Environmental protection

You can see trash cans spilling over due to the garbage created by disposable cups, on a daily basis, especially in urban areas. Recently this issue has reached the media and even politics, because the ever-growing garbage piles can hardly be handled anymore. With this sleeve you can take the first or already the second step towards reducing the garbage.

Not only disposable cups can be carried with this sleeve, also reusable cups. These can be made of ceramics, plastics, porcelain, metal, glas or any other material.

The founder

marco

Marco Graeber was born in 1984 in Pasewalk, Germany. Since then he has moved to 18 different places within and outside of Germany. He is currently living in Berlin Neukoelln. But not only had his home changed a lot. With 32 different occupations he has also gotten to know various facets of work life. One of these was as a Barista during his high school and college years. Back then the foundation for this idea was created. A severe injury made an athletic career impossible which finally led to him studying business in Berlin. During his studies he tinkered with the idea of pursuing an apprenticeship as a carpenter at the same time. He did not want to lose touch with his craftsmanship. Financing this was impossible though. Since 2012 he has been working as an IT-Consultant, first with IBM and then with KPMG. With this sleeve he took a chance and paved the way to being able to follow his craftsmanship again.

During a long-term project in Sweden he saw his manager with a coffee-to-go on a daily basis. The year advanced and as Christmas approached a present had to be found for his manager. In his usual manner he wanted to create something handmade. Here the idea of making a reusable sleeve came up, an item which she used on a daily basis and which she could always bring along with her. After a few tries the first serious prototype was created. He liked the idea so much that he wanted to pursue it further. After all his manager was not the only one who could make use of this sleeve. When he handed the present over to his manager he, with a heavy heart, asked her to not use it, so he could evolve this idea. Now, after three years and a pending patent she was able to use it for the first time in November 2015.

The sleeve you see today has undergone many adjustments and tests and is far more sophisticated than the one created in December 2012.
