Bringing your own cups for drinks or containers for takeaway food means one less unnecessary piece of waste to landfill.

Costs and Benefits

New Zealanders throw away over 1/2 billion disposable coffee cups a year! BYO cups and containers reduce mountains of landfill waste, save businesses money and offer a far more enjoyable drinking experience than the standard takeaway cup.

There are also a lot of different options when it comes to buying reusable cups. Including New Zealand’s very own Ideal Cup and the popular Australian Keep Cup. Some benefits of BYO are:

  • You can get a discount for using them
  • Nicer to drink from than takeaway cup
  • Lid stays on better – less spills!
  • They look great on your office desk or car cup holder
