Who doesn't admire a Dragonfly?
Join the revolution! Have your tea, coffee or cold drinks on the go with our travel cup made from natural Rice Husk. Look after it and it will last for years.
These biodegradable coffee/tea cups contain no melamine or other plastics and are BPA and toxin free.
Reusable, Light, Durable, Comfortable, Stylish, Strong, Easy to clean (no staining).
These rice husk cups are genuinely biodegradable as they do not contain melamine which is a plastic.
When you are ready to dispose of this cup, soak it in water overnight, crush and bury it in compost or soil. It will start to biodegrade in soil within six months.
What is rice husk anyway? It is the outermost layer of protection encasing a rice grain. It is converted into a useful material by being combined with natural resin(with no added chemicals) to make a hard, durable biodegradable substance which is ideal for making cups and other tableware.
Comes in a cardboard gift box which explains product sustainability, advantages over bamboo cups, and final disposal.
I picked this design as there is something magical about dragonflies. Did you know that dragonflies were some of the first winged insects to evolve, some 300 million years ago?
A visitation from a dragonfly means you have been especially selected by one of the most extraordinary creatures on Earth.
Modern dragonflies have wingspans of only two to five inches, but fossil dragonflies have been found with wingspans of up to three feet.
The flight of the dragonfly is so special that it has inspired engineers who dream of making robots that fly like dragonflies.
