OpenIDEO has launched a new challenge to push the boundaries of sustainable design and material and chemical innovation to solve a prevalent global waste issue. The NextGen Cup Challenge asks innovators, suppliers, designers, and problem-solvers to reinvent the fiber cup system.
Solutions entered into the Challenge must be recoverable and address the fiber-based hot and cold cup; however, ideas may also include cup lids, sleeves, straws, liner innovations, and/or consider reuse and alternative delivery systems. Ideas may also consider hot and cold cups separately.
Up to six top ideas will have the opportunity to enter into a business accelerator program following the challenge. The deadline for submissions is November 16, 2018.
