How to Get into the Habit of Using Reusables: Introducing HuskeeSwap

Posted by Huskee on 8th Sep 2023

At Huskee, we understand that coffee isn't just a drink – it's a way of life. And with that lifestyle comes a responsibility to protect our planet and embrace sustainable practices. That’s why we created HuskeeSwap, a cup exchange program designed to transform our coffee culture and inspire individuals to make more sustainable choices. 

With HuskeeSwap, we're empowering both coffee lovers and cafe owners around the world to take ownership of their environmental impact by adopting a reusable coffee cup system. By choosing to participate in HuskeeSwap, you're making a meaningful step towards reducing waste and living more sustainably. 

Join us in embracing sustainable practices and revolutionising our coffee culture with HuskeeSwap. Let's make a difference, one cup at a time.

Why Reusables?

The urgency of embracing reusable coffee cups becomes evident when we confront the alarming waste problem caused by single-use cups. For instance, in the UK alone, an astonishing 7 million cups of coffee are consumed daily, resulting in a staggering annual waste of approximately 30,000 tonnes of paper cup waste. Shockingly, less than 1 in 400 cups are recycled, most ending up in landfills, contributing to more waste that poses severe threats to the environment and human well-being. 

By transitioning to reusable coffee cups, we can effectively disrupt this and create a path towards sustainability. Not only does the adoption of reusables curtail the yearly waste production, but it also alleviates the burden on forest resources exploited for paper cup manufacturing. 

Choosing to use reusable coffee cups is more than just a personal responsibility – it's a powerful step towards transformative change on a global scale. When we make the conscious choice to embrace sustainability, we come together to build a better future for our planet and generations to come. By adopting reusable cups like HuskeeCup, we take an active role in reducing waste and protecting our ecosystem. We become part of a community that values the environment and appreciates the impact we can make when we work together towards a common goal.

The HuskeeSwap Solution

HuskeeSwap is a unique solution that encourages the use of reusable cups. It's a simple and effective way to positively impact the environment while enjoying your daily coffee. 

To join HuskeeCup, all you need to do is purchase a HuskeeCup from our Shop or a participating HuskeeSwap cafe. It’s a durable, stylish, and eco-friendly coffee cup made from coffee husk waste. 

HuskeeCup offers more than just a sustainable solution for coffee enthusiasts; it also comes in different sizes, up to 16oz, to cater to different drink preferences. 

Additionally, the accompanying app, available on iOS & Android, provides numerous benefits, including digital loyalty cards. HuskeeCup's innovative design makes it easier for cafes to manage their inventory and streamlines the office coffee run process, ensuring a hassle-free experience for everyone involved. 

But the real magic happens when you finish your coffee. Instead of washing your HuskeeCup, you swap your cup at any participating café. They'll exchange it for a clean one when you order a coffee, and your used cup will be commercially cleaned and put back into the swap system.
