Compleat - The Disposable Coffee Cup with No Plastic Lid
There's a new disposable coffee cup called Compleat which features an all-paper design that has a built-in lid with sipping spout. Peter Herman has come up with a greener, all-paper disposable cup that folds closed like a takeout container to form a sipping spout, and we are rejoicing.
Every week we probably use 3-5 disposable cups not matter how hard we try and bring our own travel mug. Imagine how many lids we use - and then imagine everyone who's doing this 1-2 times a day. That all amounts to a crazy number of lids being thrown out along with the paper cups.
Compleat could ultimately save retailers money too. It’s just one piece, and that will be unique in the coffee drinker's mind. Also since the lids are foldable, they can have messaging on them that is sure to please Cafes trying to remind customers about their coffee and offerings. Launch date and for whom Compleat ultimately rolls out too is still up in the air, but we'd love to see it soon.

This looks really awesome. Talk about reinventing the coffee cup! Amazing application of innovative thinking. If anything, this should win design awards. Really like the concept, just wondering how well it would retain heat?
