Recycling Coffee Cups - Is it possible?

Ivan Leitch

 

With so many people becoming more aware of their impact on the natural world around us one of the big questions asked is can you recycle single use coffee cups?

It is commonly believed, and reported in the media, that you can’t because they are paper outers lined with plastic. With some 2.5 billion cups bought and thrown away every year in the UK alone it has become a major threat to the environment.

Imagine our joy to discover that specialist paper provider James Cropper is proving that belief to be wrong.

Merging the latest advances in sustainability with the creativity of the art industry James Cropper have worked with Seawhite of Brighton to produce a quality new cartridge paper made from 80% recycled coffee cups.

James Cropper’s CupCyclingTM facility is a world first and to date has recycled over 100 million cups. However, they have the capacity to convert up to 500 million cups per year into papers and packaging. Partnerships with companies such as Seawhite of Brighton prove that circular design has a firm place and presents a viable option in many industries.

 So why not create your art on this beautiful paper and then come to London Bookbinding to have it bound into a handmade cover, using sustainably sourced or recyclable materials, to create the ultimate environmentally friendly portfolio.
