The +4.5 Paper Cup is one recyclable coffee cup that would not require you to use a cardboard sleeve. The amount of material needed is reduced with the incorporation of a fine handle along one side of the drinking vessel, easily installed as part of the same piece of paper that's rolled up and glued together.

With this design by Inhye Hwang and Hongseok Kim, you would have yourself a convenient mug that can be reasonably sipped in transit, that's comfortable to hold and that can be disposed of the moment that you've emptied it. What's more, the iF Design Award entry features a tear-off tab along its handgrip that's intended to be used as a stirring stick for preparing your beverage and continuously blending your drink inside the +4.5 Paper Cup.
