Your Guide to Frank Green Water Bottles and Coffee Cups
If you're still contemplating which reusable coffee cup or water bottle to go for, then let me introduce you to our new Frank Green range of sustainable cups and bottles. Designed and made in Australia, these amazing bottles actually incorporate innovative technologies, so they're the real deal when it comes to 'smart' drink storage.
When you throw away a takeaway coffee cup or disposable plastic drink bottle, chances are it will end up as landfill. After the success of the ABC's War on Waste, we all know by now that we don't have to contribute to this unnecessary waste, and that there are now easy eco-friendly alternatives available. Sustainable water bottles and coffee cups are a great solution to single-use drinks, coming in a range of different colours and designs to suit everyone's needs and sense of style. Designed and made in Australia, the Frank Green SmartCups and SmartBottles are perfect for whichever beverage is your drink of choice, whether it's coffee, tea, juice, a smoothie or just water.
Benefits of reusable coffee cups and water bottles
One of the most obvious benefits of using reusable coffee cups and water bottles is their environmental impact. Plastic isn't designed to break down, so it ends up as landfill with other non-recyclable materials, emitting gas and polluting our precious planet. Using cups and bottles made of sturdy, safe materials can also be of benefit to your health. The BPA used in most single-use plastic bottles has been linked to a number of health issues, while the plastic used to create Type 1 plastic bottles (the category most plastic water bottles fall into) contains PET which has been linked to bacterial contamination when used more than once.
What is special about Frank Green water bottles and coffee cups?
The Frank Green team spent four years refining their reusable SmartBottles and SmartCups until their Scandi-inspired designs were as functional as they were beautiful. Inspired by Scandinavian design, cups and bottles were tested for functionality by being filled with boiling water and thrown in the air and against a wall! The result was a BPA-free, spill-proof lid with non-slip grip and a visually stunning bottle design made from eco-friendly materials. What I love about Frank Green is that they've taken their innovative design that one step further, incorporating CaféPay technology into both the SmartCup and SmartBottle so that you can actually pay for your coffee and get loyalty rewards by tapping the lid at participating cafés.
Frank Green Original SmartCup
The Frank Green Original SmartCup is so much more than a reusable coffee cup. Your coffee or tea will stay hotter for longer thanks to the cup's double-walled thermo plastic outer layer insulation, plus you won't have to deal with any annoying spills as the lid is spill-proof and has been designed for optimum liquid flow. Coming in a range of funky colours to suit your style, connect to the CaféPay app to pay for your coffee without needing your wallet. This cup is a standard size designed to fit in cup holders in the car, bike or pram, plus it's even dishwasher safe. Available in a small to regular 230ml size, and a 340ml size for those who always opt for a large.
Frank Green Original SmartBottle
If you're not a coffee or tea drinker but love a smoothie, juice or flavoured water, then the Frank Green Original SmartBottle is for you. Featuring the same CaféPay function for your takeaway juices or smoothies, this 740ml capacity bottle also has its very own Hydrate app which calculates all the single-use bottles you are saving from landfill and measures how much you drink each day to ensure you're staying hydrated. This BPA-free, odour-resistant bottle is also dishwasher safe, so it's easy to keep it clean and free from bacteria, and features a spill-proof lid with a wide opening so you can easily fit in ice cubes or cut fruit.
