Morning Ritual is a series of biodegradable containers made of coffee grounds and newspaper waste. Inspired by Paola’s childhood memories watching her father sip on Arabic coffee while reading the newspaper, this product draws our attention to the fact that we often generate waste before our day even begins.
After coffee ground waste is collected from local coffee shops, it is mixed with newspaper pulp and a natural binding agent. The mixture is moulded by hand, and the final colour and scent of each item are the result of the various types of coffee used.
