Frugalpac has added another innovative option to its range of sustainable coffee cups – the Frugal Cup Linerless.
Made from virgin paper, sourced entirely from sustainably accredited forests, the Frugal Cup Linerless is specially treated with a unique coating which makes it suitable for hot and cold drinks while still allowing the pulp to break down during the standard paper recycling process.
Around 2.5 billion coffee cups are used and thrown away each year in the UK, however according to widely published statistics – such as those from the BBC’s Reality Check – less than 0.25% of these are currently recycled. In line with Frugalpac’s objective to become the number one replacement for all coffee cups on the UK market, both the Frugal Cup and the new Frugal Cup Linerless can be disposed of in any paper recycling bin.
Paul McReynolds, head of sales and marketing at Frugalpac, stated: ‘We are delighted to be able to reveal our latest development, the Frugal Cup Linerless, as another alternative to the majority of difficult to recycle coffee cups. We are committed to supporting a circular economy and through our continuous innovation we aim to place Frugalpac at the forefront of sustainable packaging.’
The Frugal Cup Linerless, developed using Frugalpac’s innovative manufacturing technology, is available in 8 oz, 12 oz and 16 oz sizes, with the option to either create a bespoke branded cup or an original Frugalpac design, offering complete flexibility.
