Sustainable Takeaway Cups - Options for Your Business

Over the last few years, there’s been a big shift in the Hospitality Industry when it comes to sustainability. From the straw ban across Australia and New Zealand to the limiting of plastic food packaging, keeping up with this changing landscape is critical when it comes to your business.

All these new laws mean that your customers are often expecting to see more environmentally friendly options when they walk in your door. Plus, according to a 2018 report by the National Restaurant Association, 50% of hospitality customers are more likely to return to businesses that give them a more sustainable choice.

So, what’s a good option for you and your business when looking at sustainability?

When it comes to the world of the coffee, Australia and New Zealand enjoy 2.7 million cups a day. The coffee business is a big one for us – and only continues to grow – so finding a better option to the standard take-away coffee cup just makes sense.

Lightweight and durable paper cups with bio-plastic linings (such as polylactic acid) are a great alternative to the standard disposal cup. Unlike a plastic lined takeaway cup, PLA (polylactic acid) can break down in industrial facilities under specific conditions. As the cups are also made from wood pulp paper this means that they’re also a part of a circular economy – they’re made from renewable materials and compostable after use.

With your customers now more environmentally savvy than ever before, they’re expecting better options when they walk through your door. Sustain’s takeaway hot cups are a great choice for you and your customers.

So, if you’re looking for a stylish, durable, and sustainable alternative to the takeaway coffee cup to offer your customers – you’ve found it.
