When Littering Can Be Good

March 5, 2015

If you’re an urban dweller, you’ve seen them all over the place: spilling out from full trashcans, buried in snow piles, on the edge of a river bank, and in the hands of many. They’re identifiable often by the logo placed prominently on the side. They’re disposable coffee cups. And we use a LOT of them. Americans alone drink 400 million cups of coffee a day. The guy who invented the Keurig even publicly admitted the guilt he felt over the amount of waste generated by users of the machine.

So what can be done? Why not turn a disposable product into something that would be good for the world. That’s the idea behind Reduce. Reuse. Grow. which is raising funds on kickstarter for a decomposable coffee cup embedded with seeds of native flowers and plants. As a coffee drinker, and as an avid styrofoam-hater, I have to say I’m a fan.
