A Biodegradable/Recyclable Paper Coffee Cup with Integrated Lid and Spout

Surprisingly, the company says, the cup does not have the plastic lamination inside that most drinking cups do; instead they use a “cutting-edge water-based dispersion waterproofing technology,” whatever the heck that means. The end result, they claim, is that the cup biodegrades like regular paper, or can be recycled.

I have to say the form is pretty clever, forming that natural spout:

Fast food chain A&W has announced they’re rolling out the cup for trials in Canada.
