Frugalpac says it has created the first coffee cup that can be easily and completely recycled
Unlike other paper coffee cups, Frugal Cups are made from recycled paperboard with no waterproofing chemicals. Standard paper coffee cups are harder to recycle because they are produced from plastic-coated virgin paperboard, according to the company. That material does not break down easily when recycled. Another difference is that the parts of the Frugal Cup – the outer layer and the liner – are easy to separate during the recycling process.
The cups are already in production (they come in four colours – including polka dots) and can be ordered from the company.
