The Story of rCUP

The story of rCUP began when a shocking statistic was made public back in 2016 - only 0.4% of disposable cups were actually being recycled.

The shock led to a public demand for a more sustainable way to enjoy coffee.

The team at rCUP rose to the challenge and started thinking about a way to use coffee cup waste. The problem with most paper coffee cups is that they have a plastic lining, this makes them difficult to recycle.

The clever scientists at rCUP decided that instead of trying to separate the two elements, why not recycle the whole cup. Old single-use cups are cleaned and shredded and the resulting fibers are formed into a plastic polymer. The polymer is blended with other recycled materials and then molded into the rCUP, the recycled reusable coffee cup.

The Creators of the rCUP

The company behind the rCUP is ashortwalk – an award-winning design company on the north coast of Cornwall in the UK.

Former Dyson designer and inventor Dan Dicker heads up the team. ashortwalk came out of a desire to create meaningful products from recycled materials, a short walk from the sea.

ashortwalk also work with retail brands and recycling firms who want to turn their waste into useful new products. This is what they call ‘closed loop’ design and contributes towards the development of the circular economy.

Amazing little cup!

I bought my rCup after reading about the potential dangers of drinking repeatedly from a bamboo cup, wanting to replace mine for something that was sustainably made and safe to drink from. I'm totally in love! My new rCup is the perfect size, has a beautiful simplistic design, and best of all is made from recycled materials without the melamine that's used to glue together many bamboo cups. Even upon questioning Reco about how their rCups are made I got a swift and transparent response explaining the process. I've since tried and tested my rCup many times since and am happy to confirm it's 100% leakproof, super easy to drink from and keeps my tea nice and warm - much needed now that the weather's turning wintery! A fantastic product made by a very caring and eco-aware team. You even get a little leaflet with your cup explaining how you're helping the environment and what their next steps are in terms of making their cups even more eco-friendly. (Buy one and you'l find out too ;) ) Refreshing to find such an honest and humble brand who make an awesome product, have fantastic core values, and excel at customer service. Hurrah for Reco and thanks for my rCup guys! :)

Great leak proof cup - Doesn't keep warm

This cup is great in all the following aspects:
- Environmental friendliness
- Leak proof
- 360 degree drink top (useful specially when driving)
- Look, colour and weight

The only reason I am taking 2 stars away, is because the cup doesn't keep the liquid warm AT ALL.

Best cup I’ve owned

Great cup, I’ve used it every day - much more than I expected. It’s completely leak proof and best of all, doesn’t have a weird plastic taste like other brands. The only cup you’ll ever need

The Best Travel Coffee Cups!

My husband and I love our rCups!

Everything about rCup is easy. They are easy to disassemble and wash, and we drink with ease as the top is basically like a drain with a pop-up stopper. Unlike other coffee cups (disposable and reusable), one can drink from anywhere on the rim which makes it fun and easy to drink especially while driving. No more looking or feeling for the hole in the lid!

We also love that the cups are made from recycled plastic and that they can be recycled, too. Oh, and we’ve been getting so many compliments, too!

rCups is a must have!

Excellently put Grace! We are really glad you are enjoying your rCUPs so much.
