Reduce. Reuse. Grow. is a sustainability company that’s based in San Luis Obispo, CA, and they’ve developed a new kind of biodegradable coffee cup that has seeds buried within the cup’s exterior.
The cup features seeds that are native to wherever the cup is distributed, and once it’s planted it’ll sprout into flowers or trees. However, even if the cup doesn’t make it into the ground and it ends up in a landfill, it’ll break down into nutrient rich compost over the course of 180 days.
Head after the break for the project video…
