Did you know that Starbuck’s Coffee sells on average 30 MILLION cups of coffee a day? That’s almost 11 BILLION cups of coffee a year! As impressive as that statistic may be, the flip side of their fortune building is the tons and tons of wasted paper and plastic involved with every single caffeine fix. Designer Christopher Panopoulos does not have a solution for all that waste, but he does want the ubiquitous coffee cup to serve double duty and be slightly more sustainable. How about a Willy Wonka inspired edible lid? Or a lid that flips into an ashtray?
