How to Pee in the Woods 1, 2021.
In a more cynical moment I thought, a cup just temporarily holds something you’ll have to pee out later. In the last year I have done a lot more peeing in woods and parks and ditches as public washrooms are closed or busy. These cups illustrate a technique for peeing in the woods that my grandma taught me - find a nice log to hang off so you don’t get pee on your shoes or pants. Grandma loved being outdoors and she was practical. So here you are, a cup that’s about the inevitable outcome of your interaction with it. It’s friendly, helpful, a little fatalist.
