Problem Statement

There is too many plastic cups being disposed of that have a negative effect on the environment.


Customer / Problem

People don't practice recycling and are not aware of the problem of plastic waste to the environment.


Solution

A café that sells drinks in two types of biodegradable cups. An incentive system for customers to return with their biodegradable cups. This reduces the plastic cups that would otherwise be used and encourages customers to keep using their reusable cups.
