Our 2GoCup has been specifically designed by our team for our Deposit & Return Scheme.
The cup is made from food-grade polypropylene plastic, with a silicone band for heat protection.
Our lid is designed to sit into the cup rather than clip around it. This reduces the chance of spillage and allows for ease of use for the consumer.
The cup and lid itself can be fully recycled once the silicone band is removed from both. The silicone band can be placed in the general waste bin.
Each 2GoCup is fully dishwasher safe.
It is estimated that worldwide we drink 1.6 billion cups of coffee every day. The planet runs on coffee. Half a trillion disposable cups are manufactured every year. That’s over 70 cups for every person on the planet. The production and disposal of cups have negative effects on the environment.
But if they’re made from paper, then surely they can be recycled? Unfortunately, this is not the case. Many paper cups have a thin plastic lining to keep the coffee from dripping out. The plastic lining is difficult to separate and most recycling facilities do not have the facilities to do this.
It is a similar situation for many single-use cups that call themselves “recyclable” or “compostable”. While under the right circumstances these claims are valid, less than 1% of the cups we produce are recycled. Most single-use cups aren’t disposed of in the correct facilities, they’re left in bins on the high street, or in the home, and many of these will end up in landfill.
What about recyclable or compostable cups?
Due to improper disposal and lack of collection systems, many countries cannot correctly recycle single-use cups
90%+ of single-use cups end up in landfill

Each 2GoCup lasts a minimum of 3 years if it is used every single day. That's 1,000,000's of single-use cups saved from landfill simply by switching to 2GoCup!
