Linstol is set for its new line of recyclable paper ‘Super Cups’ to take off next month in support of the airline industry’s plastic reduction and landfill waste diversion initiatives.
Linstol, a leading supplier of in-flight passenger products for the airline industry, has launched a new line of recyclable paper Super Cups made with EarthCoating® in an effort to optimize storage and combat single use plastics.
Conventional paper hot cups often end up in the landfill or are incinerated because the interior plastic coating is not compatible with conventional paper recycling systems. The Super Cup is made with EarthCoating, using up to 51% less plastic and is designed to be easily pulped back into recycled paper products as part of premium paper recovery and recycling.
In addition, the Super Cup is specifically designed to nest 40% more cups per stack to save on space and make for easy pre and post-usage storage and collection.
“The Super Cup is made with EarthCoating, dramatically reducing the amount of plastic content in a paper cup. The Super Cup is designed to be valuable and easy for recyclers around the world to integrate into their paper recovery and recycling processes. We consider environmental innovation an integral part of Linstol’s core values” said Mark Russell, CEO of Linstol.
Linstol is also working with a closed-loop recycling partner and we hope to launch this initiative by third quarter 2019 for the Super Cup.
Global airlines are now ordering with deliveries beginning in May 2019.
Looking ahead, Linstol anticipates launching cold cups made with EarthCoating as a viable replacement for 100% plastic cups along with a variety of other packaging applications which may be optimized for environmental, economic and performance benefits by using EarthCoating.
