DISPOSABLE CUPS BUYING GUIDE
What material is used to make disposable cups?
There are several materials used to make our selection of disposable cups. Our disposable coffee cups are made with poly-lined paper to prevent leaks. Our plastic cups, on the other hand, are made using two different materials: PET and PLA. PET is a durable, flexible plastic that is one of the most commonly used in the world, while PLA plastic is made from renewable materials like corn starch.
What size disposable cup do I need?
If you’re running a coffee shop or restaurant, it’s wise to have a wide variety of disposable cup sizes. We recommend using anything from 8oz cups – which are great for beverage samples and espressos – to 32oz cups. Despite 32oz cups sounding like potential overkill, customer sales numbers indicate that consumers are not shy about getting the largest drinks that cafes and restaurants have to offer.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why is there a disposable cup shortage?
The clearest cause of the disposable cup shortage is continued supply chain issues as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, other factors have made the shortage more severe, such as the increased demand for carryout business and domestic paper mill labor shortages.
Are disposable cups safe?
Disposable cups are typically safer because of their materials. Unlike ceramics and glass drinkware, paper and plastic cups are lightweight and won’t shatter, which can create harmful hazards. Paper cups can also be thrown away safely, whereas glass and other heavier materials make for unsafe and wasteful garbage.
What is the benefit of disposable cups?
Disposable coffee cups have several distinct benefits. For one, they are decidedly cheaper to customize and order than glassware and ceramic drinkware. They are also typically safer to use in business and restaurant settings, as they are lightweight and do not cause breaking hazards like glassware. Most importantly, custom disposable coffee cups are easy and convenient to take on the go.
Which disposable cup is best for the environment?
PLA eco-friendly cups are the safest overall for the environment. PLA plastic is made from renewable resources like corn starch. With either a full PLA plastic build or only PLA interior lining, these cups are able to break down safely via commercial composting.
Are paper cups hygienic?
Paper cups definitively help to promote good hygiene. In fact, one of the first disposable paper cups to be mass-produced was created as a safety precaution to prevent the spread of germs.
