It’s no more a secret that we have a HUGE trash problem throughout the globe. To this cause, an eco-friendly company from far away California is working out a difference by inventing something cool for all caffeine fanatics! A new company with the name- Reduce. Reuse. Grow., and based outside San Louis Obispo just invented the world’s first plantable coffee cup! Once the seeds which are already embedded around the cup are planted, they germinate in the ground to bring life out of a worthless old coffee cup. This company plans to raise fund that will be substantial to make these awesome cups that grow into trees a accessible at every coffee shop closer to you. The coffee cups are to be made depending on location, such that each will have in it the native seeds served in that area. The idea is to make sure you have your coffee cup flourishing in your yard.
Plant your coffee cup is far too easy, as you just unravel the new coffee cup and put in water to soak for 5 minutes. After this, get dressed to your garden with your gloves on to plant your soaked cup and watch it grow. Being a consumer made us producing so much waste. Imagine for a moment all the trash created in your home, now simply multiply this by the entire community beginning from your street to your neighbourhood, and on. Among this trash comes coffee cups. Americans consume 400 million cups of coffee daily, summing up to over 146 billion cups yearly. Though, you might feel good recycling your coffee cups, it’s nothing but just a slow means to the solution. A product once broken down about thrice is no longer effective to recycling as it will be left with less fiber. Just exactly how billions of coffee cups end up in landfills, after they were originally recycled.
Manufacturers of plantable coffee cups intend offering a better solution to recycling process, which results into this perfect idea for creating a cup that can be planted instead of being thrown away. Just drinking coffee could soon help to landscape the community. This coffee cup biodegrades in about six months, then transforms into native flowers and trees. A coffee cup grows minimum of a tree, and then work to better our planet by extracting a ton of Carbon-IV-Oxide in a period of 40 years. Coffee cups sprouts well in any type of soil- in community gardens, rural landscapes, or anywhere you see fit. Should you choose not to replant your cup, there will be bins in participating locations where you can toss the cups. Coffee cups allow us to give back to nature by preventing us from cutting down trees and eliminating forests to make cups. So far, over 140,000 containers have been planted.
Reduce. Reuse. Grow. company intends taking their idea to San Francisco and Colorado (after raising money on KickStarter) where people will purchase and plant the cups at different locations. Plantable coffee cups that turn into trees will come to reality by 2015 summer Should all things being equal. With time, several other products can be invented through same process. Togo containers, paper products, shipping boxes, etc can be transformed from tree-destroying pollutants, to biodegradable miracles that create trees!
