Disposable cups make a huge contribution to the amount of waste we produce, it is probably not something many of us think about when we’re finishing our morning coffee. However, how could we create a product that will be both recycled and easily recyclable?
Are you a budding designer? In our previous post we talked about the DO Fellowship opportunity.
The DO Sustainable Cup Challenge aims to help the selected Fellows to create an innovative and sustainable to-go cup. They will also be expected to develop the related infrastructure and create a campaign for New York City. The Fellows will have the opportunity to learn about a variety of topics from leading experts, including the environmental impact of packaging and materials as well as about recycling systems.
By tackling the Challenge, Fellows will have to learn how to turn an idea into action by using a hands-on approach. Fellows will also work on developing their own venture idea into a viable plan, that is ready for implementation during the following ten months in their home countries.
