amron experimental's stircle will stir your coffee with no environmental damage

new york-based product design studio amron experimental proposes a brand new way to stir drinks — titled ‘stircle’, the device mixes all the ingredients, so you don’t need to use wooden or plastic sticks. to get a mixed drink, the user only needs to put the cup in stircle and wait for their drink to be ready.

as stated on the website, scott amron, the founder of the studio, is deeply concerned about our planet’s pollution. ‘400 million stir sticks are thrown in the trash every day. that bothers me,’ says amron. ‘wooden sticks are bad. plastic sticks are worse. less trash, less CO2, less money and more trees.’

the process of stirring

  • what’s the equivalent carbon footprint in wood and plastic stirrers of this mechanism? maybe we just need to carry a spoon on our key chains (seriously).

    steve hassler says:
  • 99% less than a stick? I’m sorry but this needs some kind of explanation. Also, the intensity of the stirring would be improved by eccentric placement of the cup, as shown in one example.
