That is... until now! These recycled single-use coffee cup lid earrings bring you a unique conversation starter. Wear these porcelain inspired earrings, while using your reusable coffee cup and spread the word about how easy it is to make your caffeine hit better for the planet.

Quick facts

  • 'Compostable' plant based plastics pose issues for commercial facilities because there are no regulations around what constitutes a plant based plastic and they are often made of materials that provide no nutrients to the final compost products. 
  • Coffee cup lids are not easily recyclable due to their complex composition and contamination with beverage residue.
  • Due to their small size and mixed material composition, coffee cup lids pose challenges for recycling facilities and generally head to landfill throughout New Zealand. 

Made from recycled single-use coffee cup lids in Christchurch, NZ by Remix Plastic. Every one is unique with its own colours (and blemishes) - they are fully functioning and we celebrate their uniqueness, as we hope you do!
