Smart Planet Technologies is the recipient of the 2017 Green Arrow Award for System & Design Innovations. Here are some facts about their product called reCUP:
- Most paper cups cannot be recycled because of plastic coatings that are used.
- Smart Planet Technology has redesigned the cup coating (called Earth Coating) to reduce plastic use by 51% compared to traditional poly-coated cups and is engineered for recycling.
- reCups can be run on existing paper cup converting equipment and provide significant environmental, economic and performance benefits compared to traditional paper cups!
- Smart Planet Technologies licenses their technology to interested parties to serve the greater good.
- All this leads to green design, reduction in toxics, reduction of land filling, and leads the cup industry into a new era of zero waste!
