Corn Plastic Coffee Mug - Environmentally friendly!

A group of Art Center College of Design students from my Design for Sustainability class designed this mug to replace the polystyrene and paper cups offered in the school cafeteria-plus you get $0.25 off the cost of your beverage!

This particular design has a silicone lid that securely attaches to the cup. The outside is matte and the inside is glazed. I prefer a version that Starbucks put out a few months ago. Their version is pretty much the same, but the outside is glazed (and of course has their logo) and the lid is plastic with a silicone liner to keep liquids sealed in. The key difference between the two is the price. "I Am Not A Paper Cup" is roughly $20 and the Starbucks version is $12. The upsides to either is that if you are a daily coffee drinker, you don't have to trash a paper cup and plastic lid every time you get take-out coffee. The downside is that both of them hold about 8 oz. - not favorable if you normally order a "grande" at Starbucks. Another issue for commuters is that it is not spill-proof or splash-proof. And finally, the Starbucks version CANNOT go into the microwave.

  • I am a BIG coffee drinker and throwing away paper cups is not only stupid but irresponsible. I'm so happy to find a company that's trying to solve this problem in such a smart way. I'm sold!!
