Lavazza Professional has introduced the new KLIX Eco Cup, a truly sustainable solution for hot drinks and the first of its kind in the vending industry. The cup is biodegradable and recyclable with normal paper waste, because it is constructed of a patented water-based dispersion barrier board, manufactured by Koktamills, and PEFC accredited paper, sourced from sustainably managed forests. The cup is produced by Benders.
The KLIX Eco Cup can be recycled into paper waste up to seven times and a Life Cycle Assessment, conducted by WSP, states that using the new cup ’reduces environmental impacts by almost 2/3 compared to a standard paper cup’
Lavazza Professional’s range of KLIX machines already leads the workplace drinks market with sustainability features such as low energy and standby modes and efficient boiler systems, which heat just enough water to precisely the right temperature. The machines are manufactured in the company’s ISO 14001-certified UK factory.
“Completely dedicated to the workplace, and now with the new KLIX Eco Cup, Lavazza Professional offers a truly sustainable, hassle-free vending system” said Ashley Weller, UK Market Director, Lavazza Professional UK. “We have always been passionate about supporting our customers on their own individual sustainability journeys. We are therefore pioneering a breakthrough, sustainable solution in the vending world. Our commitment is clear but we hope that other businesses will also increasingly play an active role, because strength is in numbers. We encourage the big players in the market to explore similar solutions in order to boost the rate of recycling for this type of cup.”
The new KLIX Eco Cup will be available from February 2020 in the KLIX Momentum and Outlook machines, starting with some of the most popular drinks, followed by a progressive roll out plan across 2020, dramatically reducing Lavazza Professional’s use of plastic.
