A Cup Made from Pure Rice Husk?!

When the mornings are bitter and you have to brace yourself for getting into a freezing cold car all you need is a hot drink to warm you up… but have you ever tried driving with an open mug in the car?! If you haven’t I wouldn’t advise it as I have regretted it previously!!  Olpro have a fantastic range of Husk created products from baby cups to mugs! I was thrilled when we were sent the Husk Café Mug with handle as it meant those cold mornings were not such a problem for me anymore!

The mug is made from strong and durable Husk and is Eco friendly. The product is 1.27 times harder than glass which with threenager and her strops that’s probably a good thing!!! The mug can be used for hot and cold drinks and is lightweight, microwavable and freezer safe. It comes in 6 colour options- Blue, Yellow, Coffee, Green, Orange and pink. Husk itself is made from rice husk (the little shell rice comes in!). They are eco-friendly, biodegradable and does not contain any harmful substances at all. Rice husk is an agricultural waste. Annually, the world’s rice production is approximately 500 million tons. Of this, the ratio of rice husk to rice is approximately 1:4, which is equivalent to about 125 million tons of rice husks produced each year. What I really love about Husk is the fact is has antibacterial properties as the high density with no pores prevents bacteria and alongside the natural antibacterial properties of Husk means an extremely safe mug which is great in the winter with all the germs going around!

The mug is appealing to the eye and can be purchased from – and is currently on sale for £3.50 with free delivery which is a great price for a really great mug!
