The Coffee Cup That Is Truly Recyclable

The Coffee Cup That Is Truly Recyclable

UK – Frugalpac has created a 100% recyclable paper coffee cup. According to the company, it is the first coffee cup that can be easily and completely recycled.
Unlike other paper coffee cups, Frugal Cups are made from recycled paperboard with no waterproofing chemicals. Standard paper coffee cups are harder to recycle because they are produced from plastic-coated virgin paperboard. That material does not break down easily when recycled. Another difference is that the parts of the Frugal Cup – the outer layer and the liner – are easy to separate during the recycling process. The cups are already in production (they come in four colors – including polka dots) and can be ordered from the company.
