Risks and challenges

Our main challenge is to create a strong community of coffee shops, that help us collect more coffee cups and inform more people about the issues of coffee cup waste. We also want to start to collaborate with big coffee shop companies to address the problem in a larger scale.

Long-lasting design

Thanks to the mycelium our products are very resistant. We also developed a circular system where we can take back our old product to implant it again as raw material in our cycle of production. It give a multiple life to our object and to the cups!

Reusability and recyclability

All of our products are made from coffee cup waste. We are working with the market next to our production site to reuse the old cardboard boxes for all the packaging of our products.

Sustainable materials

Most of our material is made of recycled coffee cups. The other part of the material is made of organic element, like flour or cabbage that we use to add some nutriment to the material in order to make the mycelium grow better.

Environmentally friendly factories

We develop a sustainable process where we reduce the number of machine. We created an ecosystem where we reuse the heat and humidity produce by the mushroom when it grow into our cycle of fabrication

Sustainable fulfillment and distribution

Sustainability is at the heart of the project. We are recycling used coffee cups that we collecte by bike in a 10km radius around our studio. All the organic nutriment that we use have been buy on the market with local farmers. We are involving more and more coffee shop to inform people about the problem of coffee cup waste. We want to keep a sustainable ethic in all the part of our process of fabrication.
