This product is 100% biodegradable and made from eco-friendly material to decrease environmental impact..
This reminds me of a 1950s Pabst "Pop-a-Top" beer can I found that had a slogan on the side.."New pop-a-top can!When you are done,you can just throw it away!" I wonder if they realized that down the road the landscape would be littered with millions and millions of cans from people that took their slogan to heart... :lol:
The words disposable and biodegradable are all over the ad..Some people will do just that..along a trail for the bears to lick clean... :roll:

Of course..some concerned people will actually carry them out..I know that.

I wouldn't want to carry it in.

It looks like a "one-use" item. It also makes me think of a KFC "Meal Deal".

Well it's interesting and reminds me of boiling water in a paper cup. I think someone in a survival situation would want something more permanent, and that could be found lying around any urban disaster area. I didn't see a video of it in use over a fire.

I'm not sure where it fits in.

I'll get some flied lice for lunch at the local oriental fast food joint so I can test their origami take out paper containers with handy dandy wire bails :D

I'll use a handy dandy Fancee Feest stove.


all in the interest of stove science. I made a stove using a paper cup in the interest of stove science ;)

Someone needs to origami a standard paper plate into a cup and try boiling water in that..To me that would be a better idea because i have a couple hundred of those already..

orikaso..http://www.orikaso.com/about.php..too late..I think I have 4 sets now..would have to check..

maybe they should make them out of aluminum foil..and reuse them several times... :roll:

Even more extreme. It can be done.

Amazing how water absorbs heat to prevent the paper from burning. Whoda thunkit :shock:

So, end result+ the guy's idea works. Hope he can get the funds for his project. Give awy paper cups with every dollar donated. :o 8-)

They didn't think much of the paper idea also on NW Hikers...for somewhat the same reasons..
