Pi Ke Puht Cups Cut Down on Plastic Waste and Make Landfills Greener

Sian Pascale is a French artist behind the awesome and thought-provoking Pi Ke Puht cups. Pi Ke Puht cups are disposable clay cups with seeds implanted in them. The cups are designed to grow plants after they have been disposed of and the clay has broken down.

The Pi Ke Puht cups were inspired by the disposable terracotta cups formerly used in India. The cups would be used in the same way as plastic cups are now, and would commonly be thrown directly onto the ground after use. Fun fact: Pi Ke means "to drink" and "Puht" is the sound the cup makes when smashed on the ground. Here's hoping that awesome art pieces like this inspire companies to make more eco-friendly disposable products. If companies could help turn landfills into gardens, the world would be a much better place. Stats for Plantable Clay Saucers Trending: Older & Chilly
