Drink coffee responsibly from a sustainable ‘coffee cup’ by HuskeeCup

We all know that with coffee production and consumption, also comes wastage (duh), but the wastage begins a lot sooner than the fancy packaging and the end-user's non-recyclable paper cup. We're talking about the waste from discarded coffee husks – and there's a new start-up by the name of HuskeeCup that is aiming to reduce waste from coffee farms by creating reusable (and totally stylish) cups make from coffee husks. This is caffeine-fuelled innovation at its best. more

Future Farms is shaking up the connotations associated with the word hydroponic, creating a range of low-maintenance herb planters that allow users to grow seeds easily. more
