The inspiration for Caye Life came after our Founder, Sarah, spent time travelling overseas and found herself face to face with the negative effects of single-use plastics. In Caye Caulker, Belize, she noticed an incredible amount of rubbish spoiling an otherwise pristine island and coastline. Then and there she decided to be part of a change for the health of the planet.
Single-use plastics were at the top of Sarah's hit list, so she designed a range of reusable products that would motivate people to reuse simply because they worked well and looked good!
Caye Life was born; starting with a range of insulated water bottles and expanding to reusable coffee cups; two items that can make a huge difference if used regularly.
When we consider a sustainable future, single-use plastic has to be one of the fastest growing environmental issues that we face today. At Caye Life, we want to contribute to a change, and have decided to address some of the most commonly used everyday items.
Our design ethos is keep it simple. We are inspired by minimal design and with a focus on functionality.
Our goal is for every sip to be a pleasure, which is why both our cups and bottles are made from premium, double-walled, food-grade, stainless steel. This means that your drinks stay their optimum temperature and taste how they are intended to taste.
Our coffee cups are designed with a thin lip to drink from, which makes for a much more comfortable sip as well as no more spilled coffee down the front of your shirt. The matte finish is the final signature feature, which adds a soothing sensory feeling in your hand - the matte finish also means they are easy to wash - woo!
Sustainability is at the core of everything we do, and we aim to run our business with the smallest footprint possible. We ship the majority of our orders with the carbon neutral shipping company, Sendle and use only reusable, recyclable or compostable packing materials (see more on our Shipping page).
We’ve worked hard on this and continually look at ways we can do better; including working with our manufacturer to use less packing materials. If you have any suggestions on how we can improve our sustainability practices, please let us know!
