About this project

Our beautiful wood mugs are chemical-free.
Our beautiful wood mugs are chemical-free.

Begin your day with beautiful, sustainable design.

A warm drink energizes, provides a shared social experience, and an enjoyable daily ritual. At Dryad Coffee, we strive to be part of that experience.

Our mugs, travel mugs, and coffee collars are a welcome addition to any kitchen, workplace, or daily commute.

Perfect for that morning commute!

Our top-quality wood is free from the harmful chemical additives found in most plastic and metal drinkware.

All materials are natural, minimally porous, and dishwasher safe.

Travel mugs for smooth, clean and beautiful on-the-go warmth.

The goal of this campaign is to raise sufficient funds to meet the standards for certification from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), an international organization "established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests." They are a non-governmental and not-for-profit organization created in 1993 to address global deforestation.

FSC certification confirms that a specific area of forest is being managed in line with the organization's principles and criteria.

"With the launch of the SmartWood program in 1989, the Rainforest Alliance developed the world's first global forestry certification program and the first to rely on market forces to conserve forests."

Risks and challenges

In 2013, our team began designing these unique products to enhance an experience that is already a favorite part of our daily ritual. Our prototypes and manufacturing framework were completed in January 2014. Since then, we have worked to identify a provider of sustainable wood that meets FSC standards. Having found a reliable source in the Pacific Northwest, we are preparing our application for FSC certification.

Following successful funding through Kickstarter, we will begin production here in Texas. Our first order of wood will arrive in April, while we finish out the workshop. We expect to begin running a regular production schedule in May, with deliveries beginning in June.

We encourage you to learn more about the Forest Stewardship Council and the Rainforest Alliance! Thank you for your support.
