100% Paper Cup
We all lead busy lives so it’s natural that grabbing a coffee on the go has become so popular. However, due to a shortage of recycling points for the single-use cups that coffee shops often use, a staggering 2.5bn coffee cups end up in landfill each year.
To help stop this waste, we’ve developed a unique, innovative, and 100% plastic free recyclable eco-cup. This UK first can be recycled in regular paper and card waste streams, making it easier than ever before to lessen our impact on the planet by leaving single-use in the past.

No Plastic Journey
Every year in the UK, we send 18 million tonnes of waste to landfill, much of which is plastic. Plastic can take up to 500 years to decompose, and much of it, such as plastic water bottles, is classed as ‘single use’.
We’re looking at all the plastic we use at rijo42, and are cutting it out wherever we can. We now use compostable and cardboard packing as much as possible. Our ultimate aim is to get to a point where we use no new plastic materials at all, and we’re already a good way into our journey.
Many of us these days lead busy lives, and like to grab a coffee on the move. If you’ve installed one of our ‘coffee on the go’ machines, then we’re delighted to say that our cups are to become fully recyclable. Many disposable hot drinks cups have a thin layer of plastic inside to help seal them, meaning they’re not fully biodegradable.
In 2019, we’re trialling cups with a lining made from a new material that will break down completely, allowing you to dispose of used cups in standard paper recycling bins.
