That means re|UUSI® cups can be recycled in any paper waste stream and recycled into new paper products.
The re|UUSI®is the first and only recyclable paper cup to be certified at this level.
The Green Dot Standard – issued by Institute cyclos-HTP – is acknowledged as the benchmark throughout Europe for the classification, assessment and certification of recyclability of packaging and goods.
In recent months a number of leading brands have switched to re|UUSI® cups.
Terry Fox, General Manager of CupPrint says: “We’re delighted with the results for re|UUSI® during the tests done as part of the European Green Dot certification, which now opens up new avenues for recyclable paper cups in Europe”.
The re|UUSI® uses a unique liner containing less plastic – nearly 50% less than a standard paper cup.
This mineralised liner aims to break down more easily in appropriate recycling channels.
CupPrint is a Huhtamaki Group company and offers customers a range of paper cup choices.
- Standard PE lined paper cups that are recyclable where facilities exist
- Compostable cups that are compostable in commercial composting facilities (including domestic brown bins in some jurisdictions)
- re|UUSI® recyclable paper cups as detailed above.
Cups are available from quantities as low as 1000 pcs with high resolution custom printing and 15-day delivery.
This fast turnaround and low Minimum Order Quantity means smaller businesses with less storage space can present their brand in a unique and high quality paper cup.
