The kenzai cup is part of a growing movement to stop the use of single-use 'paper' cups, it's estimated that in 30 years use of the modern 'paper' cups that are used virtually everywhere over 2 trillion of them have ended up in landfill and due to the plastic content of these cups, less than 1% have been recycled.
Kenzai (健在) in Japanese means strong, healthy, hearty and robust and that's exactly what the cup is! Made from bamboo fibre, the most sustainable and fastest growing crop in the world it is BPA, phthalate free. It's strong, dishwasher safe (all of the mug including the lid and sleeve) and if you treat it right should last for years! A major complaint about other reusable cups on the market, is the silicone lid; although the silicone is food grade, people have still said it 'taints' the drink in the cup. So we made the decision to fit kenzai with a unique bamboo screw lid; this has the added bonus of stopping leaks as well as limiting the non-biodegradable (but still recyclable) silicone on the cup. In fact, kenzai's cup and lid are fully biodegradable. Once you have finished with it you can throw it in your composter and it will fully break down. The silicone sleeve and stopper are recyclable.
Kenzai is great to drink from, it's hard to believe this is a reusable cup, and comes in a stylish dark brown and caramel colours. Being 16oz (473ml), it's big enough to suit everyone - giving space at the top even if you only buy 12 or 14oz drinks! Kenzai can even be used for iced drinks, smoothies or juices, the handy stopper on the top can double as a straw hole, making it even easier to enjoy your drinks in the summer.
