2.5 billion take-away cups are thrown away every year in the U.K. Wouldn't it be great if we could turn them into paper for artists instead? CupCycling™ by James Cropper is the world’s first recycling process dedicated to upcycling takeaway cups. I’m a huge fan of this idea and I’m so pleased that we’re able to supply these two pads at ARTdiscount.
You might be wondering what the paper quality is like, the CupCycling Cartridge paper shares many of Seawhites All-Media paper attributes. It has phenomenal strength and tear durability and the surface is equipped to cope with an eraser. It has the body and tooth to work well with a huge range of media and techniques. The paper has 80% recycled content and offers the artist the best of all worlds, an amazing product as well as a chance to help the environment.
The pads come gum bound, making it easy to remove pages for easier use. The paper is white, providing a strong clear surface for any media. You can’t go wrong with these recycled sketchpads and with every purchase we’re getting close to reducing waste in the art industry.
We really hope this is an idea that spreads across the art industry; it could and will make a huge difference if people start to sway more towards recycled papers.
