How CupPrint Became a Pioneer in Sustainable Custom Printed Paper Cup Practice
CupPrint values eco-friendly initiatives – both in our processes and in our product.
To-go paper coffee cups have been big news, especially if they’re not truly recyclable.
Future-ready and focused on doing our part in bringing sustainability to an industry that needs more of it, CupPrint is a leader in delivering sustainable products to the market.
As such, we’ve partnered with Smart Planet Technologies, an engineering company that shares our calling to care for the earth, to produce the world’s first commercially-available paper cup that’s engineered to be recyclable in traditional paper recycling systems.
In October 2017, as part of this partnership with Smart Planet, CupPrint added the revolutionary reCup to its commercial order offerings.
The reCup looks the same, works the same, and is manufactured the same way as traditional designer paper cups. The only difference is, instead of a polyethylene coating used in the interior of a traditional paper cup, the reCup is made using a mineral-based coating known as EarthCoating.
The coating contains half of the plastic content and disintegrates quickly in the recycling process, allowing paper cups to become valuable materials for recyclers to collect and recycle.
In addition to its work in the U.S. with reCup, CupPrint introduced the reCup product to the European custom printed paper cup manufacturing market.
We’re proud to be a sustainable pioneer. We’ve enjoyed working alongside Smart Planet to share a printed paper cup option engineered to be universally recyclable.
Our sustainability standards are top of the line – and we plan to maintain these eco-friendly morals.
