Fresh into our warehouse today are the new Bamboo compostable paper cups. As the name suggests these are made from Bamboo instead of paperboard, there are several notable advantages to this. The most obvious is that Bamboo is more easily renewable than the fast-growing birch used for traditional paper cups, this is due to the speed at which the plant grows. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet with a peak growth speed of 4cm an hour; this makes it the ultimate in sustainable raw material.
The cups themselves are a mixed design with 4 distinct but coordinated neutral prints; each pack contains a random selection of these.
As with the rest of our environmentally friendly biodegradable range of cups, these feature a PLA lining instead of the plastic PE coating used on traditional cups. This makes them a fantastic choice for customers wishing to switch to biodegradable / compostable disposables.
Samples are available on request; get in touch with our team for more information. You can find our bamboo paper cups on our site at: https://innsupplies.com/biodegradable/biodegradable-paper-cups
Our ever-expanding range of biodegradable disposables now includes an option for biodegradable smoothie cups. These are made from a cornstarch based material and comply with all relevant standards for biodegradability.
The products themselves all have the same rim diameter, meaning that one lid size fits all. It’s important to note that this is a different lid size to our existing disposable (PET) smoothie cups. The new cups take a new 96mm, which we supply as either a flat or a domed style. This can be beneficial to customers using multiple sizes as they only need to stock a single lid size.
In terms of strength the new biodegradable smoothie cups are very similar to our existing range, they’re resistant to cracking and have a smooth glossy finish.
Sizes available include 9oz, 12oz, 16oz and 20oz to suit most requirements. As usual these are available in small packs of 50 or full boxes of 1,000.
