Rebecca Veksler - Co-Founder of Sol Cups
Hello, inspo! When she was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, Rebecca overhauled her lifestyle – and started doing serious research about the harmful use of plastics both on the human body and environment. At the time, she was also working as a personal trainer and now that plastic was out, she was struggling to transport her much-needed coffee and tea to the gym. She had a lightbulb moment.
She designed Sol Cups, a range of glass, reusable, chemical-free cups that changed the game for on-the-go coffee drinkers are available in thousands of retail stores! They keep the heat in and the toxins out, and they’re the most eco-chic way to cut down on waste. What’s more, she chose hand blown glass because it has a sustainable manufacturing process, which suits her plastic-free mission to a tee.
‘Sol’ means ‘sun’ in Spanish, and the cups have a signature zig zag pattern that looks like ocean waves. In perfect alignment with Rebecca’s bright and bubbly personality, they make you happy just looking at them – which we have a feeling was one of her aims!
Rebecca is also the youngest board member and Vice President of the Bondi & Districts Chamber of Commerce.
