Free coffee? Inside the #CarryTheCup coffee pop up

We hope you enjoyed the Wakey Juice in our last #CarrytheCup Coffee Pop up at K11 MUSEA, we are tickled to see people bringing their reusable cups to the booth! After the great success of the coffee pop up last month, #CarrytheCup will be back in the Green Space of Lush’s First-in-Asia Naked Shop.

From 4th to 24th October, the 21-day #CarrytheCup Coffee Pop Up hope to help locals and visitors to form a habit of bringing their reusable cups instead of ditching single-use paper cups. Lush, in collaboration with FAIRTASTE and Oatly, believe that we could always do more. In the upcoming 21 days, we hope the coffee pop up can bring you an inspiration to go green, embrace new habit and form new behaviour.

Lush Studio Manager Michael O’Brien explains: “Reducing our reliance on plastic has been at the forefront of Lush’s innovations for the last 23 years. Beyond cosmetics, there are habits we can break and simple changes we can make to reduce or remove single-use plastic from our lives. We want to invite locals and visitors inside for a free cup of coffee (or tea) and an informative discussion on how to ditch the single-use coffee cup, and learn to #CarrytheCup.”

According to Smiley Planet, 2.1 million cups are thrown away every day in Hong Kong, and no recycling facilities are able to recycle the takeaway cups due to the plastic coatings. That’s a whole lot of unnecessary waste going straight to landfill and causing great damage to the environment. The simple act of swapping your takeaway cup for a reusable one instead could make a big difference to the environment. In collaboration with rCUP, Lush presents Lush rCUP, the world's first reusable coffee cup made from 6 used paper cups - to help recycle and reduce waste.

And this isn’t the only way Lush is making a difference to the coffee culture that’s ruining our environment. In 2017, Lush launched the Bath Oil Box, a biodegradable box made from recycled coffee cups. The innovative solution was created in collaboration with James Cropper 3D Products and is now available in Lush shops nationwide and from lush.co.uk. You can see how they are made here.
