Most of the take-away drinks at the food and juice joints employ the use of a glass that constitutes of 3 components – paper glass, plastic cap and a plastic straw. You can recycle paper but not the other two plastic items. We wanted to create a solution around getting rid of the plastic and also decreasing the number of materials used keeping the utility of the glass sippers intact.
After a lot of form explorations, we came up with this design for the glass that uses simple folds to form a cover, a lock mechanism and that is easy to stack, package and transport. Our solution is a very simple and minimal paper glass that is very handy.
