Innocent Packaging has used their latest project to support mental health charity I Am Hope.

Illustrated by local Kiwi artists, the coffee cups double as ‘cups of conversation’, with each design made to generate awareness and encourage regular conversation about mental health with friends, colleagues and strangers.

“Right now, three families lose a loved one to suicide every two days in New Zealand,” says Innocent Packaging.

“These figures can no longer be ignored or swept under the carpet by those who champion the ‘stay silent on suicide’ mantra currently in effect across Aotearoa.

“Conversations about mental health should be as common as your daily coffee routine.”

Available in two sizes – 8oz and 120z – the cups are made from PLA molecules that are derived from corn sugar instead of from fossil fuels, as well as paper that can be recycled or composted.
