Reusable lids

Our lids can last for years and fit any Billie Cup size. But for practical and hygienic purposes, the lids must be bought and do not apply to the deposit system. They’re yours to keep.

WHY PLASTIC?

Our cups are made of 100% recyclable polypropylene (PP). When deciding on the material for our cups, PP turned out to be the best fit for our product for 3 reasons:

  • Service life : PP cups are reusable and durable, which means that they can be washed with the highest frequency. They can therefore remain in our deposit system for a very long time.
  • Eco-friendliness : compared to other materials, PP performs best when it comes to life span, energy consumption in the manufacturing process and recyclability. Stainless steel, for example, is expensive to produce and therefore too expensive for a deposit system. Ceramic is breakable. And bamboo cups contain the plastic resin melamine, which makes them unrecyclable. Moreover, after 200 times they become less usable. This makes them a good option for personal use, but not for a large-scale deposit system.
  • Comfort : Billie Cups can handle all types of dishwashers and hot drinks. They are light, optimally stackable and taste neutral.

We’re constantly researching alternative materials. Bioplastics, which have similar properties and are also suitable for a deposit system, are currently not an option because they are still not completely biodegradable and often can only be recycled in a high energy consumption process. As soon as we find a better option than PP, we will be happy to switch. We hope that there will be new and better materials in the future for our Billie Cups.
