A handy and stylish cup for people who love coffee on the go
Did you know that 20% of all office waste is disposable cups? Not discarded print-outs. Not pencil shavings. Not post-it note doodles. No. A full fifth of all office waste comes from throwaway cups from the coffee shop down the road. Great stat, but so what?
Well all of this waste wouldn’t matter so much if disposable cups were recycled afterwards, but the plastic-coated inner lining actually rules most of them out of the process. So for all the convenience of a quick cup of coffee on the go, we throw away something that can take fifty years or more to break down in a landfill! Not so disposable after all then.
Available in two sizes and two different colours:
12oz Purple and White
16oz Turquoise and Black
16oz Purple and White
12oz Turquoise and Black
Use the sealable lid to keep the coffee hot and in the Keep Cup
Step forward the Keep Cup – aptly named because that’s exactly what you do with it. The Keep cup comes in standard takeaway sizes, which means they’ll fit underneath most commercial espresso machines’ group heads. So the next time you call into Costarnerobucks for your skinny hazelnut macchiato, ask for your coffee to be served straight into this smart-looking vessel. You can save them the cost of a cup and save the planet at the same time!
Not only does the Keep Cup look the bee’s knees, but it has a bundle of practical features as well. A soft tactile silicon band runs around the body of the Keep Cup to protect your hand from the heat. The Keep Cup also has a sealable lid with a sipper hole for quaffing your beverage. Take that, paper cups!

Unfortunately, I reluctantly have to give this cup 1 star. I used it today for the first time and it didn`t keep my tea any warmer than a disposable cup, in fact, my drink was stone cold by the time I got to Hammersmith (after 5 stations on the piccadilly line!) and the plastic mug made my tea taste of chemicals although I followed the instructions and it had been through the dishwasher twice before its first use. I`m not disappointed with firebox-faultless service as always-just the product! Em, Dagenham, UK - 30th October 2011

How long do liquids stay warm in this? Xx. Alysha, Doncaster - 17th August 2011
Firebox says: The Keep Cup will keep your delicious beverages warm for 20-30 minutes longer than your average disposable cup.
My Keep Cup is awesome!!
I work in a medium secure hospital environment, so no ceramic mugs are allowed on the ward or in the grounds on breaks, so my Keep Cup is able to stay with me all day, keeping me full of lovely coffee to get me through my 12 hour shifts!! Just don't put it down anywhere, as is a very sought after item, with staff and patients alike!! :)

This cup is awesome! As we are not allowed glass/smashable items on pool this plastic cup is ideal for a cuppa to start the shift! Laura, Stafford - 14th May 2011
Does this leak? And will it hold tea? I'm wondering because I might get one of these for school to have tea when it's cold, but my bag is rumbled about and jolted up and down a lot, will this make it leak. Connor, Wales - 23rd March 2011
Firebox says: It does have a bung to prevent spills and leaks, but for such rigorous use we would recommend the Contigo Autoseal Mug: http://www.firebox.com/product/3053/Contigo-Autoseal-Travel-Mug
