The splittable cup carrier is currently pending a patent, but its brilliant in its simplicity. So it's only a matter of time before it's approved. Not only does it address the differing needs of every consumer -- whether it's multiple drink orders that need to be split up later or smaller orders in general -- it also ensures a more eco-friendly alternative to standard designs.
Conceived by P4CK, a design agency based in London, England, the splittable cup carrier is made from a single piece of material and doesn't use glue in the production process. The designers write, "The major benefit being that it can be easily separated into 2 x 2 cup carriers making it responsive to customers needs, eliminating the need for separate 2 or 4 carriers."
