We were disappointed to hear that coffee cups have been receiving a somewhat bad reception recently. For those of you who don’t know, the problem stemmed from too many people throwing away coffee cups as opposed to disposing of them correctly, because there were only parts of the cup that could actually be recycled. This led to a proposed 25p ‘Latte Levy’ on each beverage to discourage their use. Coinadrink have always been keen to highlight that the vending industry does all it can for the environment, and we’re now set to debunk the myth that coffee cups are the devil thanks to reEco, the efficient new coffee cup.
What’s different about the reEco coffee cup?
The ‘reECo’ coffee cup is a fully recyclable cup that places the environment at the heart. It gets around the underlying problem by ensuring that both the inner and outer layer of the coffee cup can be recycled. The interior lining is made from a material called ‘EarthCoating’ rather than the traditional PE or PLA, and this can easily be separated during the standard recycling process. What this means is that they can be processed alongside standard paper recycling as if there wasn’t even a coating on them.
Features of the reEco coffee cup.
- 100% fully recyclable.
- 44% less plastic coating compared to the standard PE lined cups.
- Improved cup rigidity.
- Thicker cardboard so you don’t need a sleeve to protect your hand.
- Double Walled – Insulated Cups.
