How it works

What about the lids?

Either choose a TCX Travel Pack add-on which includes a travel 'dry bag' for your cup and 2 TCX lids. Use/keep the lids (they’re yours!) or use a recyclable lid from your café instead.

You can collect your travel pack from any participating TCX cafe.

 

Features:
  • 100% recyclable lids made from LDPE (low-density polyethylene)
  • 100% recyclable lid clips (made of Tritan)
  • 100% recyclable bag made from recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles

EVERY TIME A TCX CUP IS USED, A DISPOSABLE CUP IS SAVED FROM LANDFILL

ABOUT

We are for zero waste to landfill. TCX is a practical solution to close the loop and eliminate the production of, and waste caused by, single-use items – and we’re starting with coffee cups.

In Australia alone, 1.2 billion paper cups with plastic linings are used for ten minutes (if that!) and then discarded to landfill every year. And over 500 billion are produced world-wide. We believe there are much better ways to use and reuse the earth’s resources and we exist to reimagine the linear economy model that is not serving us or the planet.

The Cup eXchange (TCX) is a convenient and scalable solution that enables all of us to play a part in creating a world free of the waste and pollution caused by widespread single-use cups.

Our Difference

 

TCX is a technology-enabled exchange program created to eliminate the need to produce single-use items all together.

 TCX replaces the need to manufacture and distribute single-use items and we’re starting with coffee cups!  We call this a war on production.

A scalable solution that closes the loop. At end of life, our TCX cups are repurposed into brand new cups – zero waste.

We have kept the look of the iconic paper cup and made it 100% sustainable.

TCX is the affordable and convenient alternative – for consumers and cafés. Free of charge to cafés and food & beverage retailers and less than $1 per week for consumers to access.
