Happy NAIDOC Week! Read our guest blog from Andrea Harms from CorporateConnect.AB. We have been working together for nearly two years and have released a number of cups in partnership, including our popular Indigenous BioCups. Income from The Coffee Cup Initiative has and continues to fund a range of capacity building strategies helping to close the social, economic and health gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the broader Australian community. Andrea talks through some achievements from this year.

The construction of STREAT's new venue in Collingwood, Melbourne is well underway. Once in they will be able to support and train 365 young, disadvantaged, people each year – that's three times more than they can now. We are so proud to be one of their key supporters.

We are constantly looking for improvements – to our product quality, raw materials, processes and service delivery. We are pleased to announce that all our BioCane products just got even better! Better product design. Better manufacturing processes. Better quality sugarcane fibres. Better nesting!
We are inspired by this young eco warrior – Katie from Perth. She recently celebrated her 10th birthday and asked us to supply her with 20 of our 'Save the Cassowary BioCups' for her cassowary-themed birthday party. In lieu of birthday presents she asked for donations for Rainforest Rescue’s Cassowary Conservation Program. The results: 53 rainforest seedlings planted in last month by our very own Director, Richard Fine and his family.
