There is no hesitation when people use disposable cups. Although
we all know we must not use them, we never stop. To let people
know how dangerous it is and warn them disappearing forest we
have designed this disposable cup.
It is a normal paper cup we are always using in public space. There
is the earth image with engraving form on the bottom surface of the
paper cup inside. After they drink coffee or tea with this cup, people
will see the image of the earth and think of the world they live but
being destroyed by themselves.
