Frugalpac recently announced that it has developed a recyclable paperboard coffee cup that can help cut down on the amount of waste attributed to disposable cups. While paperboard coffee cups are a convenient take-out solution, these non-recyclable cups contribute to a great deal of waste. Now there may be a new option for brands interested in reducing coffee cup waste.

The new paperboard coffee cups designed by Frugalpac are made from recycled paper that can be reused by paper recycling mills. Unlike ordinary coffee cups, the recyclable paperboard cups feature a thin plastic liner that is free from added chemicals and only lightly glued in place. This design allows the liner to be separated from the cup during the recycling process so that the cup can be recycled.

Both cost-effective and eco-friendly, Frugalpac's new cups could be the solution to reducing coffee cup waste worldwide.
