GREEN CUP - NEW STOCK DESIGN PAPER CUP

18 September 2009

The Paper Cup Company has introduced a new range of environmentally friendly disposable cups. They are perfect for the office environment, showing your staff you care about the environment and making sure they are hydrated and alert. There is no minimum order for this product and they are available in various sizes.

The Paper Cup Company is very concerned about the environment. This new range is more environmentally friendly than the EPS cups as they can be recycled through Save-a-Cup. The Paper Cup Company is actively involved in supporting organisations finding methods for recycling paper cups as they are very concerned about the environment.

The Paper Cup Company is very concerned about the environment. This new range is Save-a-Cup. The Paper Cup Company is actively involved in supporting organisations finding methods for recycling paper cups as they are very concerned about the environment. The Paper Cup Company is a member of The Paper Cup Recovery and Recycling Group. The group is co-ordinated and independently advised by The Fibre Technology Association, who are researching new routes into recycling cups. "The group has progressed with a programme of work to investigate the options for recovering and recycling paper cups in line with current government guidelines, such as collection strategy that allows all types of paper drinking cups to be recovered from sites and to overcome the technical issues associated with various types of recycling, especially at paper mills around the UK, where the recovered cups could be recycled into products such as paper, tissue, board and packaging materials".

The Save a Cup scheme was set up by the vending, foodservice and plastics industries to collect biodegradable plastic cups from workplaces across the UK. The new scheme, which started operating on 1 June 2008, enables workplaces to send their used compostable cups to a network of industrial composting facilities. Save a Cup General Manager, Graham Pascoe, said this network was still being developed, but cup collection services are available in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Leicester and parts of Cambridgeshire.

The Paper Cup Company Sales Director, Mark Woodward, said "We are keen to work with government agencies and other organizations to develop effective environmental processes". The green cup visibly promotes the use of recycling through Save a Cup and therefore actively promotes the most environmentally responsible way to recycle the cups. Tommy Coogan of Coogan packaging, one of the largest independent distributors of paper cups in Ireland said "This is a new innovative design that promotes a message to dispose of the paper cups in an environmentally friendly way, something that we as a supplier are keen to promote. This cup also provides the answer to a question that is frequently asked by our customers and allows them to show their customers that they care about environmental issues".
