Gifts For The Environmentally Conscious

 Looking to give up plastic? Switching to a shampoo bar will help reduce the rubbish

Queenstown Soap Co. is based in stunning Queenstown, nestled on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, amidst the snowy peaks of New Zealand’s Southern Alps.

'We care about our environment and endeavour to keep our soaps as ethical and sustainable as possible. To this end, we lovingly handcraft them using organic and naturally sourced ingredients. Our soaps are hypoallergenic and biodegradable. All our packaging is made from a combination of recycled and renewable resources.'

This bag is made from 2.2 X 500ml plastic bottles! Reuse again and again and reduce your carbon footprint.
Do you know how many plastic shopping bags australians use each year? In excess of six billion! Tied together, these bags would loop the planet 37 times!

Why use CUPPACOFFEECUP?

It is estimated that 100-200 million disposable cups are used each year in New Zealand.  That number is even higher in Australia – with approximately 800 million disposable cups being used each year.

Many disposable cups cannot be recycled because they are lined with plastic.  Even compostable disposable cups cannot be composted without the correct facilities.  It is often the case that disposable cups end up in landfill.

Reusable cups that are used time and time again promote sustainability.  CUPPACOFFEECUP is made from food-grade polypropylene – a plastic that can be easily recycled at the end of its life and made into new consumer goods.  While, of course, there is some environmental impact in producing a CUPPACOFFEECUP, reusing your CUPPACOFFEECUP for a year or two will definitely help the planet!

At the end of its life, both the cup and lid can be recycled.

 

 

 

 


Our beautiful handcrafted Bee Smart organic food wraps are made from 100% cotton and are infused with a special blend of New Zealand local beeswax, organic jojoba oil and natural tree resin.

 

Call it portable art, call it high-brow hydration, whatever you call it, just know that this beautifully crafted, double-walled, food grade 304 stainless steel bottle is: One small stand against the mundane!
