G'Day for Glass Class Catering

JOCO reusable glass cups have arrived in the UK with the argument that glass, rather than plastic, is the ‘truest path to untainted taste and optimal environmental sustainability’ for reusable cups.

The JOCO product range includes the 12oz and 8oz cups and a 6-cup carry tray. The larger 16oz cup will be available in June 2014.

Each cup is made from high grade, strengthened, borosilicate glass with a thermal silicone sleeve and an ergonomic, splash safe, silicone lid. Available in a variety of contemporary colours, they are microwave safe, 100% BPA free, lead free and barista certified.

To further encourage reusability, there is a 100% recyclable paper canister that can be used to store coins, pencils, and paper straws or to plant seedlings.
