We're so excited to officially be part of the Blue List!
We've joined a global network of over 300 companies that provide sustainable solutions to single-use plastics. Each and every company is working on trying to eliminate unnecessary single-use products because behaviour change is hard. Some of the most challenging transitions for businesses and cafes include takeaway coffee cups, plastic cups, and plastic water bottles.
Despite raising awareness of the issue, over 600 billion disposable coffee cups are currently used each year globally. By the simple nature of these disposable products, takeaway packaging follows the customer out the door so cafe owners have little oversight or opportunity to do something with this waste once it has left. While they can provide compostable options or even return bins for single-use cups, these pathways are often rarely used because it simply isn't...convenient.
We know at Huskee that Reuse always wins and was once the cultural norm. Reusable companies like Huskee are challenging the new norm, and have designed the Opt-in reusable cup exchange program HuskeeSwap to make reusable systems simple and convenient for both customers and businesses. HuskeeSwap enables cafes to transition away from disposable coffee cups, save money, and most importantly save our planet. Both businesses and individuals can take positive action with a truly circular economy solution.
We have partnered with Oceanic Global to amplify our impact and join this growing movement for change. We support this not-for-profit organisation dedicated to creating solutions for businesses to take action on single-use plastics. The Blue List's dynamic offering provides tangible cost-effective solutions, recognition, independent verification, and step-by-step consultation that drives lasting change. We believe in good design to effect change.
Oceanic Global's Blue Standard and efforts inspire us every day to remember that #solutionsexist.
