We all know that caring about the environment is a good thing, but how many times do we actually do something to help?

Although I don’t do that much, there’s a part of me that wants to do more, and I’m sure you feel the same.

Maybe we can start with something simple, like planting our daily cup of coffee.

In America, we discard over 146 billion cups each year from coffee consumption, and they can only be reused 2 to 3 times. So the team at Reduce, Reuse, Grow created a container that is the most eco-friendly disposable coffee cup.

How does it work?

To plant your coffee cup, you simply follow the instructions on the bottom.

Unravel the cup, soak it in water for 5 minutes, and then sit back and watch it grow!

If you decide to throw it away and not plant it, then no problem. The cup is compost-certified and will biodegrade within 180 days, leaving the seeds and cup itself to turn into nutrients for other plants to enjoy!

It’s a great idea, and there are several ways you can help… I’m going to celebrate with a cup of coffee!
