17 / service design


17 is a shared system that contains the value of environmental protection to reduce the use of plastic straw. We came up with a contrasting visual of a silicone straw and a twisted plastic straw, and we created the brand 17. The user will ID the dedicated app and locate a 17 kiosk within a radius of the user's location. If you recognize QR code, you can borrow a silicon straw. If the straw is returned within the use time, '17' will pick up the used wash overnight, clean it up, and return to the machine. Users can conveniently use a straw without owning a silicon straw.
