Disposable Cups (shells) with one or more holes in the bottom so air will escape when liquid is poured in the liner and will fill to the cup’s capacity. Shells are made from uncoated recycled paper and printed with renewable compostable ink. Food only contacts the virgin liner so there is no issue with the type of recycled paper used. Liners can be made from LDPE or compostable film. Cup shells with liners will be made in factories and delivered to stores ready to use. Liners are attached with a “stick and peel” adhesive. A visible tab on the liner lets the user “zip it off” after the contents are emptied, separate the two parts and put each in its designated reuse receptacle. Outer dimensions of shells will closely match a company’s current cups to use standard sized sleeves and lids which can be plastic or made from a compostable material depending on available infrastructure. A parallel process to manually insert and attach removable liners into shells should enable store owners to use the system in markets that cannot be supported by a supply chain from a factory that produces shells with liners. The same method could be used with reusable shells to save costs and further reduce recyclable shell volume in stores where customers eat in.
