World's First Plantable Coffee Cup by Alex Henige

World's First Plantable Coffee Cup

A coffee cup that has native seeds embedded within the material to be used for reforestation in your local communities.

Why don't we plant our trash locally to better improve our communities? 

Americans discard over 146 billion coffee cups annually, even with recycling, the paper itself can only be reused 2-3 times before the fibers are unusable and need to be discarded in local landfill sites. Each of these new cups will be capable of extracting over 1 ton of CO2 out of the atmosphere annually, once planted. 

We have developed a post consumer paper based cup which will be able to extract over 1 ton of CO2 out of the atmosphere annually once planted. We have taken those fibers from local recycling centers, which would usually be too rough to implement back into a packaging product, and created a cup that we are happy to truly name the most eco friendly disposable coffee cup. If you decide to throw away and not plant, no problem. The
