Your Coffee Cup, Made Out of Coffee

Starbucks gained attention recently by declaring they’re moving to a plastic straw-free future, which is a great small step toward less plastic waste. But what if the coffee cup could be pushed a lot further? That’s the thought being Kaffeeform, coffee cups which is made from recycled coffee grounds themselves. The cups use leftover coffee grounds, mixed with a biopolymer to make them reusable, dishwasher safe, yet also biodegradable and left with a slight coffee scent. It’s an ingenious solution to a problem of waste and pollution, and one that inspires us to think more creatively. The cups are available for sale starting at $18. Via Yanko Design:
