Disposable cup collection

A rubbish bag specially designed for water or coffee vending machines to promote disposable cup recycling has been patented by Spanish businessman Gonzalo Bayona.

Every day millions of water and coffee cups are thrown away in the general waste in offices, medical centres, fitness centres and even homes, mingling with all kinds of materials and not being recycled. Bayona designed the EcoTira to boost recycling of such containers which have short lifespans.

Thanks to its tubular shape the EcoTira allows convenient and easy segregation of cups, and is made of plastic or paper depending on the material of the cup. It adapts to any type of liquid dispensing machine and holds 100 used cups.

The designer is seeking manufacturers and investment partners in order to expand in Spain and worldwide.
