The global human population has grown from 2 billion in 1927 to 7.6 billion in 2017. The growth is expected to continue as estimations for the future put the total population to 11.2 billion by the year 2100. This growth along with the rapid urbanization increases the demand for natural resources needed by the people leading to increment in agriculture production.
Growing the agriculture production, however, leads to the growth of agro-waste. For example, the processing of coffee is one huge agro-waste generator in the form of coffee husk and pulp. To minimize the negative effects of producing that much agro-waste, experts from different fields look for alternative ways to use the waste.
The founders of HuskeeCup have created a product that puts to use the coffee-generated agro-waste by creating durable, reusable cup made from coffee husk. It is not just sustainable but also keeps your coffee hotter for longer.
Created from discarded coffee husk, HuskeeCup stands out with its signature design. The cups come in different sizes and are perfect not only for home use but also for coffee shops. HuskeeCups are crack resistance and dishwasher-friendly.
On their way to making waste beautiful, the founders of the company run a crowdfunding campaign that was 568% funded on July 27, 2017, with $108,534 USD total funds raised.
HuskeeCup is a great example of solving a problem that nobody else is addressing by introducing an innovative, beautiful, and environmentally and social-friendly product that people really can use.
