Frugalpac extends range with introduction of the Frugal Lid
Frugalpac has revealed its full range, including an innovative pulp moulded alternative to plastic lids, the Frugal Lid, as well as an eye catching new ‘ivy’ design for its Frugal Cup.
Seven months after large scale production of the Frugal Cup began, the company has extended its sustainable offering in a move away from conventional polystyrene lids, with the newly available Frugal Lid. This pulp moulded paper lid utilises dry in place technology and Forest Stewardship Council wood fibre to achieve a consistent high quality pressed paper lid.
Frugalpac’s cup range now features four branded styles. The latest ‘ivy’ design reflects the brand’s eco-credentials, joining the vibrant ‘dotty’ and limited edition bespoke design by Frugalpac ambassador, broadcaster Gemma Cairney. Bespoke designs can also be commissioned through an in-house printing process.
Made from recycled paperboard, with no waterproofing chemicals, the Frugal Cup’s food grade liner separates easily during the standard recycling process. The paperboard and liner can then be recycled through separate streams which means that the cup can be disposed of in any paper recycling bin at home, on the street, in the coffee shop or office.
George Rumble, sales manager of Frugalpac, commented: ‘In response to customer demand, we have developed a sustainable lid that fits with the ethos of our recycled paper cups. The lids look great, offering a premium finish that really complements the freshly designed range. The range of designs and the option to print bespoke branding offers operators the chance to put their own stamp on the Frugal Cup and fly the sustainable, recyclable flag. We are excited to see the variety of cups and lids in coffee shops around the country!’
The Frugalpac range of cups and lids are available in three sizes – 8 oz, 12 oz and 16 oz.
