Earlier this month, I mentioned the edible Scoff-ee cup, designed to reduce the waste created by disposable hot drinks cups. Instead of throwing away your cup after your coffee, you just eat it! When I first read about the Scoff-ee cup, it did occur to me that some people might not actually want to eat their wafer, sugar paper and white chocolate cup though (I’m not sure I would), which might lead to them binning it. As a cup you can eat has got to count as food (right?!) that can’t be a good thing.
So here’s a much better invention, (although admittedly one that addresses a slightly different hot beverage related problem to the Scoff-ee cup); the rather handsome c2cup.
As this article explains, the c2cup is a reusable drinks mug
made […] from the coffee chaff, a byproduct derived from roasting, and an unregulated residual that usually goes straight into landfills.
Fantastic – a product created from materials that would normally be wasted. You can find out more about how the c2cup was designed and made in the company’s Kickstarter video. Unfortunately, I’m not a coffee drinker, but if somebody could just design a mug made out of tea, I’d definitely buy one!
