These Coffee Cups Will Grow Into Trees When Thrown Away.

With over 400 million cups of coffee being sipped everyday in America, a creative company based in California had the clever idea of upcycling  disposable coffee cups.

Reduce. Reuse. Grow, an environmental organisation, will be creating biodegradable cups that will decompose within 180 days. Of course, that idea is nothing new so they took upcycling to the next level by embedding seeds into the disposable cups which will eventually turn into trees or native flowers.

Users of the coffee cups have two options. They can either plant the cup themselves or put it in a bin inside the coffee shops. The organisation would collect and eventually distribute it in  communities in need of reforestation.

In addition, the organisation also came up with the brilliant idea of placing seeds native to the region where the coffee cups are located. For instance, coffee cups in California will be containing seeds of poppy flowers and redwood trees.

Currently, these plantable coffee cups need funding on Kickstarter.

Check out the world’s first plantable coffee cup.
