Taking the Next Step with Abigail Forsyth

**********************************************************

As the co-founder and managing director of KeepCup, known worldwide for its bright, bold and instantly recognisable reusable cups, Abigail Forsyth is passionate about improving the take-up of sustainable alternatives to disposable and single use items.

Following a successful career as a solicitor at a boutique Melbourne law firm, Abigail and her brother Jamie set up their own chain of cafes across the city. Alarmed by the amount of disposable packaging being wasted, Abigail started her search for a more sustainable and environmentally conscious way to serve food, and the concept of KeepCup soon became a reality.

Since June 2009 there have been over eight million KeepCups sold and users have diverted billions of disposable cups from landfill.

KeepCup has offices and warehousing in the UK and the USA, and 25 distribution partners around the world. While servicing a growing consumer demand in over 65 countries around the world, the business has stayed loyal to its roots with KeepCup HQ based in Melbourne.
