Starbucks will be unveiling a new artistic design on its limited-edition reusable plastic cups this autumn—it will be the artwork that won the Starbucks White Cup Contest, which was running across the U.S. and Canada. In spring, the coffee giant asked its multiple fans in America to develop their own original artwork to fill the blank canvas of its white coffee cups. The winning work was submitted by 20-year-old community college student Brita Lynn Thompson, living in Pittsburgh.
Coca-Cola wants to make use of every empty bottle with a new upcycling campaign developed by Ogilvy & Mather China. The idea of the “2nd Lives” effort is to show that used plastic bottles can do better than being another piece of trash—with a simple design twist, they can be turned into quite useful items.
