Idea Title

Let's reuse Stripe NaNacup! every size and shape

Idea Summary

My grandma used to reuse Knitted yarn to knit a new knitwear. We can treat in a same way with our produced paper or plastic cups ( cold or hot ) by gathering constituent tapes and sanitizing them.

Please include a visual (can be either 2D or 3D) representation/prototype of your concept. (required)

tape can be converted to different shapes and every needed forms.

You can keep your factories. As the shape and materials are not that much changed, there is no need to huge changing in existed factories and devices.

The life cycle is some how closed circle and working in totally "circle" process.

every size, every shape, what do you need?

further research:

material development. Binding process . sanitization

This solution addresses which of the following:

  • Some of the Above
  • Reusable System

How have you incorporated additional sustainability attributes (beyond recoverability) into your solution?

reducing virgin raw material Recovery process begins immediately after consumption by the end user. As the shape and materials are not that much changed, there is no need to huge changing in existed factories and devices. The life cycle is some how closed and working in totally "cycle" process. every size every shape, what do you need?

What regions do you plan to address with your solution (and how will you accomplish this)?

It is applicable every where just like current cups.

Describe your target market. Who will benefit from your product?

All current costumers of paper cups All costumers of disposable and paper or plastic packaging.

What is the current stage of development of your idea?

  • Research & Early Testing

What are the biggest challenges you are facing today? What are existing gaps in your solution?

Converting current factory lines with lowest cost binding separated tapes together. Vertical binding without leakage. finding the optimal lifetime and resist of the primary tape. suitable sanitizing

Mentorship Needs (please select up to 3)

  • Fundraising / Finance

Tell us about yourself and your team. What is your background and experience?

I am a student of "sustainability science and solution" master program in Lappeenranta university of technology. I have studied physics as my Bachelor, also I have attended all courses of architecture bachelor program(no degree).

In what city are you located?


In what country are you located?


What is your legal / organizational structure? (if applicable)

master student of Lappeenranta university of technology

Please describe how becoming a Top Idea will support the growth of your concept.

Completing the team members. Some professions in packaging and material science will be invited. I also may do the progress as my master thesis or and support some other master thesis an the topic. Representing the improved idea for a local investor trough university mechanism.
