In a move towards sustainability and in line with the Singapore government’s calls for the public to bring their own reusable food containers when purchasing food, convenience store chain, 7-Eleven has rolled out a reusable and portable tumbler made from 100% recyclable materials in Singapore.
While disposable paper cups are often thought of as environmentally friendly, they are actually deceptively harmful. The thin plastic or wax film on the inner surface that makes a paper cup waterproof means that most paper recycling plants are unable to process these cups, resulting in them being incinerated or sent to landfill – and neither is particularly good for the environment.
Did you also know that because of industry requirements, disposable paper cups are often made out of virgin tree pulp instead of recycled paper? In fact, 50 kilograms of paper cups are discarded everyday, contributing to already overflowing landfills.
Enter 7Café’s new tumbler
Designed to be eco-friendly while fully functional, the 7Café Tumbler contains an outer thermal insulation layer made from used paper coffee cups. And unlike its disposable counterpart, the tumbler is reusable and 100% recyclable. Thoughtfully designed for up to 10 years of use, every 7Café Tumbler purchased is a contribution to the global effort to reduce waste and adopt reusable and recyclable materials.
Practical and versatile
The tumbler’s intuitive design allows the user to easily open it with one hand by pushing the lid down, and its insulation layer made of recycled paper cups ensures that your drink will stay warm (or cold) for at least 45 minutes, making it ideally suited for the beverage of your choice. The 7Café tumbler has also done away with the pesky lid opening that most of its competitors feature, providing the added convenience of a 360-degree drinking experience. Available for just S$15, the UK-made tumbler was also designed to be completely leak-proof and allows you to open and drink from it as you would with a typical coffee cup.
Perfect with affordable all-day breakfast combos from 7-Eleven
