If you are looking for a cool, refreshing drink on the go, disposable cups are the most practical, convenient and hygienic option for serving takeaway cold drinks.
Conventional single-use cold cups like plastic drinking cups, plastic-lined paper milkshake cups, disposable smoothie cups, plastic dessert cup, and plastic water cups are made from fossil fuels. After a short useful life of approximately 20 minutes, conventional disposable cups usually end up in a landfill where it takes decades to breakdown while releasing greenhouse gases in the process.
We offer a range of eco-friendly cold cups suitable for a range of cold beverages – and can even be used to package takeaway muesli, fruit salads and desserts! Our clear bioplastic cups – made from PLA, a plant-based bioplastic – offer a more sustainable alternative to plastic cups. They look and perform just like traditional clear plastic cups with lids when serving cold food and drinks.
The carbon footprint of producing PLA bioplastic is up to 75 percent smaller than conventional plastics such as PET. BioPak eco-friendly single-use cold drink cups are commercially compostable to EN13432 standards and are designed to be part of the circular economy. Composting as an end-of-life solution reduces greenhouse gases, returns nutrients back to the earth and improves soil quality, and costs less than sending waste to landfill.
They are accepted in an increasing number of industrial composting facilities – call us to find out about composting in your local area.
