The BillieCup is expanding

3 March 2023

After a pre-pilot at Leiden Law School, a pilot starts in the cafés of the Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Lipsius and Wijnhaven. This way more and more people can contribute to the prevention of disposable waste!

What is the Billie Cup?

In the Netherlands, millions of take away coffee cups are thrown away every day and BillieCup wants to do something about this. A BillieCup is a reusable, interchangeable cup made entirely of recyclable polypropylene. Compared to other materials, it performs best in terms of energy consumption in production and recyclability. The cup can be used at least 500 times, is tasteless and contains no BPA or pollutants.

How does it work?

When you order a drink in a BillieCup, you pay a small deposit of 1 euro. If you then return your BillieCup, you will receive a BillieCoin that you can use to get a clean BillieCup later. This way you don't have to bring a reusable cup from home and a clean, environmentally conscious cup is always within reach!

So, do you want to enjoy a nice cup of coffee or tea and at the same time contribute to the reduction of waste? Choose a BillieCup!
