How do you get from a coffee cup.....to a sundial?

The process of producing are house names and numbers is UK based, from collecting the cups, to re-manufacture and eventual reuse, so the whole recycling loop is completed here on our shores. There is little point in putting items out for recycling if we all don’t actively look at ways of re-using the material in a useful, functional and positive way.

Recycled products not only save on landfill; one house name can equate to a bin liner full of coffee cups; but recycled coffee cup material has around half the carbon footprint of virgin material.

So far, together with our other ECO home and garden products we've all managed to save over 5 million coffee cups from landfill that is enough to fill something really quite massive!

Do a little - change a lot

Step One

At work place your used coffee cup in the recycling bin.

Step Two

Your cup will be collected, cleaned and shredded.

Step Three

This shredded compound is then heated and injected under high pressure into thin strips. These strips are then sliced into small pellets, ready for use on a wide range of manufacturing processes.

Step Four

Under high pressure thousands of pellets are squashed between two very hot presses. After a short while the pellets have been fused together to form large flat workable sheets.

Step Five

These sheets are then sanded, cut, cleaned, printed on and then assembled into a variety of lovely products for us all to enjoy.

Step Six

The entire nation goes out and buys 5 or 6 of these new and clever recycled products for all their friends and family.

Recycling

Recycled products not only save on landfill; one set of placemats equates to a bin liner full of coffee cups; but recycled coffee cup material has around half the carbon footprint of virgin materials.

Recycling isn't just one process, it's a series of processes that starts with us all collecting and sending our waste for recycling, something we have all got a lot better at. To fully 'recycle' we must all get into the habit of then actually using those products made from the materials we have made an effort to recycle. Importantly it's all about closing the recycling loop.
