The World's First Plantable Coffee Cup
There’s a really cool project over at Kickstarter that’s been funded and has 43 hours to go we think you should know about especially if you live in California. It’s the first plantable coffee cup that has native seeds embedded within the material to be used for reforestation in local communities. The company has 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. And even if you decide to throw away and not plant, the cup it's 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!
Here’s how it works:
- The consumer drinks their coffee from the coffee shop. If they choose to take the cup with them, they can plant it in several scenarios based off of the seed variety embedded within the cup.
- The seed variety is displayed on the front of their cup as well as planting instructions on the bottom of the cup.
- Unravel the cup, soak in water for 5 minutes and watch it grow.
