Blue Eyed Sun to distribute BambooCup in the UK
Blue Eyed Sun has recently signed a distribution deal with design-led German company Chic Mic. The agreement sees the greeting card publisher branching out to distribute the BambooCup, SlideCup and BambooFriends brands of lifestyle giftware in the UK.
BambooCup is a stylish range of eco-friendly, reusable coffee cups, which proved to be popular with buyers during a recent appearance at Spring Fair.
This positive sign from UK retail professionals is not only a good sign for the Blue Eyed Sun/Chic Mic partnership but also suggests that demand for eco-friendly products is set to continue.
Jeremy Corner, MD, Blue Eyed Sun and incoming Chairman of the Giftware Association, commented…
“We have been working with Chic Mic for several years in Germany and Austria, where they distribute Blue Eyed Sun’s handmade greeting cards to hundreds of stores. Their BambooCup stand at Spring Fair was mobbed with retailers who were quick to recognise the fast growing product trend in 2018 for sustainable eco solutions to the problem of single use plastics. We are excited to have come on board as the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor for these fantastic products.”
Reducing Waste & Looking Good
BambooCup is designed to reduce the 2.5 billion plastic lined single-use cups which are wasted each year. Made from sustainable, fast-growing bamboo fibre and tested to the highest standards, BambooCup offers a long-lasting and tactile alternative to throwaway cups.
The collection currently has over 50 contemporary designs, offering consumers a chance to move away from dull plastic cups and inject a little of their own personality into their coffee routine.
Each BambooCup includes a patented, lockable lid made from bamboo and a thermal sleeve. Dishwasher safe, odour free and taste neutral, the BambooCup is designed to be more than the pretty, fashionable option. These reusable cups offer a practical solution for keeping your favourite beverage warm while confronting an ever-present environmental issue.
For retailers, BambooCup is available with point of sale options suitable for a variety of shop spaces, including a 96 pocket floor stand and a 36 pocket countertop stand.
The launch of BambooCup in the UK is set to be the first of many exciting Chic Mic products that Blue Eyed Sun will be introducing to the UK trade scene; keep your eyes peeled for news on more products launching in the coming months.
