Cups going green

The Paper Cup Company is working with Green Earth Appeal to offset their carbon footprint produced by manufacturing paper cups by planting a single tree for every 1,000 printed cups sold.  The Green Earth Appeal is one of only 48 tree planting partners to the United Nations Environment Programme.

The Paper Cup Company produce printed paper cups for the UK and across the globe. The Green Cup is a single wall hot cup, made from high quality material. For just 99p per 1000 cups, the Green Earth Appeal will plant a single tree which will replace the paper used in the manufacturing of the printed cups. The customer will then receive a certificate showing how many trees have been planted to offset their carbon footprint. They can also use the Green Earth Appeal branding (as well as the Save-a-Cup logo) on their paper cups, which will show their own customers that they are being a responsible company. The Paper Cup Company began supporting Green Earth Appeal’s plant a tree scheme in April 2011.

Mark Woodward, Sales Director at The Paper Cup Company commented, “We are all very excited to be able to offer this to our customers and give something back to the environment. We look forward to rolling it out across all of our UK based customers in the coming year.
