Instructions & Care
Push open push close
rCUP is open when the push button is in its down position and closed when raised. As a guide, when you can see the moulded line on the inside of the lid rCUP is open.
To avoid spillages when you put the lid on, ask your barista not to fill above the marked fill line.
Be Care- It’s Hot!
Hot liquid over 65°C can cause steam pressure to build-up inside a sealed cup. If the push button becomes stiff to operate due to pressure build up, loosen the lid first to relieve the pressure.
Do not force the push button as liquid could spurt out
Dishwasher safe (top shelve)
rCUP is only watertight if the seals and mechanism are kept clean. We suggest that you clean your cup after every use and can’t be held responsible for leaks if foreign objects become trapped in the seal or mechanism. DO NOT MICROWAVE!

Circular & Co, previously known as rCUP, was thought up and designed by ashortwalk – a design team based in Cornwall, and led by former Dyson designer and inventor Dan Dicker. Their desire as a team of designers is to create meaningful and functional products from recycled materials. They believe in ‘closed loop’ design which is turning other peoples waste into new and useful products, which contributes to the development of the circular economy
After highlighting the issue of used coffee cups going to landfill, they set about creating their reusable cup made from waste, that helps recycle waste, AND reduces waste. It’s a one of a kind product for a solution to all the used paper cups that are thrown away every year.
It’s all about the circular economy – by creating products from used cups these guys have stimulated the demand for the once worthless used paper cup. This demand increases the value and worth of used paper cups and allows recycling firms to invest in the infrastructure required to recycle them.
In real terms discarded coffee cups have zero value – in fact it actually costs £100 a tonne to dispose of them. But when they capture and collect these cups for recycling, the value increases to around £35 a tonne. If you then process them into a useful polymer the value shoots up to £1,200 a tonne. When this polymer is used to make a new product, say, a Circular & Co reusable cup, its intrinsic value becomes £20,000 a tonne! This is the huge value of closed loop product design.
