Typical take-out coffee cups usually consist of glued paper, paper sleeves, and lids. In other words, it uses much wood. One paper cup makes 11 grams of Co2 emission, so 1 tons leads to 6.3 tons of Co2 emission. To reduce the carbon dioxide emission I propose a Paperless Coffee Cup. The body of the cup is a circular sheet of Bagasse(sugarcane pulp) in which the folding method keeps the shape of the cup. The wings on the cups surface will protect your hands from the hot contents through the space between the surface of the cup and them. Also the space functions to catch the water drops slipping down when you hold cold beverage.
