LIDfree, it’s a new design of takeaway cup without the plastic lid but it still keeps convenience and functionalities effectively. The current marketing had accepted to use the paper straw, eco-straw. But the amount of takeaway cups usage hasn’t decreased. Instead, the amount is increasing because of COVID-19.
Although the normal takeaway cups can be recycled, the watertight lids are still made from plastic. It still would make the natural environment to be worse.
Therefore, we decided to design the new takeaway paper cup with an innovation origami structure. How to keep the lid’s function and be easy to recycle but without the plastic lids.
”LIDfree” is all made from the recyclable paper material and be fulfilled in one piece of paper with origami technical. We combined two functions. Including the cup’s body for contenting the coffee or liquid, and the integrating lid for top cover. We request the design should be made by just one piece of paper for manufacturing to make it be easily recycled faster.
The designer cannot stop human to use takeaway cups, but we can make the products be kind to the environment by design power. To decrease the plastic quantity for the world.
