Named after the country of Ethiopia, Ethio brings you quality drinkware made from recycled materials. Rather than sending coffee grounds to landfills, we use these otherwise wasted resources to make products you can use and enjoy every day.
Giving Coffee Grounds a New Life
In the United States alone, 50 billion paper cups are dumped into landfills every year. In fact, to accommodate 50 billion coffee cups, you would need approximately 22.5 Empire State Buildings!
Our solution? Reusable coffee cups made with coffee grounds.
The inside of our cups feature a single-walled 304 stainless steel body to keep your drinks hot, while the outside is coated with recycled coffee ground material to keep your hands safe.
As the first brand ever to use coffee grounds as the coating for stainless steel cups, our to-go cups are stylish and a great alternative to disposable coffee cups.
Turning Coffee Grounds into Mugs
Recycling coffee grounds is becoming more valued today with people becoming more environmentally aware. Turning them into sustainable materials is beneficial to both the economy and the planet.
Used grounds are collected and transported to the production location. There, the grounds are dehydrated and preserved. The material is then used to form raw materials, such as PLA, and coffee grounds. These raw materials can be used to make things like cups, tables and chairs.
And there you have it! Turning coffee waste into biodegradable and sustainable products limit its devastating impact on the environment.
