Returnable Cup System

At Circular&Co. we’re supporting local communities, groups and businesses to make circularity accessible for everyone. We can help organisations create impactful ‘Returnable Cup Schemes’ where customers can loan a reusable cup for a small deposit, usually complete with their favourite beverage at a discounted rate. Once used, their cup can be returned and refunded or kept in exchange for the original deposit.

To ban single-use, organisations might opt for alternatives that cause more harm than good. Our Circular solutions are made from recycled paper cups, designed to last at least 5 years and 100% recyclable. We’re pioneering the Circular Design movement because we know it’s the sustainable solution to living within our planet’s limits; our mission is for everyone else to know it too.

Circular Returnable Cup

Reusable Cup Scheme

The Lost Gardens of Heligan are one of Cornwall’s premier tourist destinations with over 3000 visitors a day – as you can imagine, that means a lot of tea and coffee! Circular&Co’s NOW Cup offered the perfect product for a reusable cup scheme where customers could return the cup at the end of their visit and redeem a deposit, or for them to keep their branded NOW Cup as a souvenir – the low price point encouraged easy adoption among visitors and helped spread information on the benefits of circularity.

Love Topsham is a community group based in Devon that contacted Circular&Co. with the aim of fostering a reusable cup scheme. They aimed to reduce the 10,000 single-use cups estimated to be left behind each week in outdoor spaces. Coffee cup litter had become heightened by the covid crisis and increased visitors to the area with limited access to bins. With the support of partnering local businesses, the uptake of their Circular NOW Cups and subsequent waste reduction has been very positive.
