Silicone Reusable Coffee Mugs Melbourne
South Australia is probably the most progressive state when it comes to environmental awareness, and the demand for reusable coffee mugs in Melbourne remains consistently high.
Onya is a committed manufacturer of environmentally friendly products, and our range includes silicone reusable coffee mugs.
Why we like silicone
We use silicone to make our reusable coffee cups because it is a strong, safe, durable material that is easy to clean and care for. In addition, our silicone coffee cups are fully recyclable at the end of their long life span.
Silicone is 100 percent chemically inert, meaning it poses no risk to your health, and does not leach toxins when exposed to heat, as some paper, plastic, and polystyrene cups may do. It doesn’t do that because it doesn’t contain any.
We also like the way silicone holds its shape and doesn’t break down even after years of regular use. Silicone also has excellent heat insulation properties, so you can comfortably hold your hot drinks even when they’ve just been freshly poured.
Using silicone as our material for manufacturing these products is what we think makes them the best reusable coffee cups in Melbourne.
Disposable cups hurt the environment
The environmental benefits are also very important. Polystyrene, plastic and paper cups do not biodegrade.
Many people are surprised to see paper cups on the list, but in order to keep the cups from breaking down when hot water is added, most paper cups are reinforced with plastic and other chemical compounds. These same compounds prevent the cups from being successfully recycled or composted.
It’s not just that disposable cups add unnecessary waste to landfills (and Australians throw away 400 million of them every year) because many of the cups don’t even make it to landfill.
Plenty of people just throw them away right where they stand, and even when they do dispose of the cups properly, because the materials used to make the cups are so light, they’ll often blow away in the first gust of wind that comes along thus polluting our streets and waterways.
Disposable cups can harm animals
The disposable cups that don’t make it to landfill are actually a much worse environmental threat because they can cause such serious harm to wildlife.
All of the different disposable cup types are potentially a problem, but polystyrene is the most serious one because it is so easy for animals to bite pieces off it. Risks include choking, intestinal blockage, and possibly cancer.
Buying reusable cups is the best choice
It’s easy to do something positive to help reduce this problem. Buy reusable coffee mugs and avoid disposables whenever possible. Now you can get reusable coffee mugs online in Melbourne, so it’s easier than ever to make the environmentally responsible choice.
