As global demand for increased recycling rates and plastic reduction in single use packaging continues to grow, US-based restaurants and coffeehouses are doing their part for the environment by adopting the reCUP® recyclable paper cup and other recyclable paperboard foodservice products, made with EarthCoating® barrier coating. The most recent are Muscle Maker Grill with 40 locations, and Pie-Not with two locations.
UK’s reCUP recyclable paper cup with EarthCoating, has been recognized as fully recyclable by achieving the coveted “Category A Recyclable” certification per The Green Dot (Der Grune Punkt) recycling standards.
HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA— As the surf kicks up for the US Open of Surfing, across the street, Pacific City retail development will be kicking up the first wave of a paper cup recycling program for Southern California and the nation.
Traditionally, paper cups have typically been sent to landfill, because the inner lining of plastic is not designed to process through paper recycling equipment.
