It IS easy being green. (If your cups are made out of cookies)

In the ceaseless effort to "one-up" the bread bowl, Italian coffee company Lavazza commissioned designer Enrique Luis Sardi to create an espresso cup that is also a cookie.  By now, I think most of us are aware of corn or other grain-based plates and cups slowly make a dent in our landfills, and reducing your carbon footprint is the new yoga/pilates/Zumba/breast-feeding in public.  It's one thing to use biodegradable cups and plates and feel good on an unquantifiable New Agey level, but it's quite a more awesomer thing to use gastrodegradable (getting that trademarked) cups that make you feel good in a totally tangible way.
