The New Eco Cups For Klix Coffee Vending Machines
Lavazza Professional has come through for our sustainability minded customers by introducing the new Klix Eco cup, which can be recycled with your waste paper, to replace the old plastic disposable coffee cups!
A Vending Cup Like No Other
We know how much you love your Klix machine.....delicious hot & cold drinks & reliability that is unmatched and now you will be able to add environmentally friendly to the list! Lavazza Professional has come through for our sustainability minded customers by introducing the new Klix Eco cup, which can be recycled with your waste paper, to replace the old plastic disposable coffee cups!
This paper cup is made from paper sustainably sourced from managed forest and is easily recyclable due to its lack of undesirable Polyethylene lining which makes it the first of its kind amongst commercial coffee machines. You no longer have to worry about the plastic cups from you coffee and tea machine ending up breaking down over thousands of years in a landfill.
So How Is It Made Exactly?
The combination of paperboard and water based barrier technology means that the Klix Eco Cup breaks down in a way that doesn't harm the environment if its not put in for recycling because of its biodegradibility. The cup is made with paper sourced from sustainable forests and coated with a special water based dispertion barrier that bypasses the need for the polyethlene coating that is so environmentally unsound.
The patented technology uses a blend of natural and synthetic polymers that is similar to pigment coated paper so these cups can go straight it your normal paper waste for recycling! The Klix Eco cups have been rigorously tested to ensure that they are up to the job of keeping your hot drinks leak free.
Excellent Environmental Credentials
Switching to the Klix Eco cup reduces your environmental footprint over 63%!
If you are currently using a kettle then you could improve your office coffee station footprint even more. Over 68%.
Lavazza Professional has had the method of determing the product life-cycle independently evaluated to ensure transparenacy.
When Will They Be Available?
Currently the Klix Eco cup is only available for the Nescafe Gold Blend 7oz Coffee White and Coffee White With Sugar but over the course of 2020 the rest of the range upgrades will be gradually rolled out and is projected to be completed by the start of 2021. So expect your favourite Klix drink to be a sustainable option soon.
Are They Available For Every Klix Machine?
Almost all. Please be aware that the Eco Cup is not currently compatible with Klix 450 machines. Lavazza Professional's intention is that the incompatibilty will be resolved by the end of 2020. however for the time being we recommend that customers currently ordering these two drinks with a K450 switch to our range of Kenco Smooth Coffees.
An Important Note For Users
To avoid cup jams you must let the plastic cups deplete before you put in the new Klix Eco cups. You must never insert them on top of one another.
