Most people don't think too much about the to go cup their coffee comes in until it malfunctions.
Smart Lid Systems has designed a lid in hopes of reducing the number of scalding incidents (and lawsuits).
The fast pace of today's culture pushes both consumers and café staff at your local coffee shop to take short-cuts and make mistakes often resulting in severe scalding cases when a spillage occurs.
This new lid contains a warning indicator that the contents are hot and a sealing indicator that shows whether or not the lid is securely attached properly to the cup. The lid also changes color as the beverage inside cools.
Smart Lid is also offering opportunities for marketers to advertise on the lid.
What do you think about these warning, color changing lids? Has it really become necessary to package products this way?
