New disposable plastics legislation: Solution reusable cups and containers

Solution reusable cups and trays

LCA study most sustainable reusable cup

Abolishing the disposable coffee cup, it may be the hottest topic of conversation at the coffee machine right now. And that has everything to do with the laws and regulations surrounding the elimination of "single use plastics" (SUP). This means that a reusable cup will become the norm in the workplace. And of course Retulp welcomes this wholeheartedly because single-use is outrageous: mission indisposable.

In the Netherlands, 5 million coffee cups are thrown away every day. In the search for the most sustainable coffee cup, the KoffiebekerPact came into being: a collaboration between 67 parties who researched what the most sustainable reusable cup is. This research shows that there is strong support among users for the introduction of reusable cups. On June 27, Retulp attended the launch of the report during the Coffee Cup Knowledge Festival in cooperation with PHI Factory and Facility Management Netherlands.

Retulp cup best tested for office

From the test, 2 heavy PP cups emerged as the best including the Travelcup from Retulp. These have high drinking comfort, good dishwasher washability and low environmental impact. A glass cup emerged as a good number two. For to go, stainless steel cups the bottles are the most durable as these products have by far the longest lifespan.
