Meet Cupple®: The Conscientious Eco-Bottle… With A Twist!

Cupple® is an eco-friendly water bottle and cup combined together “as one:” simply twist off the outer sleeve – to reveal the insulated cup and leak-proof lid.

Cupple®’s Co-Founders (Amanda McDowell and Eve Fry) launched the business, because they were driven by their exasperation with single-use litter. They wanted to create the newest, most innovative, and conveniently-designed reusable bottle AND cup. Officially launched in July 2021, Cupple made waves on Kickstarter mid-pandemic (in September 2020), with overwhelmingly positive feedback: almost 2,000 Cupples were sold in just 30 days.

“The idea for Cupple came from a motivation to fix a problem that was niggling us. We were both carrying a bottle of water, and an empty reusable cup (in case we wanted a cup of tea or a coffee whilst we were in the car (or on the train) on our way to work, the shops, the gym, or out for a dog walk),” said Amanda McDowell and Eve Fry.

“We wanted to invent a product that would replace the two most thrown away everyday items (cups and bottles), – a convenient, sustainable choice for people on the move. We have simply put them together, so there is only one thing to grab in the morning,” they added.

Cupple combines clean modern lines with convenience. The product is non-toxic, BPA-free, and is made from food grade stainless steel (up to 50% recycled). It’s durable, robust, and uncomplicated. Cupple is currently available in three colours: Black Pepper, Sea Green, and Chalk White, – with more options to follow soon.

Costumers can rest assured that no part of their Cupple will harm the earth, as the brand uses recycled cardboard packaging, and they’re fully committed to carbon neutral shipping. The product is ultimately designed to ultimately reduce waste. 

As a UK female-led business making a positive impact, Cupple is a member of 1% For the Planet, and it has committed to donating 1% of all sales revenue per annum to support the Marine Conservation Society, and the Woodland Trust in the brilliant work they do to restore woodlands and champion our oceans.

Amanda McDowell (Cupple’s Head of Finance And Operations) leads on finance, legal, manufacturing, design, and day-to-day operations. Previously, Amanda served as a diplomat, – working for the Foreign Office for over fifteen years, in London, Australia, Kyrgyzstan, Luxembourg, and in Ethiopia. She has a broad experience in project management, negotiating, leadership, and representational roles.

Eve Fry (Cupple’s Head of Sales And marketing) is responsible for managing all outward facing elements of Cupple, including the website, PR, digital marketing, customer service, fulfilment, retail (on-line and off-line), corporate sales, and strategic partnerships. Eve has previously worked in sales, marketing, hospitality, and events, – covering FTSE 250, not-for-profits, and her own start-up.

All components are available to purchase as single items (if you want to add to your Cupple family, or to replace individual parts) from their website, and they can be found in some great retailers, such as in Oliver Bonas.
