By now, everyone must have their own “zero-waste” kit complete with steel/bamboo/glass straws, reusable bottles and cutlery, and refillable toiletry containers among many others. It’s a trend that we don’t mind investing in.

If you’re yet to complete your kit with collapsible cups (skip the single-use plastic cups from your taho vendor, favorite ice cream or froyo store), here are some shops you can buy them from. P.S. They’re all BPA-free and made from 100% food-grade silicone, of course.

Daydream Republic call its collapsible cups Sip ‘n Stash. The microwave- and dishwasher-safe cup stands two inches when collapsed. It also has a two-layer twist cap (with a hard-to-open mouthpiece) making leaking impossible. To make it handier, it’s equipped with a carrying ring so you can hang it in your bag. Their Grande cup (450ml) is priced at P550. Available online.

Ecoheroes’ cups are also spill-proof and come in five colors. The 350ml cup is priced at P350 and comes with Scabric Pouch. Ecoheroes also sell collapsible food containers, FYI. Available online.

Basekamp’s collapsible cup is engineered more for outdoor activities like hiking so it’s lightweight in 8 oz. Only an inch when collapsed, the cup is definitely pocketable. It’s priced at P125. Available in Basekamp stores in malls.
