E-Smart Lid / Induction Cup Lid

E-Smart Lid
E-Smart Lid

According to a report by the BBC, “There are currently only a small number of specialist plants in the UK able to process the disposable used cups, and as a result, the vast majority of them (more than 99.75%) don't get recycled.” E-Smart Lid (Induction Lid) is a portable and reusable smart lid with a built-in chip that allows the user to pay with a swipe. The E-Smart Lid is made of food-grade silicone which allows it to be attached to cups of different materials. Shops are also encouraged to install cup collection stations where the user can recycle used cups, wash the E-Smart lid, and collect rewards.
