New Biodegradable Ripple Paper Cups

Friday, September 14th, 2018

Due to the increase in popularity of our biodegradable range of cups we’ve introduced a new insulated version to the range. Just like the rest of our biodegradable cups they feature a PLA lining made from cornstarch. This is a sustainable and eco-friendly lining that allows the cups to break down completely when composted; they feature no plastic inner lining.

Other than the change of process used to line the cup, the only visible difference between these and the regular disposable PE lined cups is the “ingeo” branding and eco-friendly message around the bottom of the cup. The cups themselves provide the same great insulation, designed specifically for hot drinks (black tea, coffee,  etc.).

These biodegradable cups take the same sized lids as our standard cup ranges, meaning you can choose to use our compostable cPLA lids or the regular plastic variety.

All sizes are available immediately from stock. Please see our range of biodegradable paper cups: http://www.eventsupplies.co.uk/product_listing,7,197,Biodegradable_Paper_Cups.html

Biodegradable insulated double wall paper cups

Monday, August 6th, 2018

biodegradable double wall paper cupsAs part of our efforts to cater for customers requiring a biodegradable alternative to disposables, we’ve launched a new range of paper cups. These feature a PLA (Polylactic Acid) inner coating that is completely biodegradable.

Previously if you wanted a biodegradable paper cup you would need to use a single wall item with a sleeve if necessary for the extra insulation. The vast majority of compostable / biodegradable paper cups available in the UK are only single wall. We’re now offering a double wall alternative, this means no extra sleeves required and the same high levels of insulation.

Our range of eco double wall cups take the same standardised lid sizes are the rest of our disposable coffee cup range, 80mm for the smaller (8oz) cups and 90mm for the larger (10oz+) cups.

Samples are available on request – please get in touch with our sales team for more information.

What are Biodegradable Paper Cups?

Friday, January 19th, 2018

biodegradable paper cupsWe carry a range of biodegradable paper cups; the difference between these and the regular range of disposable cups boils down to the material used for the inner lining. All paper cups used in the UK feature some sort of inner lining, this is what gives the cup the ability to hold liquids. Without this lining the cup would absorb water and disintegrate halfway through drinking your morning Coffee!

Traditionally disposable cups use a PE (Polyethylene) lining for this purpose, our range of biodegradable paper cups use PLA (Polylactic acid) instead.  This is a natural substance derived from corn starch, it is not oil based.

Biodegradable cups featuring this corn starch PLA coating can be composted at any suitable facility and they will break down completely naturally.

We also stock matching lids for these cups made from CPLA, again these are 100% compostable items and are not oil based.

Our range of biodegradable cups currently includes hot drinks cups in 4,8,12 and 16oz sizes. We also stock biodegradable soup cups in 8, 12 and 16oz sizes, again with matching compostable lids available.

Our biodegradable paper cups are can be found at: http://www.eventsupplies.co.uk/product_listing,38,197,Biodegradable_Paper_Cups.html, biodegradable soup cups are on our site at: http://www.eventsupplies.co.uk/product_listing,38,198,Biodegradable_Soup_Cups.html. Samples are available on request

INGEO Biodegradable Paper Cups

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

In order to offer our customers a complete biodegradable solution to disposable catering supplies, we’ve introduced the eco-friendly range of “INGEO” paper cups.

You can recycle any of our standard range of single wall or insulted cups, but the biodegradable cups are also completely compostable. Unlike our existing range of hot drink cups which feature a PE (Polyethylene) lining, these cups use a single Poly(lactic acid) or polylactide (PLA) coating instead. The raw material is derived from completely renewable corn starch, this is ethically sourced to have no impact on food prices or supply.

All of our biodegradable paper cups carry the INGEO biodegradable/compostable logo on a plain white cup. Specifically sourced oxo-biodegradable lids are also available to fit 8-16oz sizes.
