BambooCUP are a range of reusable, biodegradable cups designed to preserve the taste and temperature of any drink. They are produced by a Bulgarian company known as Balev Bio. These colourful and vibrant cups are made from organic bamboo fibres along with corn flour and amino acid resins. The BambooCUP can be washed and reused for many years and the best part is once you’re done using it all you have to do is crumple the base, pour hot water over it and add it to an organic compost. The lid however is made from silicone which is not biodegradable but can be recycled. The eclectic designs offered by BambooCUP here at Eco Kadé will ensure that you enjoy your coffee/tea in the most stylish cup while on the go!

Momiji pads are free from the harsh chemicals and fragrances associated with their disposable counterparts.

Disclaimer- the Momiji natural cloth pads come wrapped in single use plastic. We did contact Momiji with regards to this. They confirmed with us that it is necessary due to the dust and humidity in Sri Lanka. This is to ensure that the pads reach you- the customer, undamaged and in immaculate condition. For now we’ll chalk this one as a forgivable use of plastic because it is encouraging you and other women out there to replace a single use plastic.
