A Green cup of Coffee please ….. at Applegreen!


Nationwide Forecourt retailers, Applegreen has reinforced its green credentials, in announcing that from July the brand will replace all non-recyclable single-use cups in stores with a new 100% recyclable cup created by reCUP.
Customers had the opportunity to get to grips with the new 100% recyclable cups when they were unveiled at last week’s Taste of Dublin 2018 in the Iveagh Gardens, as Applegreen took on the role as Official Coffee Partner of Ireland’s premier food and drink festival.
Applegreen has partnered with reCUP to introduce the first commercially available paper cup that uses Earth Coating, a fully recyclable lining engineered to be processed easily through traditional paper recycling equipment and to be recycled into new paper products.
Speaking at the announcement Conor Lucey Head of Operations at Applegreen Plc commented: “At Applegreen we are extremely passionate about reducing our impact on the environment. Every day in Ireland, approximately two million paper coffee cups are being diverted to landfills because the interior plastic coating makes them very difficult to recycle. We are delighted to be able to make the switch and play our part in reducing non-recyclable waste.”
