ChangecUP / paper cup


“Change Cup” originates from a simple question; "Why should paper cups be flat or cylindrical?” Change Cup, being foldable, is a different type of paper cup, designed to reduce the shortcomings of existing paper cups.
Change Cup, with its big capacity and possibility of standing use, makes up for the defects of the 'Envelope-type paper cup' that can be used only once for one sip. Moreover, Change Cup improves the 'cylindrical paper cup' that occupies too much volume and is likely to waste resources. It can also be opened easily by pulling its sides with two fingers, which makes it easier to drink than the ‘envelope-type paper cup’.
