So lets have a little environmental sustainability talk here…we all love to enjoy our one, two, three maybe four cups of java per day right? I bet you haven’t considered the amount of raw waste generated by all that coffee you consume! Well…sit down and have a listen…during the coffee bean harvest process there is organic material that is discarded called COFFEE HUSK. This organic waste material is produced at the milling stage of coffee production.

(Coffee is the seed of a fruit; husk is the layer of shell around the seed)

Coffee farmers are left with TONNES of this organic material following the coffee production process. The stats below will give you some perspective about how much coffee husk waste is generated each year.

That’s a lot of unwanted waste. BUT according to the developers of the HuskeeCup, waste can be made beautiful. Introducing the HuskeeCup, the reusable, recyclable cup made from discarded coffee husk!

The HuskeeCup has currently raised $93,645 USD on indiegogo.com. Click here to contribute to their coffee sustainability efforts and participate in the #ZeroWaste and #WarOnWaste movement.
