A creative company in California called Reduce. Reuse. Grow has designed a coffee cup that is not only biodegradable, but even has seeds in its walls so that it can be planted and grown!
The cups, which are currently part of a Kickstarter campaign, will have seeds embedded in their walls based on their locations. Participating stores will encourage people to plant the cups themselves or to return them to be planted by the company.
400 million cups of coffee are consumed every day in America and usually thrown straight into the trash.
You can learn more about this incredible plan to replace ordinary coffee cups with biodegradable ones on the project’s website. You can also currently help fund this ambitious and environmentally smart project on Kickstarter.
