We’ve been touting biodegradable tableware [2] for some time now, but these wiggly cups made of Jello take things to the next level! Conceived by design consultancy The Way We See the World [3] for the 2nd annual Jell-O Mold competition [4] hosted by Gowanus Studio Space, the squishy cups are actually made of agar agar and come in yummy flavors like lemon-basil, ginger-mint, and rosemary-beet. When you’re done drinking from your Jello cup, just chuck it in the grass (agar agar actually nourishes plant life) or dispose of it in a more enjoyable fashion – eat it!
