New partnership allows customers to go the extra Mile on recycling

FRUGALPAC has announced it has teamed up with recycling specialist First Mile to offer customers an ‘inclusive’ service for its Frugal Cup product.

Customers can now participate in First Mile’s recycling post-back service, RecycleBox. Those ordering any two cases of Frugal Cups will automatically be offered the service, where they can put their used cups back in the same box in which they were delivered, to be collected by First Mile’s courier network.

Frugal Cup is described as the world’s only recyclable paper cup made from recycled paper.  The cups comprises 96% recycled paperboard with a 4% food-grade polythene liner. With no waterproofing chemicals, Frugalpac said the liner separates easily in the standard recycling process.

Bruce Bratley, First Mile founder and CEO said, “It’s great to be working with Frugalpac, providing a credible recycling solution for its Frugal Cup customers. Frugalpac’s commitment to strong environmental performance is clear to see, and by using RecycleBox, its Frugal Cups will live to see another day when transformed into future paper products.”

George Rumble, Frugalpac’s sales manager added, “We’re extremely proud to enter the new decade partnering with First Mile. Its innovative post-back service, RecycleBox, offers our growing number of UK-wide customers the perfect solution, ensuring their Frugal Cups are collected and recycled. Each Frugal Cup already contains 96% recycled content, the only one of its kind to stimulate demand for paper recycling. Partnering with First Mile to recycle Frugal Cups again and again, enables our customers to play their part in a circular economy.”
