Winner of the iF Design Award in 2010, My Eco Can is a cool portable cup that is completely biodegradable. Cleverly shaped like a soda can to stand out amongst all those drab tumblers, each cup is made from PLA; a natural corn starch-based material that has the benefits of plastic properties, but no petroleum components. This quirky design looks like the perfect travel cup for all those cold summer drinks to come!

    Problem with the Eco-can: It’s too big and pricey compared to regular soda cans. I have a specialty fridge made specifically for the dimensions of a soda can, and this can is too big. Not to mention it costs $10 more than it needs to (most 12 oz tumblers I can buy for $4-5).
