MUG / sustainable cosmetic product


A cup of coffee will energize your mind and body. However the coffee grounds which are reminded after brewing coffee can seriously affect environment.
MUG is an eco-friendly scrub made of coffee grounds. The gel cream is used for facial scrub and the case is hard scrub for body. In addition the package is made of strawboard and the ink is replaced with coffee.
MUG joined with Starbucks, manufacturing the limited number of product using the new coffee grounds only. It sells at Starbucks as shop in shop.
