Dispose of this new coffee cup in your mouth8/7/2012
A bit of coffee in the morning is an essential start to most people’s day, but what about the trash from all those disposable cups? Venezuelan designer Enrique Luis Sardi has come up with an innovative solution: "sip the coffee, eat the cup." Sardi’s cups, produced for the coffee chain LaVazza, are cup-shaped cookies you can devour once you’ve finished your espresso. They even have frosting on the inside, so that the coffee doesn’t seep through and soak your cup. While this may be a smart way to reduce waste, shouldn’t we worry that eating a cookie every morning will increase waists? [Source]
Would you pay a little more for a cup you could eat?
