I was a leaf really. / Flat disposal papercup

I was a leaf really.
I was a leaf really.

The glacier covering the Greenland is getting thinner every year by 2 meters. We know the fact and still consume disposable materials just for convenience. The flat paper cups placed at drinking water stand is one of the most wasteful products. We suggest “It is a leaf in reality” project so that people may feel certain resistance when using a disposable. Print the texture of a leaf outside the paper cup so that people may feel as if they are picking a leaf when they use a paper cup. Our project hopes that we can change the behavior of even a single person from paper cup user to a mug user.
