It may not be much but a coffee mug can go a long way. Especially if you are part of the working class, using it to hold water or better yet some good old organic coffee, this biodegradable coffee mug idea from Joana Carvalho should put you closer to being the eco-friendly conscious individual you ought to be.
The project of Joana is actually called a Kit for Coffee. The project is made up of a saucer, cup and a spoon which are all made from biopolymer non-polluting and biodegradable materials. The whole thing was created from a model kit used in building airplanes or robots. Minimal resources were used to produce this biodegradable cup, something that can surely put you in line with your eco-friendly initiatives.
The coffee mug could be a great gift as well, especially if you know people who are held up in the office. With the Holidays fast approaching, this is one neat and functional gift you can consider handing out.
