The R-Cup is designed using a mono material and manufacturing technology which is universally abundant and universally regarded as a valuable recyclable material by customers and consumers. The R-cup is produced using a drawn wall ironing process and a die stamping process. This is a mass production method which is commonly used worldwide.
The R-cup is designed for hot and cold beverages, the same design can be used for both the only difference is the sleeve for hot drinks to prevent fingers from getting scalded. The lid has the option to be crimped onto the design to prevent spillages. The designs are cheap to produce on a mass scale and can be customised for each brand.
The system I have conceptualised will help to reduce the number of items which will be recycled and move people towards a more reusable model once mindsets have been changed, this is a long-term goal though.
