I first chanced upon Huskee coffee cups a few months ago and fuck me if it wasn’t the coolest idea I had ever seen.
I bought one, immediately. Use it every day. Carry it everywhere.
Yes, I have been guilty of rocking up to a café with day-old flat white scum caked around the lid and whatever cold dregs of yesterday morning’s wake-up juice that didn’t soak the inside of my backpack sluicing around inside the immensely aesthetically satisfying mould of the cup.
Yes, I have wiped said beautifully smooth and morally comforting cup clean with the hem of my standard ageing Gen X issue Deus Ex Machina t-shirt whilst standing in the gutter in the rain outside the car outside the café.
Yes, I have begged hipster barista to “maybe just give it a bit of a rinse for me”, weathering a withering gaze that is one part disgusted and three parts judgy.
Fuck you, Jacques, I’m saving the goddamn planet.
And you can too. One small change at a time, starting with your very own Huskee coffee cup.
They’re actually made from recycled coffee bean husks, which is just genius, don’t you think? That’s making a dent in the 1.7 million tonnes of coffee husk waste produced every year, and that’s brilliant.
Also means they’re BPA free, and you can stick them in the dishwasher. They’re also beautifully designed. Award-winningly so, in fact.
But most importantly, they’re reusable.
Did you know we make, drink from, and chuck out 16 billion takeaway coffee cups every year?
Just read that again, please. Sixteen Billion. Can you imagine? I feel sick inside, just thinking about that.
2.7 million cups get chucked in the bin EVERY DAY in Australia. Every day. And they’re not recyclable - most of the paper cups are lined with polyethylene.
It was my new year’s resolution to quit takeaway coffee cups for 2019, and I have only ever accidentally used one once.
Yes, many times I’ve forgotten my cup. Not so much anymore. It’s habit now, leaving the house. Keys, wallet, phone, Huskee.
Those times I did forget, I’ve had to walk away from a coffee, or sit the fuck down for five minutes and drink my damn coffee. It’s nice. It’s peaceful.
This is one small, beautiful change you can make in your life, to help our planet.
Get yourself a couple, and buy one for everyone you know who loves coffee. Or tea for that matter. Or hot chocolate. Or cold chocolate. Or turmeric chai lattes. (Maybe not for them. You don’t actually want them as friends.)
If you can’t afford to, then just get yourself one, treasure it, and share this link with your friends and family so they can buy one for themselves.
We’re so grateful to Saxon and the Huskee team for having made this near-perfect thing, and we’re so grateful to you for joining us in choosing to live more consciously, more sustainably.Good for the planet. Good for you!
