Embracing B Corp Month: This Way Forward with Huskee

Embracing B Corp Month: This Way Forward with Huskee

Posted by Huskee on 23rd Feb 2024

It's that time of year again – B Corp Month is here, and we're ready to celebrate all things purpose-driven and planet-positive. So grab your  HuskeeCup, kick off those eco-friendly shoes, and let's dive into the inspiring world of B Corps! At Huskee, the path to B Corp certification wasn't just a checklist. It was a pledge, a pact, and a promise to keep pushing for planet-positive products and practices. This month is about celebrating where we've been but, more importantly, where we're headed.

What We Have Achieved

First things first – what exactly are B Corps? Well, they're not your average run-of-the-mill businesses. B Corps are a special breed of companies that have made a rock-solid commitment to using business as a force for good. Yep, you heard that right – they're on a mission to balance profit with purpose, putting people and the planet on an equal pedestal with profits. It's like the Avengers of the business world, but instead of fighting supervillains, they're tackling social and environmental challenges head-on! We're all in on redefining the coffee industry by championing eco-friendly and socially responsible practices.

Our innovative product ranges include the Original HuskeeCup, featuring discarded coffee husks, as well as HuskeeRenew and HuskeeSteel, both made from recycled materials, reducing disposable coffee cup usage. Plus, our programs, HuskeeSwap and HuskeeLoop, help cut down on disposable coffee cup waste and ensure proper recycling of our end-of-life products.

Our Future

Our HuskeeLoop program is on a mission to collect 90% of everything we produce and repurpose them into new products such as our Dog Bowl, which is made from 100% recycled HuskeeCups. We've already collected over 1000 end-of-life HuskeeCups from our cafes and customers, diverting them from landfills and turning them into amazing new products. This circular approach is at the heart of our commitment to sustainability. 

We're actively redefining coffee culture and crafting products that reduce single-use coffee cup waste while elevating the coffee experience. We're continually improving and expanding our programs to ensure they stay up-to-date with sustainable practices. 

Our ongoing mission is to spearhead programs that inspire and enable the global community to embrace a waste-free lifestyle. We're not just designing products; we're shaping a movement—a movement that solves these problems while staying true to our sustainability principles and empowering change. 

B Corp recertification rolls around every 3 years, and we've just sent in our submission at Huskee. Stay tuned because we can't wait to share the results with you soon.
