We are excited to announce that we have raised a round of funding of $1.7mm. While we have grown considerably since launching our eco-friendly Earth Cups in April 2021, this capital will be fundamental to our long-term scaling efforts. The funds will primarily be allocated to expanding our operations in the United States, research and development into new products and sustainable materials, our efforts to streamline the cup-purchasing model for college students, and building out our team. 1/26/2022

We’re back to give our fans and followers a long-awaited progress update. There’s some pretty amazing stuff we have been working on and we are so excited to share everything with you. 7/18/2021

Welcome to the Earth Caps Blog, a direct forum for all things Earth Caps––written by co-Founders Michael and Peter.
