A 100% recyclable coffee cup
In one of my favorite blogs, which happens to be about “packagin” designs, I found a 100% recyclable coffee mug called Radial Fin Cup. It really is a design that is being submitted to a contest that is taking place at the level. global and online organized by Jovoto that consists of finding a disposable coffee cup design that is viable to replace the 58 billion coffee cups that are used per year and that are not recycled.
This model, you should see the rest, the truth is that it looks very good. A priori it is quite similar to any other glass that we are used to using to have coffee on the street or to take it to work, but it has some very well thought-out peculiarities.
The glass is made with a fiber made from the residues obtained from the treatment of sugar cane that are 100% biodegradable. In the center of the bowl is a ridged area, which designers say works as a thermal insulator, eliminating the need to add extra layers. It also incorporates a lid that looks like plastic but is actually a type of polylactic acid that is biodegradable.
And all this for trying to make a better world with viable solutions. The contest website is not wasted since there are designs equal or more innovative than this one.
