In Korea, just like all over over the world, there are a ton of avid coffee drinkers, which means that there is also a lot of waste produced—but something like the coffee cup garden initiative by advertising students from Seoul's Sungkyunkwan University could turn waste into something positive.
By ordering a cup of coffee or any sort of beverage, the Takeout Your Garden campaign is designed to equip consumers with everything they need to start their own garden. This includes seeds, soil and by scanning a QR code, people would even be able to get step-by-step instructions on how to get started. The domed cups make perfect mini greenhouses for growing plants and instead of creating waste that clutters up a landfill, this offers a way to contribute something more beneficial to the world, since people will not likely cut down on their coffee consumption.
