* PLEASE NOTE: ALL COFFEE CUPS COME WITH A WHITE LID INCLUDED *
Love Coffee, Hate Waste?
Your coffee is important, and so is what you drink it out of.
Australians drink more than 400 million takeaway coffees each year in disposable cups.
Up until recently, people believed they were doing the right thing by drinking their coffee from a “paper” cup, but that paper is often lined with plastic and makes it almost impossible to recycle, let alone biodegrade. Add to this the plastic of the disposable lid and the single use plastic and waste really starts to add up.
Our retro looking range of coffee cups are made to be reused again and again.
Made from 100% food-safe silicone – our coffee cups are light, tough, attractive, very durable and most importantly won’t affect your favourite coffee’s taste.
Keeping your coffee warm for longer whilst staying cool to the touch, our cups are designed to barista standards, which means they fit in the machine at your favourite café.
As our reusable coffee cups are 100% recyclable, you can now enjoy your coffee experience, without compromise.
Coffee on the go, with nothing to throw!
A note on our packaging: Our commitment to sustainability extends to our packaging which is made from post-consumer recycled material and printed with water based inks so it is suitable for both recycling or composting!

Reusable Coffee Mugs Melbourne
South Australia is probably the most progressive state when it comes to environmental awareness, and the demand for reusable coffee mugs in Melbourne remains consistently high.
Onya is a committed manufacturer of environmentally friendly products, and our range includes silicone reusable coffee mugs.
Why we like silicone
We use silicone to make our reusable coffee cups because it is a strong, safe, durable material that is easy to clean and care for. In addition, our silicone coffee cups are fully recyclable at the end of their long life span.
Silicone is 100 percent chemically inert, meaning it poses no risk to your health, and does not leach toxins when exposed to heat, as some paper, plastic, and polystyrene cups may do. It doesn’t do that because it doesn’t contain any.
We also like the way silicone holds its shape and doesn’t break down even after years of regular use. Silicone also has excellent heat insulation properties, so you can comfortably hold your hot drinks even when they’ve just been freshly poured.
Using silicone as our material for manufacturing these products is what we think makes them the best reusable coffee cups in Melbourne.
Disposable cups hurt the environment
The environmental benefits are also very important. Polystyrene, plastic and paper cups do not biodegrade.
Many people are surprised to see paper cups on the list, but in order to keep the cups from breaking down when hot water is added, most paper cups are reinforced with plastic and other chemical compounds. These same compounds prevent the cups from being successfully recycled or composted.
It’s not just that disposable cups add unnecessary waste to landfills (and Australians throw away 400 million of them every year) because many of the cups don’t even make it to landfill.
Plenty of people just throw them away right where they stand, and even when they do dispose of the cups properly, because the materials used to make the cups are so light, they’ll often blow away in the first gust of wind that comes along thus polluting our streets and waterways.
Disposable cups can harm animals
The disposable cups that don’t make it to landfill are actually a much worse environmental threat because they can cause such serious harm to wildlife.
All of the different disposable cup types are potentially a problem, but polystyrene is the most serious one because it is so easy for animals to bite pieces off it. Risks include choking, intestinal blockage, and possibly cancer.
Buying reusable cups is the best choice
It’s easy to do something positive to help reduce this problem. Buy reusable coffee mugs and avoid disposables whenever possible. Now you can get reusable coffee mugs online in Melbourne, so it’s easier than ever to make the environmentally responsible choice.
