Cup Chicmic Bamboo
Chic Mic offer a stylish range of reusable cups with a patented resealable bamboo lid, making them easy to carry with minimal spillage. The cups feel a bit like thick, lightweight cardboard and should last for years if looked after. There is also the added bonus that the whole thing can be popped in the dishwasher when you get home.
Made in Germany from sustainable bamboo fibre, corn powder and a minimal amount of melamine which is needed as a binder. Bamboo is also naturally sterile so it is odourless and won’t leave any taste residue. The cup has a twist on lid with a flip down sealing function and a handy silicone sleeve especially designed for hot liquids. Comes presented in a natural card box detailing the cup's eco credentials.
Bamboo is one of the world's most sustainable resources, and is biodegradable too so at the end of it's life, it can be crushed and popped in with the compost. The silicone sleeve is recyclable.
Dishwasher safe. Not suitable for microwave use. Please note the cup can break if dropped.
Save the environment
Disposable paper cups usually contain 5% polyurethane plastic, making composting and recycling extremely rare. Half a trillion disposable cups are manufactured annually around the world - that’s over 70 disposable cups for every person on the planet!
The bamboo fibre does contain a small amount of melamine as part of the blend which holds all of the fibres together and makes it durable.
When you‘re finished with your bamboo fibre cup you can crush it, soak it in boiling water and bury it with your organic compost to start the biodegrading process. The silicone sleeve is recyclable.
Quality tested according to EU standards 10/2011 and 1935/2004 by TÜV Rheinland.
