Polycarbonate 12oz reusable hot drink cups

BBP--2278214717-RT-(2)bBrand new in today are our new high quality reusable hot drink cups, these are a classic porcelain mug style and designed to mimic the appearance of a regular cup.

We’re stocking this item as a high gloss white colour or a completely clear variety; designed primarily for fruit teas and other specialty drinks. Both are the most popular 12oz / 350ml capacity so great for either commercial or home use. Due to their sturdy polycarbonate construction they’re also ideal for use on the go, such as in the caravan or at the beach.

Polycarbonate has a huge advantage over traditional ceramic or porcelain mugs, strength. For all intents and purposes these reusable glasses are nearly indestructible. They can be dropped onto a hard surface, stepped on or crushed and they won’t break. Polycarbonate is also a great insulator so cups remain comfortable to hold, they don’t get too hot to hold under normal use.

These items are available from stock straight away as full boxes of 24; visit our reusable coffee cups category for more information at:  https://innsupplies.com/reusable/polycarbonate-coffee-cups

 

Bamboo Coffee Cups – Why Use Bamboo?

You may have noticed that we’ve received launched a brand new range of Bamboo coffee cups, available as either a standard single-wall cup or an insulated “ultimate” coffee cup. We’ve had lots of questions about this new range of cups, the most obvious asking why the sudden change to Bamboo when disposable cups have been traditionally made from paper for so long (originally developed in 1907 as the “Dixie Cup”.

The benefits of using Bamboo as a replacement for virgin grade paperboard are numerous. Although we only source paperboard from renewable and sustainable sources, there’s no getting away from the fact that the raw material comes from forestry. Since 2018 there has been a huge focus for the developed world being as ecologically responsible as possible. Trees are an important part of our ecosystem; however Bamboo can actually be used as an alternative raw material.

Bamboo is an amazingly fast growing grass; it requires no fertilizer and regenerates from its own roots. Compared with sustainable forestry of quick growing Birchwood for example, Bamboo grows many times faster resulting in a much better yield.

Bamboo cups are fully compostable when made using the PLA (cornstarch) lining we use for our range of cups – this means they break down completely when sent to an appropriate facility. There are no plastics left behind and no contaminants. These have proved to be enormous benefits with the ever increasing focus on sustainability and waste management.

Both ranges of Bamboo cups carry a distinctive and vibrant print, samples of which are available on request. We also stock completely biodegradable / compostable plastic lids to fit these cups for a completely eco-friendly solution.
