This plantable coffee cup allows you to get your caffeine boost while helping the environment at the same time. From Reduce. Reuse. Grow., the eco-friendly coffee cups help local communities with reforestation. The cup is embedded with California-native seeds right in its packaging material. Planting instructions are also listed on the bottom of the container.

Currently seeking finances on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, the plantable coffee cup is described as a world first. The product provides an environmental solution to the 146 billion to-go coffee cups that end up in landfills every year. Even if you choose not to plant the cup, the packaging is biodegradable. This means it will turn into compost and break down completely within 180 days. Instead of becoming a new tree, the seeds will turn into nutrients for other plant life.
