Reduce plastic. Increase recycling rates. Decrease trash costs. The first step to getting paper cups and paper-based barrier packaging recycled is to make them valuable and easy for recyclers to process through their conventional recycling equipment. Pureco offers a new line of paper reCUPs, popcorn tubs, food trays, and bags made with EarthCoating, an innovative coating alternative to polyethylene that uses 51 percent less plastic and makes the postconsumer packaging easy for recyclers to pulp into recycled paper products. Unlike poly-coated paper cups and paper-based barrier packaging that end up in our landfills and oceans, packaging made with EarthCoating can be closed-loop collected, sold to recyclers, and used to decrease trash hauling costs. Together we can do our part for the environment by making smarter use of materials.
