Recycling your paper cup


Introducing the KLIX Eco Cup - the revolutionary new alternative to plastic-lined paper cups. After years of research and development, we've created the first cup of its kind that doesn't use harmful Polyethylene (PE) lining. Our cup is made with sustainably sourced paper from accredited forests, and coated with a one-of-a-kind water-based dispersion barrier that goes above and beyond the need for a PE-based coating that's commonly used in other paper cups. Finally, a cup that's as eco-friendly as it is functional!

SimplyCup recycling

Save a Cup

UK Vending with Lavazza has teamed up with Simply Cups a not-for-profit organisation that collects and recycles polystyrene (plastic) cups. The recycling scheme offered by Save a Cup allows KLIX customers to recycle their used plastic cups and reduce the amount of waste they send to landfill sites.

How does it work? When a KLIX customer has joined the Save a Cup scheme they simply need to collect all of their used KLIX cups in special recycling bins. Save a Cup will collect the cups from the site on a regular basis and take them to a plastic recycling plant to be turned into useful products such as ice scrapers and cup trays.

Since we with Lavazza helped to form Save a cup over one billion cups. Each year we estimate that around 300 tonnes of KLIX/Flavia cups are recycled and we want to double this figure over the next couple of years.
