The reCUP™ paper cup by CupPrint has been certified by the prestigious German Green Dot scheme as AAA.
That means reCUP™ cups can be recycled in any paper waste stream and recycled into new paper products.
The reCUP™ is the first and only paper cup to be certified at this level.
Here you can follow a cup from bin to rebirth, via a regular waste processing plant commonly seen across Europe and the UK – and then through a pulping facility.
Terry Fox, General Manager of CupPrint says: “We’re delighted with the results for reCUP™ during the tests done as part of the German Green Dot certification, which will now open up new avenues for recyclable paper cups in Ireland, Europe and the UK.”
The reCUP™ uses a different type of paper cup liner called EarthCoating®, which is a mineralised liner containing less plastic.
This mineralised liner aims to break down more easily in appropriate recycling channels.
CupPrint is a Huhtamaki Group company and offers customers a range of paper cup choices.
- Standard PE lined paper cups that are recyclable where facilities exist
- Compostable cups that are compostable in commercial composting facilities (including domestic brown bins)
- reCUP™ recyclable paper cups as detailed above.
Cups are available from quantities as low as 1000 pcs with high resolution custom printing and 15-day delivery.
This fast turnaround and low Minimum Order Quantity means smaller businesses with less storage space can present their brand in a unique and high quality paper cup.
reCUP™ recyclable paper cups allow you to show your brand’s commitment to sustainability with a high quality, visually pleasing product that meets the highest standard currently available.
