We estimate that the Netherlands alone uses and discards approximately 2,000,0000 (yes 2 million!) disposable cups every day contributing approximately 142,000kgs of CO2. There must be a better way, a way that you- as coffee drinkers- can make a positive societal and environmental impact each time you drink your coffee to-go.
That's why we're working on the Circular Coffee Project, to transform coffee to-go systems with a circular solution, using a cup made from coffee waste. We offer a service to cafes who want to reduce the cost and environmental burden of disposable cups and are in the process of developing a solution that is just as 'think-less' as buying coffee in the morning.
While the Circular Coffee Project solution is still going through development, early testing has been positive and we have already displaced 87 disposable cups- saving an estimated €14 from the cost of purchasing disposables and 6.2kgs of CO2 (Greenhouse Gas Emissions) from their production-use-disposal.
Fighting climate change requires collective action, so wherever you see the Circular Coffee Project or our 'TuGo' cup- remember to "Return - Reward - ReUse" so that together we can make a positive impact and address climate change.
