A BioPak and Rainforest Rescue partnership
BioPak has been working with Rainforest Rescue to create a ‘Save the Cassowary’ 8oz single wall BioCup. We worked with the ‘Who Am I’ game to test coffee drinkers’ knowledge on this beautiful and shy creature.
The aim is to raise awareness and funds to help this ancient and endangered bird, which lives only in the Wet Tropics of Queensland. It is a keystone species that plays a vital role in rainforest biodiversity by dispersing seeds and there are thought to be fewer than 1,000 left in the wild. Almost 100 trees and many rainforest animals depend on the Cassowary for their survival, so without them our rainforests will struggle.
BioPak is donating 20% of profits from the Cassowary cup sales to Rainforest Rescue to use in its cassowary conservation initiatives.
The great news is that the Save the Cassowary BioCup went on sale to cafes and coffee outlets on Tuesday 4 March. The initial print run was SOLD OUT within a few hours of release … more have been ordered. So watch this space.
