Andrew Brooks recently came up with a product called 'Pokito,' which could serve as a solution to the mountains of waste produced by disposable coffee cups. Brooks came up with the idea of creating a more sustainable coffee cup after witnessing entire forests being chopped down to produce paper cups. This spurred him to design a reusable cup that is not only sustainable, but also a practical alternative to disposable coffee cups.

Pokito is a reusable coffee cup that collapses down into a 4.5 cm container when not in use. This allows consumers to easily stow their coffee cup in their pocket, bag or briefcase until they need to use it. When fully extended, the flexible cup can hold up to 475 ml of hot or cold liquid at a time. The cup's high-heat resistant design and spill-proof lid also help to make it a safe and practical alternative to paper coffee cups.
