Before my history discussion every week, my TA opens the floor to let anyone promote their event, club or even product. Last week, a student from the business school said one of his friends invented this unique cup. While working on a patent, he was selling them and putting the profits towards charity.
It is a washable 12 oz. cup that holds your beverage just as well as any other mug, but the interesting part is that it collapses when you’re finished using it.
At first, I thought it was a fine idea but nothing I would be really interested in. Then I remembered how every time I take my coffee on the go (which is often), I can’t bring a bulky ceramic mug because my back pack is already too full to begin with. However, whenever I grab a disposable paper cup that I end up throwing in the garbage, I feel so guilty. I realized this was the perfect solution to my problem and bought one right away.
Now I never have to feel bad about using a disposable coffee cup again. Plus, it is so much better than buying my coffee while I’m out because I can assure I am using organic fair-trade beans and personalize it with non-dairy creamers.
Plus the name is so clever.
