Replace paper cups with jellobite edible biodegradable cups

Paper cups are often coated with plastic resin making them non-recyclable and keeping them in tact in the landfill for as long as 20 years. The paper cup is not much better than the Styrofoam varieties that have been banned in several cities in the U.S. and in Europe.As hard as they try, governments cannot legislate environmental responsibility.

One of the main problems is the lack of a viable alternative. Paper is not an effective alternative to Styrofoam. Paper cups and storage products consume massive amounts of resources to produce, causing many environmental activists to recognize and support the use of plastic cups over paper ones. With so much conflicting information, how do we know which products to choose? We need portable, disposable cups and take out containers, but none of these containers are environmentally friendly. What do we do? We invent something new.

Why Are Biodegradable Products Important:

Jellobite is definitely a step in the right direction toward biodegradable, sustainable products. After enjoying a drink, simply eat your cup or throw it away and the cup disintegrates in one week or less. No environmentalist could ask for much more than that. Biodegradable products are an essential element in the effort to reduce waste and land pollution. Products that naturally decay add nutrients back to the soil and do not linger, pollute and fill our overflowing landfill areas. We are running out of earth in which to hide and store our garbage, so be on the lookout for biodegradable Jellobite cups in the Summer of 2012.
