Do you drink coffee? According to USA Today, Starbucks sells 4 million coffee drinks per day. We drink millions of cups of coffee every day from paper cups, but have you ever wondered where all those paper cups of coffee go? More than likely, they fill up our landfills and pollute our environment.
We have engineered a 100% biodegradable paper coffee that will produce plants, if the cup is thrown into dirt. We develop these cups locally and sell them to our local coffee shops in Wichita. In this venture we will learn about bioplastics, sustainability, and entrepreneurship.
We will work with MakeICT and GoCreate to manufacture the lids and cups from household products like cornstarch and plant fibers. Our total startup cost we be approximately $400 to purchase the materials and a membership to these great makerspaces.
