The New Generation of Compostable Cups

The New Generation of Compostable Cups

Now is the time to change. With many companies turning to eco-friendly product options, single-use cups are becoming a thing of the past. The promotional marketing industry is pathing the way with alternatives like these compostable plastic (PLA) cups.

But why should you choose these cups and not glass or paper?

  1. Traditional plastic glasses can be difficult to recycle
  2. Reusable glasses are not cost effect or practical for large events
  3. Paper cups look better but are usually laminated with single-use plastic
