Disposable cup+

The astonishing amount of the cups that we use in public spaces has become a brutal killer to our environment. Though disposable cup is very convenient, the traditional circular cup is uneasy to carry and also creates waste easily. “Disposable cup+” is an innovative design reformed by the using method from the traditional one; it uses decomposable organism PLA material which facilitates the recycling process. Nevertheless, the flat style can help the cups to be placed easily. Furthermore, the side structure and easy-to-open bottom was added to the cup design to help temporal storage and using frequency, so as to reduce the waste of materials.
