World’s first coffee cup that has native seeds embedded within the material, can be used for reforestation in your local communities.
“Reduce. Reuse. Grow ” an inventive company in California, USA, designed a cup of coffee that is not only biodegradable and environmentally friendly, but it also contains seeds, so that when you throw it can be planted and blossomed!
Where does our trash actually go? With our current waste stream, as consumers none of us really know. In America we discard over 146 billion cups from coffee consumption annually. Even when we think we are recycling and doing a good deed, the paper itself within these products can only be reused 2-3x before the fibers are unusable and discarded into local landfills without consumer’s knowing. It is time to consumer smarter…
“We have developed a post consumer paper based cup which will be able to extract over 1 ton of CO2 out of the atmosphere annually once planted. We have taken those fibers from local recycling centers, which would usually be too rough to implement back into a packaging product, and created a cup that we are happy to truly name the most eco friendly disposable coffee cup. If you decide to throw away and not plant, no problem. The cup is compost certified and will be able to biodegrade within 180 days leaving the seeds and cup itself to turn into nutrients for other plants to enjoy! ”
