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.

My belief that TeeFury is looking to take over the world is slowly coming to fruition. First t-shirts, then shoes, and now? Coffee mugs.

And not just any old mugs –– but mugs about our incessant need/craving/desire for all things hot and caffeinated.

The mugs are part of their “Caff-Fiends Collection” and, so far, the designs are pretty awesome. The mugs also include matching shirts.

Check out more designs after the break.

Ever felt the urge to go to your nearest convenience store and buy up all the non-alcoholic drinks so you could mix them all together and make one massively disgusting concoction? Yeah, I haven’t either. But YouTuber Hajime did just that spending 56,365 yen (US$475) in the process.

He named the resulting drink “infinity coffee,” and it includes a blend of everything from milk-based drinks, canned coffees and soda to fruit juices, yogurt drinks and energy drinks.

Then he drank it. It wasn’t pretty. Find out what happened in the video after the break…

KFC recently announced that they will be offering Seattle’s Best coffee at its UK locations, and decided to take the launch a step further by pouring the brew into specially designed edible cups.

The chain teamed up with food scientists at The Robin Collective to create the ice cream cone-inspired vessel, dubbed “Scoff-ee Cup”, which is made from a biscuit wrapped in sugar paper and lined with a layer of white chocolate. Over time, the cup will soften to the point where it melts in your mouth.

The cups will also be enhanced with questionable “mood improving aromas”, such as “coconut sun cream”, “freshly cut grass” and “wild flowers” which are intended to “evoke the positive memories we associate with warm weather, sunshine and summer holidays.”

With names like “Kentucky Fried Chicken” and “Seattle’s Best Coffee”, you’d think the states would be the perfect place to debut such an item – but for the time being they will only be offered at a limited number of locations around the UK.

Check out some additional pics after the jump.

DyDo-coffee-drink-Nintendo

Two major Japanese companies are celebrating huge birthdays this year. For their 40th anniversary,  DyDo Drinco is teaming up with Nintendo to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of Super Mario Bros with two very special drinks. The coffee blend drinks look like warp pipes and each house a different character icon figure along with a special 3-panel leaflet.

This is part awesome company mash-up and part wonderful nostalgia for super fans. Also, really what’s better than coffee and classic video games?

There are eight varieties in total: Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Princess Peach, Goomba, Koopa Troopa, Toad, and Lakitu.

According to Rocket News 24:

The figures will be attached to cans of DyDo Blend – Blend Coffee, a light roast coffee that uses beans from five countries, and DyDo Blend – Demitasse Coffee, another long-selling hit with a richer coffee flavor (this type includes milk). The latter is brewed with premium coffee beans that are selected from five different Central and South American countries, and it uses 1.5 times more beans per drink than the industry standard. Both drinks retail for 115 yen (US$0.96).

We’ve all procrastinated at times and it’s easy to get distracted or even sidetrack yourself deliberately. Let’s face it, art and expression can be a lot of work. Still, we all need to find ways to remind ourselves to get back to the job at hand.

That’s where these “motivational” mugs come in handy. Not only will they hold whatever caffeinated beverage you hold dear, but they’ll flat out tell you to f*cking get on with your creative process.

They come in a full swearing version and a more PG version, but they all make themselves perfectly clear.

Maybe someone should send one of these to George R.R. Martin.
