Disposable plastic pint and half pint glasses are a mainstay of the festival scene through the summer months, you’ll see these everywhere from beer tents to bars at event sites, or even used for soft drinks.
Typically these glasses are vacuum formed Polypropylene plastic, this gives them great flexibility and it’s where their name “flexi glasses” is derived from. This is by design so the product cannot shatter into multiple pieces; it aids site clean-ups and is good for safety reasons too. Once disposed of the glasses can be compacted and take up minimal space.
Although Polypropylene can be easily recycled by any plastic recycling plant in the UK, it’s becoming increasingly common that disposable glasses at event sites need to be made from a biodegradable material rather than just a recyclable plastic. For this reason we’ve launched a new range of PLA biodegradable plastic pint and half pint glasses. These are made from PLA, a cornstarch based raw material and contain no plastics.
Where a mandate is in place to use a biodegradable product these glasses are ideal. The bar / venue etc can continue to use a disposable item where a ban on single use plastics is in place. Alternatively, there are plenty of customers who wish to use only biodegradable items for their own reasons – these items give you an alternative to the usual Polypropylene flexi glasses.
We offer these new glasses in all the popular flexi glasses sizes:
- 10oz (half pint to brim)
- 12oz (half pint to line
- 20oz (pint to brim)
- 22oz (pint to line)
These are CE stamped and approved in the UK by weights & measures, samples available on request.
