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.

Paying rent sucks, especially if you’re living in Silicon Valley, where the average property rent amounts to almost $4000 a month. This is why single mom Nicole Jones had to leave her apartment and live in a converted garage in suburban San Mateo, where she shells out $1000 a month. Her tiny home has a central space that serves as her living room, bedroom, kitchen and dining room. There’s a stand-up shower and toilet at the back.

The space is very small compared to the standard living space that most Americans go for. “There's no playing sports or little soccer games down the hallway, because this is it. What you see is what you get," Nicole reveals in a CNN interview. 

Check out the photos to see how she lives inside her converted home.

Although aquarium sites pretty much feature the same animal kingdom adventures, Seattle Aquarium, partner of Giant Pacific Octopus found in the Puget Sound, has definitely set the trend as its “special performer”, giant octopus (also known Ink) tries to unleash itself from a glass display.

It was a thrilling escapade to be witnessed by “spectators” but not so much as soon as OP here almost kissed the lips of the glass making the kids go wary. Seattle Aquarium’s Tim Kuniholm however defended in Q13 FOX News that the “video has been blown out of proportion” adding, “It’s a new octopus 'Ink' in a new exhibit exploring his boundaries.”

Luckily, one of the staff was brave enough to return Ink back where he belongs. “In the video that’s been shared by the public… it’s one of our staff members helping Ink bank into his exhibit after exploring the edge, ” said Seattle Aquarium’s Tim Kuniholm

Many of us love to sing, be it in the shower, in karaokes and even in the car during long travels or when you're stuck in a heavy and stressful traffic. Singing is some sort of a therapy that lightens up the mood and eases even the roughest days.

I can't forget how happy I was, laughing with my friends while singing and dancing to the tune of 'Build Me Up Buttercup' so I can very well understand the people's reaction to this happy man here.

YouTube sensation TJ Smith is known for belting out songs in his car on the highway or his so-called 'Highway Sing-alongs.' Aside from his good looks, his carefree spirit and fun vibes made people admire him even more. Singing his most popular hit and sing-along 'Build Me Up Buttercup,' this video is so entertaining and fun that some people can't even help but join him in singing while others wave and smile. If you're having a bad day, some singing and a help from this guy can really perk you up.
