Fully Compostable Cups & Lids
All of our Bristol Twenty cups and lids are fully compostable. Supplied by Edenware, our cups are made from high quality, food grade paperboard and linedwith PLA. A plant-based polylactic acid made from cornstarch, creating a much lower carbon footprint thanks to being plant based. All cup printing is completed using soya based inks, meaning no nasty chemicals are involved in the printing and recycling processes.
Our lids are supplied by Vegware, made from the same plant-based PLA material as our cups, they are heat resistant up to 85 degrees celcius with a tight fit and sleek design. With PLA based products being around 67% lower in carbon than plastic, they make the ideal solution for those wanting to reduce their carbon footprint.
Reusable Coffee Cups
Although our cups and lids are now fully recyclable and compostable, there was a time when only our cups could be recycled. Because of this, we wanted to come up with a solution that would offer the customers of our customers, the chance to reduce the amount of waste generated from disposable cups and lids.
The first wave of reusable travel cups were created with a double wall of plastic and a silicone lid. After many trials with customers, we have found this option to not be as successful as we had hoped.
We have since moved on to an updated reusable travel cup offer, one that is both microwave and dishwasher safe. Our new reusable travel cups are BPA free and made in the UK, cutting down on air freight miles. The updated, reusable travel cups will be available to buy soon through Bristol Twenty, allowing users to save money on drinks at participating coffee outlets and do their bit to cut down on waste.
