Hot drink cups have become part of our daily life. The advent of coffee shops led to a much higher percentage of people starting to drink their coffee and other hot beverages on the go. As a result, the number of hot cups disposed of every year has increased considerably.
In order for a traditional hot cup to be able to carry the hot liquid, it has to contain a lining made out of petroleum. This lining insulates and protects the paper cup, making it impermeable.
The problem is that producing and consuming plastic products has a huge impact on the environment. It contributes to global warming and increases the littering of our oceans with plastic, posing a great threat to marine life.
Luckily there’s a greener, petroleum-free alternative for these cups.
Biodegradable Hot Cups look and feel the same as the traditional ones but are made out of renewable resources.
Lined with a high-heat Polylactic Acid (PLA) coating made from plant extracts such as corn starch, tapioca roots, and sugarcane, our biodegradable printed hot cups have been designed and developed to be fully biodegradable and compostable.
Long term sustainability policies are a requirement for every successful business these days.
In fact, if you start supplying biodegradable/compostable double-wall cups, you are essentially sending an important message to your customers – that you care about more than just making a profit.
This message, in turn, will earn you the respect of your customers. The fact that you are aware and care about the issues facing our environment will result in a greater appreciation and loyalty towards your brand and your business.
Using the eco-friendly version of hot beverage cups and other disposable food containers is just one way to help our environment. And in this case, regardless of how small the step may be, it will certainly make a big difference.
