Cups Made of Jell-O To Become a Real Product

Back in July we showed you Jelloware, cups made from Jell-O that make a far less wasteful solution for parties, festivals, and other events where minimizing trash is a must. The cups can be eaten, or simply tossed on the ground where the ingredients break down and help grass grow better (also a big plus for outdoor music festivals). After our coverage during the summer, the design company The Way We See The World had so many requests from people wanting to buy the product that they've come up with a solution for getting the colorful and creative cups to store shelves.

Jelloware now has its own Kickstarter page, where you can help get a sustainable product to market. The team is working to raise $10,000 in the next 30 days so that they can do prototyping and user testing to perfect the product. Plus, there are a lot of cool gifts that come back to you from the design team depending on how much you donate -- for instance, a $20 donation earns you a one-page solution to any design question or dilemma you send in, and a $50 donation earns you an invite to a Jelloware testing party.
