Cup2paper award winner ‘Samen veranderen’

MVO Netherlands and energy company Eneco declared Biological Solutions the winner of the Facebook-competition ‘Samen veranderen’ (Change together). This enables Biological Solutions, the supplier of bio-based and recycled content disposables together with its coalition partner SITA a starring worth € 2,500 in the next edition of the eponymous film series, which will be screened for the first time on Sustainability Day, on 10 October 2013.

Sustainable disposable cup
Biological Solutions developed the sustainable disposable Cup2paper together with waste company SITA. Cup2paper has arguably the lowest environmental impact of all disposable cups. Compared to recycling of plastic cups Cup2paper also scored 47 percent better, according to a life cycle analysis performed by Partners for Innovation and IVAM. SITA is responsible for the collection and recycling of the Cup2paper-cups and thus closes the chain.

Circular thinking
The jury motivated its choice as follows: “Cup2paper is a fine example of circular thinking; the concept does not stop at a cradle2cradle design, but is innovative because the entire production is arranged differently. With Cup2paper, Biological Solutions en SITA demonstrate a smart use of resources and demonstrate a creative implementation of ecodesign.”
