Sharepot is a honey cup that is all about sustainability and appreciation of the important bees. The packaging is made of cardboard and is coated with bioplastic, which prevents the packaging from soaking. It is also completely recyclable and reusable. The advantage over a conventional glass container is first of all its lightness. This contributes to the improvement of the Co2 footprint. Due to the total darkness the cup is perfect for storing honey.

The label is made of seed paper. This can be easily removed after consumption and inserted into the cup with plant soil. In this way you give the bees something back and get them new flowers and nectar.

The packaging is designed to avoid unnecessary waste.

With this project I would like to emphasize once again how important bees are for us and our environment.

What’s Unique?
It is a packaging created for humans and bees – a cup to share. It shows how easy it can be to give the bees something bacl and keep them alive, without producing waste and protecting our environment.
