At a time when the Covid-19 pandemic has cast a cloud over circular consumption culture, a reuseable container service has launched in Jakarta in a bid to put a dent in the Indonesian capital’s waste problem.

Called Cupkita, the new service takes aim at Jakarta’s throwaway culture that sees individual cafés consume between 125 to 1,000 single-use cups in a day in the city of 10 million people. 

The service, which went live a week on 6 July, just after coffeeshops reopened after more than three months of shutdown, can reduce up to 2,100 kilograms of daily waste, according to the service’s founders.
