Today I found some amazing cups that would fit perfectly into The Noodle bar by Iteurm Foods.
These are Huskee Cups. They are a brilliant coffee cup that is made from the husks of the coffee been itself!
“Coffee husk is an organic waste material that’s produced at the milling stage of coffee production. By purchasing HuskeeCup, you are helping to recycle hundreds of tonnes of waste material from the production of coffee.”
This is the type of thinking and products that Iterum Foods admires and wants to bring in as part of our zero waste initiative. Each day we look for ways to reduce waste around restaurants and this is a perfect example. The best part about these cups is the company themselves have put together what they call Huskee swap. An idea they sum up quite nicely.
To solve this problem, we need a global community of cafes and coffee drinkers who swap and exchange a single cup.
We need HuskeeSwap.”
This is actually an idea we at Iterum were already going to put in place with out own coffee cups. Buy a reusable coffee mug once, then everytime you come back return it for a clean one and leave your dirty.
This would hopefully eliminate the need for single use coffee cups.
