Global sustainable packaging leader BioPak has introduced the Indigenous Art Series BioCups, set to debut for NAIDOC Week 2024.

These cups, initially celebrated as the Turtle Cup among coffee enthusiasts, will feature three distinct designs from local Indigenous Artists: Davinder Hart, Kulka Fahey, and Amy Saunders.

The series will rotate every six months to showcase a diverse array of Indigenous artistic expressions, the firm said in a media release.

Each purchase of an Indigenous Art Series BioCup directly supports CorporateConnect.AB’s pro-bono initiatives, empowering Indigenous youth – an initiative fostering dialogue over coffee.

Artist spotlights

Davinder Hart, originating from Perth and of Bibbulmun/Ngemba descent, draws inspiration from Mother Earth and ancestral wisdom. His artwork, “Sharing Knowledge,” symbolises Indigenous traditions of stewardship and communal learning.

Kulka Fahey, based on Awabakal land with heritage ties to Biripi and Worimi Country, has garnered acclaim for her emotionally resonant, award-winning artworks.

Amy Saunders, Biripi and residing on Darkinjung Land, infuses her art with familial love and cultural pride, capturing the essence of community spirit.

Product details

BioCups are available in both Single Wall Industrially Compostable and Double Wall Home Compostable options, catering to environmentally conscious consumers across sizes ranging from 8oz to 16oz.

Additionally, 2 per cent of sales from the Indigenous Art Series BioCups contribute directly to the Ethan Indigenous IT Cadetship Program.

According to BioPak, this initiative aims to enhance digital literacy and create career opportunities in IT and administrative services for Australian and Torres Strait Islander youth.
