PHOENIX — Red cups aren't just made for beer pong anymore. Red Cup Living has taken them to a whole new level with reusable designs made specifically for wine, margaritas, cocktails and coffee.
The company was created when the husband-and-wife founders started having "patio parties" to bring the neighborhood together and the two realized there was a need for reusable plastic cups that could help people connect. The four new designs — a 14-oz. wine cup, 15-oz. margarita cup, 12-oz. cocktail cup and 12-oz. stoneware coffee mug — serve as an eco-friendly option that can be used for outdoor events, such as barbecues, tailgating or relaxing on the beach.
"Red Cup Living embodies the very spirit of the red cup — it's all about grabbing a moment in our busy lives to have fun and connect with others. We use this spirit to inspire family, friends and neighbors to create good times and great memories," said Michael Romley, CEO and founder of Red Cup Living.
Each cup is made with high-quality, break-resistant, double-wall ABS plastic; is BPA- and phthalates-free and FDA-approved; and is dishwasher-safe.
The new products will be showcased at the International Housewares Association show on March 2 to 5 in Chicago at booth S1790, and they join the original lineup that includes an 18-oz. icon cup, 32-oz. icon XL cup, 8-oz. wine cup, 2-oz. shooter cup, magnetic bottle opener, hip apparel, hats and accessories.
