Richard Hammond road tests some Polycarbonate Glasses to see if they really live up to their claim of being unbreakable….

SAN Plastic Glasses

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

SAN Reusable Plastic Glasses (styrene acrylonitrile) have good strength and clarity which can withstand dropping but not standing on. SAN Plastic Glasses look like glass and SAN is a tough plastic that can take a lot of heavy usage

This material is used for our reusable stemmed wineglass products in order to achieve a cost effective alternative to our Polycarbonate stemmed wineglasses.

SAN Plastic Glasses are recommended for household or restaurant use. All are dishwasher safe and can withstand temperatures of up to 100C.

Polystyrene Plastic Glasses

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

Polystyrene Reusable Plastic Glasses are an alternative safety glass to the Polycarbonate. These hard walled glasses are ‘rigid’ (which is a round about way of saying they will break, but not easily).

These glasses also appear just like real glass but are cheaper than the real thing. These glasses have been in glass-washers (using a recognised glass detergent such as Finish) in excess of 100 cycles with no noticeable visual detraction. These glasses can withstand temperatures of up to 100C

Basically they don’t last as long as Polycarbonate glasses before becoming marked but will do a similar job, just not for as long a period.

Do not confuse rigid Plastic glasses with EPS glasses (Expanded Polystyrene) which are the very light weight ‘foam’ cups often described as the trade name Styrofoam and usually white in colour. We don’t sell any EPS products, our reasons are explained here.

Event Supplies are delighted to announce that we have now expanded our range of Polycarbonate Reusable Plastic Tumblers and Polystyrene Reusable Plastic Tumblers

Our new ‘Nonic’ shaped tumblers are stackable and come CE marked ready for use with any free flow or metered beer pumps.

safety-glass-pintsafety-glass-half-pint

The polycarbonate plastic pint and half pint beer glasses are practically indestructible whilst the Polystyrene tumblers are rigid and will not shatter, both are machine washable.

These products are commonly used in outdoor drinking venues and many public houses due to their non shatter properties.

Unfortunately the word ‘Glass’ is a verb in this country and Polycarbonate & Polystyrene Safety Drinking  Glasses are becoming a prerequisite for pubs and nightclubs up and down the country…)

Still carrying that cup?

Thursday, December 4th, 2008

On my recent blog ‘Do I really have to carry this cup all day?‘ you may have noticed the slight dig at the bottom of the blog directed towards people using ceramic shaped disposable cups in which I joke that I intend to create a porcelain Tea Bag which can be used with these cups.

Well, it seems there are more companies producing disposable styled reusable products out there than I thought. When leaving for work on a morning with your ceramic ‘paper cup‘ you can now also take with you your reusable thermal sleeve to wrap around your ceramic cup so your fingers do not get burnt! (Why not just bring a mug from home if you are ecologically inclined to avoid disposable cups, doing this ensures there is no need for a porcelain cup and reusable sleeve…)

If the purpose of buying these two products was to avoid looking foolish whilst travelling to/from work with a normal mug in hand then I feel the notion is a little misguided. I imagine I would feel foolish walking into Starbucks and handing over my own mug and sleeve, especially if it was a knitted sleeve or faux furs as cupcouture.com offer!

Cup Couture Wool SleeveCup Couture SleevesReusable Sleeves

Other companies such as Cupkozy.com also offer reusable sleeves made from Felt and numerous garish designs. These can be rolled up and put on your key ring should you wish to advertise your right on green inclinations.

A & R Design offer the below ceramic Non-Vending cups and a Sommelier Wineglass on a stem which is actually quite cool, if not a practical alternative.

Ceramic Non-Vending CupCeramic 'Non vending cup style' WineglassesGlass Non_Vending Cup

I do wonder where this will all end, are porcelain cup carriers on the way? Porcelain stirrers for your coffee? (spoons) Carrying your bag to work with all this gear is going to become tiresome quickly.

Most of these products are unnecessary and their green credentials ring a little hollow when you realize there is no actual need for them in the market when most people have mugs in their cupboards at home and the coffee shops you visit have their own proper cups.

I also think many people carrying all these new green reusable replacements for paper cups and sleeves are forgetting the one product that can eliminate the need for all this garbage. Its called a Flask.

Do I really have to carry this cup all day?

Monday, November 17th, 2008

Much is being made at the moment of the City of Toronto banning paper cups with plastic lids in favour of expanded polystyrene(foam – normally considered the devils material) which the city has the ability to recycle (it cannot recycle plastic lids as most consumers do not separate the lids from the paper cups prior to disposing of them – and they’re not going to do it for you!)

To the amazement of some the city has also said it will ban biodegradable plastic shopping bags in favour of conventional plastic bags as the city cannot recycle the biodegradable bags!)

Many bloggers and social commentators are suggesting coffee drinkers should make use of (carry with them) porcelain or ceramic cups should the need for a coffee arise. The councilors of Toronto are suggesting discounts should be given to customers who bring their own mugs.

Some companies are already doing this and a new market for ceramic ‘paper cups’ without handles has sprung from the idea that people will carry these reusable takeaway style cups at all times.
Before a Starbucks occupied every second corner in New York City, a blue paper cup with a thin sip thru lid was the symbol for coffee-to-go.

The iconic We are happy to serve you paper coffee cup was introduced in 1963, and more than 180 million are used in New York City every year. The environmentally minded design group, exceptionlab, have worked with both the Sweetheart Cup Company, Inc and Aid to Artisans to convert the design from disposable to permanent, from paper to ceramic.

This ceramic version of the paper cup is not the first spin off product to have been given the ‘we are happy to serve you’ treatment, nor is it the first to be created in ceramic. The plain white ‘I am not a Paper Cup‘ ceramic cup made by Decor Craft is available from a slew of websites here and in the US.

Happy to be a watchcoffee_coastershappy not to be a plastic bag

 I expect Anya Hindmarch is probably at home silently kicking herself that she didn’t trademark the ‘I am not a (insert product here)’ phrase following the success of her non disposable carrier bags.

With that in mind we have started work on the ‘I am not a tea bag’, ceramic refillable tea bag (with free reinforced spoon) for use with these non-disposable products. Anybody wishing to invest in this genius project or has any other (comedic) ideas for ceramic versions of disposable products please call us on 0844 499 5456 and we can come up with our masterplan! Muah ha ha ha ha!!
