DETROIT, APRIL 22, 2023 - Up PaintTM (www.uppaint.com), the world’s first upcycled paint company, is excited to announce the launch of its new product, the Up BoxTM (patent pending), on Earth Day 2023. The Up BoxTM is a first-of-its-kind solution for responsible recycling of post-consumer water-based paint, providing a sustainable alternative to traditional paint disposal methods combined with an innovative “upcycling” program. As a testament to the company’s innovation, Up PaintTM has been awarded “Best Inventions” by Time Magazine and named “Most Innovative Companies” by Fast Company.
Each year in the US over 85 million gallons of paint goes unused. Most of it is either incinerated or relegated to landfills. Currently, over 90% of homes have left over paint with no easy way to deal with it responsibly. The Up BoxTM offers an easy and fast solution by shipping any unwanted latex or acrylic paint directly to Up PaintTM.
Each Up BoxTM comes in a variety of sizes, including 1 gallon, 2 gallons, 4 gallons, 5 gallons, or 4 quarts, and is specifically designed to fit each type of paint container. The Up BoxTM comes as a “kit,” complete with lid securing clips, packing tape, and a prepaid shipping label for easy return of post-consumer paint.
All viable paint received in an Up BoxTM will be recycled and turned into new paint, making it a truly circular supply chain. Once the kit is received, every component from the lid securing clips to the box itself is recycled.
In addition to its environmentally friendly design, Up BoxTM also participates in a zero-carbon offset program. Furthermore, each Up BoxTM purchase provides consumers with a discount on new Up PaintTM purchases as part of a circular supply chain.
"We are beyond excited to introduce the Up BoxTM to the market," said Dustin Martin, CEO of Up PaintTM. "Our team has worked tirelessly to create a product that is both convenient for consumers as well as a sustainable solution for preserving our environment. We believe the Up BoxTM is a game-changer in the paint industry, and we are excited to offer our customers an opportunity to participate in a new circular supply chain for paint."
Up PaintTM is committed to creating a more sustainable future and believes that the Up BoxTM is just the beginning. As the company continues to grow, it intends to launch several more innovative, earth-kind solutions for the paint industry.
The Up BoxTM is available for purchase now on the Up PaintTM website. To learn more about Up PaintTM and its commitment to sustainability, visit www.uppaint.com.
