Linstol licenses EarthCoating from Smart Planet Technologies for its Super Cup offering for airline industry

May 18, 2018 - 02:23

NEWPORT BEACH, CA, May 10, 2018 (Press Release) -Linstol, a leading distributor for the airline cabin product industry, has completed a license agreement from Smart Planet Technologies, to use EarthCoating in Linstol’s new “Super Cup” paper cup offering for the airline industry.

Airlines across the industry strive to meet sustainability objectives to reduce disposable packaging waste, and improve recycling rates in its operations. Globally, disposable paper coffee cups are known to be particularly difficult to recycle because of the polyethylene plastic coating on the interior. Therefore, paper cups have been typically sorted to be disposed of in landfills. It is estimated that 15 billion coffee cups wind up in US landfills annually.

Linstol’s Super Cup, uses EarthCoating in its interior, a coating that is fully-compatible with traditional paper recycling systems, thereby the “Super Cup” is a paper cup that is designed to be recycled universally, while containing 43% less plastic content than a traditional paper cup.

The Super Cup is designed with a smaller storage footprint, with a 40% reduction in storage space, and allowing more cups per sleeve.

The features of the Super Cup make it a very attractive and cost-effective eco-friendly offering for the airline industry, and a demonstration by an airline to its passengers of the airline’s commitment to improve the sustainability of its operations. Linstol CEO, Mark Russell, states “Helping reduce our airline partners’ environmental footprint is an initiative that is at the core of who Linstol is.”
