Sam is a recent graduate from the University of Queensland, Australia. It was here that he was exposed to Australia’s green culture, and this was what gave him the inspiration and motivation to start with this project.
Sam came up with the concept of a plastic-free reusable bubble tea cup after returning home to Malaysia in 2019. It didn’t take him long to realise that bubble tea is loved by many. As bubble tea businesses continue to grow, the amount of single-use plastic waste that they produce also increases.
OneCup was founded in the hope of reducing negative environmental impacts in both Malaysia, as well as the rest of the world.
