Each degree of change is major. I’m certain! If Greenzo- I mean Al Gore- is right, global warming will have a giant impact on the weather of this planet Earth. Each of these cups gives a terrifying factoid based on tiny degrees of change in the global temperature, uncovering the victim of the truth with each horror-filed sip. Drink up!
Designer Mina Kwag explains:
The effects of 5 incremental rises in temperature, from +1 to +5°C, and the sea levels corresponding to each temperature rise is represented by thin wave lines. The following items, covered by the surface of the waves, are the predicted effects of those rising temperatures and sea levels.
The ‘Only 1°C Change Can Affect Us’ cup series …is made of eco-friendly ceramic. The cups, by means of the messages printed on them, draw people’s attention to the impact that global warming will have on their daily lives in the future. Also, when the cups are used, we can be satisfied about not using disposable cups made of plastic or paper, and we can also feel good about raising awareness of the problem of disposable cups.
Well now! Simple concept, yes? Cute way to “be green,” right?
Does it make sense to create more waste to “raise awareness?”
