A biodegradable fertilising flower pot made from used coffee grounds

Pitch

We obtain used coffee grounds from cafeterias and together with other organic ingredients we produce biodegradable fertilising flowerpots to replace the plastic pots that producers use. We sell our product, the Greenbox, for 1 euro each while still saving money for the producer since he’s not required to buy extra fertiliser. The production of plastic releases a huge amount of CO2 in the air, but the production of our product leaves no Carbon footprint.
