By Joyce.


Currently, in China, many foreign brands dominate the market for sustainable products. But recently many local brands have launched their own products to latch on to consumers' growing awareness. Take a look at these 6 Chinese brands that, with their home-field advantage, are heralding in a nationwide green revolution. 虽然目前国内的环保产品大多数来自于外国品牌,但是近几年,跟着增长的意识和全球环保趋势,也成立了许多国内环保品牌。来看看这6个国产品牌是怎么掀起了一场绿色革命。

Kafftec

For the many people who sustain themselves on coffee, little thought is given to what happens to the coffee grounds after discarding them. Every day, 40,000 tons of coffee grounds are disposed of in landfills, creating methane, a greenhouse gas that captures heat roughly 30 times higher than carbon dioxide. Other than keeping the grounds to exfoliate your skin or use as compost for your garden, Kafftec is offering an alternative. Kafftec reuses coffee grounds to make thermos, notebooks, and even chairs. But it doesn't end there — they vow to serve both companies and nature by providing sustainable solutions through recycling and material engineering. 很多人都靠咖啡续命,但有没有想过扔完咖啡渣的后果?每天,4万吨咖啡残渣会被填埋,腐烂过程中释放大量的甲烷(一种比二氧化碳吸收热量多30倍的温室气体)。咖法将这些咖啡渣制作成水壶、笔记本甚至椅子,但是咖法还有更长远的使命:通过回收和材料工程,咖法希望使消费产生的废料得到在利用。
