When I was in #Haiti in 2010 I got to drink my 1st "bottle" of water from a plastic bag. It uses much less plastic per volume of water, they pack with no air spaces reducing shipping costs and related environmental impacts, etc and #EfficiencyMatters. :D
I think we should make flexible, portable baggie/cups with a more rigid bases that can stand up when filled like a cup, that are made from mushroom, hemp, bamboo or other natural, non-toxic and biodegradable plastics, that could replace the red Solo cup in many uses and the need for plastic bottled (or bagged) water in many circumstances, etc and they would flatten into a thin, flexible disk you can put in your back pocket and reuse for weeks or dispose of, and worst case scenario, if it ends up floating in the ocean it will biodegrade and be relatively non harmful to the environment within just a short time of exposure to the elements.
Someday soon we'll be 3D printing them from home, discarding our used cups into the shredder that re-melts the natural plastic back into a new custom 3D printed cup again or whatever we can dream up.
We should 3D print and recycle into new our own shoes as well. Imagine the benefit to those in need of expensive, difficult to obtain, out of reach for many, custom orthopedic shoes or inserts when they can simply print them just as easily and for the same cost as any other printed shoe design and have the ability to make improvements as well.
