Australian re-usables manufacturer Frank Green – best known for its takeaway coffee cups – has introduced a new line of products aimed at eliminating single-use plastic.

The 2019 cups have been updated with a flavour-saving ceramic inner layer, and they come with the same twistable seal and push-button lid for one-handed drinking on the go that the previous version had.

“Ceramic provides the ultimate experience when it comes to drinking your coffee how your barista intended,” says Frank Green CEO Ben Young. When combined with the lightness and durability of the stainless-steel exterior we’ve ensured the best of both worlds – the flavour stays right and you get all the benefits and mobility of a thermos.”

The containers also come in new colours (you can design your own online), and have a slightly reduced diameter.

Frank Green has also developed a recycled-polypropolene re-usable carry tray – for ferrying your colleagues’ coffees back safely – made from Frank Green manufacturing leftovers. Like some of the Next Generation Frank Green cups it also has built-in Visa paywave technology that links back to the Frank Green Pay App, so you can tap if you’re in a hurry and have your hands full.

Re-usable-straw packs have also beed added to the range. They come with two stainless steel straws and a cleaner, in a zippered pouch. The pouch is made from the same material as the the new re-usable shopping bag, which is manufactured from the equivalent of eight single-use plastic botles. The bags, which also double as backpacks, can hold up to six kilograms or five 1.25-litre bottles. And there are new lids with built-in straws available for the Frank Green water bottles.

The new range is available now at selected retailers and online at frankgreen.com.au
