Daniel Grosso thanks for the link! We studied them further and based on how they and other existing cup-sharing systems operate, we decided to edit our proposal. We have since greatly modified the main elements to assure our idea would be logistically and economically feasible to test and implement. We will soon post a video of our modified proposal in the comment section of this post and tag you to get your input!

Hi Saniya Shahid  , thanks for your feedback! We have since greatly modified our proposal to assure our idea would be logistically and economically feasible to test and implement. Many of the changes we made was specifically to address the health and safety concerns that people seem to have with cup-sharing systems. We will soon post a video of our modified proposal in the comment section of this post and tag you to get your input!

Hi Katherine Tinco , thanks for your feedback! We have since greatly modified our proposal to assure our idea would be logistically and economically feasible to test and implement. We decided to greatly simplify our proposal and implement a system using existing infrastructure, such as Starbuck's reusable cups and mobile app. We also modified the smart-bin to create a deposit box that could easily and cheaply be put in place and tested. We will soon post a video of our modified proposal in the comment section of this post and tag you to get your input!
