Andrew Brooks – inventor of pokito. Andrew is passionate about serving up a practical, reusable alternative to the terrible waste caused by disposable cups. He had his light bulb moment while fishing off the west coast of Canada in the summer of 2006. He saw a whole mountain stripped of its pine forest destined for the nearby paper mills. He later discovered that most of this paper wasn’t even recycled and began to wonder if there was a better way. It took a while and more than a little ingenuity before pokito came to life. After sketching out his ideas in 2012, he took them to a team of industrial designers who gradually evolved the technical drawings into a working prototype. Over the next few years, many aspects of the design and production were refined to make it practical and safe to use. British engineers tested countless prototypes, experimented with numerous types of materials and made many minor adjustments to get it right. A concertina travel cup for today's busy life. Reusable and it concertinas into three sizes. It packs away so you can just pop it into your bag or coat pocket.
