Simon commented on Juice Box Redesign

Nice idea, I like the juice box focus. It's a huge market, with a lot of straw/straw packaging waste, and a unique space in this challenge as most others look to address coffee cups etc. I'd love to see you take this further, looking at a variety of designs and how kids might use them (and spill!). One thing that struck me as potentially useful to prevent spills is this water bottle cap technology:


Simon commented on Paper or plastic? We choose paper-based cup lids

Nice idea guys. Have you found a user challenge with filling the cup too high? If the cup is filled to the top, will pushing the lid in create an overflow? Is there a design change to the cup that can help stem this, or would you need a user behavior adjustment?


Simon commented on Gaami Cup - Reimagining the takeaway coffee cup

Great concept guys, and well developed so far! I'm curious if you've managed to run a pilot in a local coffee shop? If so, what did the user experience look like, both from the perspective of the drinker and the various employees that would need to stack/grab/fill/fold? Did you encounter any challenges? I'm also wondering about PLA coating...only compostable in industrial compost facilities, correct? Does it then make it less recyclable in places that don't have that service?
