San Luis Obispo, California sustainability company Reduce. Reuse. Grow. has developed a biodegradable coffee cup that features embedded seeds designed to grow into a tree when the whole thing is planted into ground, as per the included instructions on the bottom. The cup, which is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, utilizes local seeds based on where the cup is distributed. Even if the cup isn’t planted, it will still biodegrade in a landfill within 180 days, turning into nutrients for other plant life.
