Eco Copo e Eco Palhinha

Todos sabemos as consequencias no uso de artigos descartaveis (pratos, copos, palhinhas ..)  e os efeitos na poluição dos Oceanos e consequente destruição de habitats.

 

Em 2017 foi realizado um estudo em que se  estima que anualmente na União Europeia (28 estados-membros) são consumidos:

 

46 mil milhões de garrafas de plástico
16 mil milhões de copos de plástico
2,5 mil milhões de embalagens de take-away
36,4 mil milhões de palhinhas.

580 mil milhões de beatas

 

Em Portugal os números também são altamente preocupantes:

 

721 milhões de garrafas de plástico
259 milhões de copos de café
1 milhar de milhões de palhinhas
40 milhões de embalagens de fast food
10 mil milhões de beatas de cigarro

HERE'S THE PROBLEM

Quite simply, traditional paper cups are not designed to be recycled — and recyclers are not set up to process them. These cups are just too difficult to run through their existing paper recycling equipment due to a 100% polyethylene (plastic) coating on the inside of the cup. This coating can't be processed efficiently and would clog their machines — so recyclers simply won't accept this material.

WE HAVE THE SOLUTION

A reEco™ cup is made the way a paper cup should have been made from the start — with recycling in mind. As a result, the reEco™ cup can be easily repulped into recycled paper using existing paper recycling equipment.

Instead of asking the recycling industry to deal with plastic-coated paper cups that are not recyclable, we've created the reEco™cup, paper cups produced using an alternative barrier coating called EarthCoating®.

EarthCoating® is a barrier coating made up of minerals and plastic which makes reEco™ cups valuable to collect and profitable to recycle.

Additionally, choosing reEco™ cups doesn't mean sacrificing function or profit margins.

reCUPs look and function like traditional cups and are made the same way... except for one MAJOR difference — 

reEco™ Cups are engineered to be recyclable.
