Statistics show that a major coffee brand in Hong Kong alone produces 5,000 tonnes of coffee grounds and bakery wastes per year. If not recycled, coffee grounds will largely end up in landfills.
By reimagining the purpose of coffee grounds to produce home-grown mushroom boxes, we will recycle and reduce the burden of coffee grounds on the landfill, thus a win to the general environment. From Grounds to Crops is more than a green project, we are a social innovation start up to support the autistic community by creating new markets and job opportunities for them in the longer run.
Please support our crowdfunding exercise on FringeBacker to raise HK$120,000 in the next two months to kickstart this project.
