Mission Statement on IdealCup's Website https://idealcup.co.nz/mission-possible-2/

We’re on a MISSION POSSIBLE to eliminate
single-use cups ending up in landfill and with
your support, we're one step closer every day.

A key part of our reuse commitment is
managing the full life-cycle of every IdealCup,
ensuring if it needs to be disposed of, this is dealt
with in the most sustainable way.

And that's where you can help us. We ask if your
IdealCup or lid should be deemed no longer
usable, you return it to where you purchased it, or
contact us and we'll collect it at no cost to you.

We return all unusable IdealCups to our
manufacturer here in NZ and they grind
them down and make them in to new
IdealCups - This is called PRODUCT STEWARDSHIP.

Our MISSION POSSIBLE is our DNA
- it's what drives us to continue to
make CHANGE for GOOD. Thank you,
for CHOOSING to REUSE with IdealCup.
