The stylish double-walled cups are on-trend with knitted reindeer, trees and snowflakes on a matt finish, and come in two Christmassy colours – red 12oz or green 8oz. A subtle line of text by the join reads: ‘What’s knitty and pretty and GREEN all over? Me! I’m completely compostable! Caution – cheerful contents!’

These festive cups keep hot drinks warm with two layers of sustainably sourced EU board. Lined with cornstarch, not plastic, these cups are completely compostable. Made in the British Isles from low-carbon EU materials, this cup won Best New Product in the first ever Climate Week Awards.
The limited edition festive cups were designed by Vegware’s in-house creative team to fit in with the current knitwear trend. Vegware’s specialist Print My Cup service offers quality custom-printed cups as few as 1,000 cups, with the first hour of design time free of charge.

The judges recognised Vegware for its groundbreaking work helping businesses recycle used catering disposables and complimented Vegware as: “An innovative company whose sole aim is to provide environmentally friendly alternatives to one of the environments threats – plastic containers”. This comes in the same year as the fast-growing firm topped the FSB UK Streamline Awards and won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
