Less ice-Cup / Water Conservation

Less ice-Cup
Less ice-Cup

After drinking a cold drink with ice, a large amount of ice will be left in the cup which will be wasted, resulting in the loss of water resources. In order to solve this problem, we designed a modular beverage cup. At the bottom of the cup is a detachable ice box with ice. After the customers have finished drinking, they can find the recycling box in the nearby store and return the ice box. According to the ice melting situation, the ice box will be frozen again or reused directly. Every time the ice box is returned, the customer can get points for coupon exchange.In this way, water resources can be reused.
