Coffee cups are now estimated to be the second largest contributor to litter waste after plastic bottles. We use 1 billion coffee cups a year. And this number is increasing rapidly. The idea of using a reusable cup is great. But in reality they are bulky and not an option when you are always on the go. Like us, you probably already have a selection of reusable cups gathering dust in the kitchen cupboard. We’re just not using them. Why is that? To our way of thinking they are usually too big, too small, too heavy, too unstable, too leaky and too easy to forget. All we wanted was a reusable cup that you … errr … actually reuse!
Made in the UK, Pokito makes it easier than ever to ditch the disposables and switch to a reusable cup. It's the eco-friendly cup that adjusts to 3 sizes, and collapses down when your done.
The reusable cup that you can take anywhere:
REUSABLE - Incredibly strong, light and durable
SAFE - FDA approved, European made materials
PRACTICAL - Seals tight and insulated middle band
COLLAPSIBLE - Squishes to 4.5cm
LIGHT - Weighs only 125g
HYGIENIC - Easy to clean and fully dishwasher proof
How much do you want to drink today? Depends? No problem. Adjust your pokito to suit. Pop it open to grande size 475ml (or 16oz), medio 350ml (or 12oz) or espresso 230ml (or 8oz). Simple!
In the development phase we trialled a variety of materials including silicone but our beta testers questioned its feel, heaviness and slight odour. We eventually decided on TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) for the soft component and PP (polypropylene) for the hard bands.
