the environment, they are still seen as disposable and therefore contribute to worldwide litter. Currently there are 5 'garbage patches' polluting the world’s oceans and destroying the delicate ecosystem. It's up to all of us to make the change and do our bit to reduce the incredible amounts of plastic that find its way into the world’s oceans and destroys sea life. Stainless Steel straws provide a perfect long term sustainable alternative.
