The conceptual 'Jugi' coffee waste collection system is a kitchen appliance solution that would work to make use of coffee grounds and keep them out of the landfill. The device maintains a discreet design that would work by being placed on a countertop and offer coffee drinkers with a dedicated spot to store grounds once they have been used. The unit would communicate with the company to let them know when it is full to collect the grounds and forward them onto organizations that can make use of them.
The conceptual 'Jugi' coffee waste collection system is the design work of Pelin Bilgin and could also be used in small cafes or establishments to help them divert waste products to a good cause.
