Eco To Go Reusable Rice Husk Coffee Cup Review

I’ve been on the lookout for a re-usable coffee cup for a while now. I work from home so I try to get out of the house for a walk every day. In the winter I’ll go to a coffee shop but when the sun is out I prefer to sit outside. Building on the success of giving up plastic water bottles this year, my aim is to never use a disposable coffee cup again!

The perfect reusable coffee cup

The hunt for a good reusable coffee cup has not been as easy as I thought. Although they are easy to find I’m really fussy. My cup had to:

  • be small enough to pop in my handbag
  • be lightweight
  • have a sealable lid
  • feel nice, I don’t like the taste of plastic

When eco-to-go sent me one of their reusable rice husk cups I was amazed that it ticked every single box.

The most amazing thing about it is the way it feels. It is cool to the touch, like a ceramic mug. Eco-to-go tell me that the strength is somewhere between plastic and ceramic so it will be safe in my handbag and withstand a couple of knocks. If I do break it it will only take 90 days to decompose in an industrial composting plant! In my compost bin at home it will take a couple of years but that is so much better than adding to the trillions of single use cups that are in landfill now.

What is a rice husk?

I’d never heard of it, it is agricultural waste and around 125 million tons of rice husks are produced each year. The eco-to go cups are made from 80% husk and 20% plant resin.

The nitty gritty

  • The eco-to-go cups come in large and small. I don’t like to drink coffee in pints so the small one is perfect for me.
  • The lid and sleeve are silicone, this is not biodegradable but can be recycled, or even better reused.
  • The rice husk cups are dishwasher safe
  • You can put them in the microwave
  • The come with red, blue, green, purple and pink sleeves and tops
  • They won’t break the bank and you can buy them at www.allianceonline.co.uk
