As we head into spring and wrap up winter, we see more and more companies embracing sustainable practices, particularly when it comes to plastic.
We’ve got some major companies moving toward more eco-friendly initiatives. As an eco-friendly branded to-go cup company, we love to see others caring for the earth.
Dunkin Donuts recently announced that they were shifting their printed paper cup materials from polystyrene foam to a double-walled paper cup. This comes as an effort to reduce the company’s carbon footprint as the foam material tends to decompose at a slow rate.
This attribute can be harmful to wildlife.
McDonald’s is taking similar action, vowing to eliminate foam from their packaging by replacing foam cups with fiber- based branded paper cups. The company will begin to implement the new initiative by the end of this year.
And that’s not all the company has in store. Within two years, or by 2020, they plan to overhaul all of their foam-based materials.
And in England, initiatives such as WRAP’s are helping business to consider the benefits of improving the wide-use of plastic. Those interested in becoming involved in their mission to cut plastic pollution, can sign up here.
The Paper Cup Recycling and Recovery Group, otherwise known as the PCRRG, is working toward a similar goal. PCRRG studies the paper cup supply chain to determine where waste might be decreased. They are drawing attention to the sustainability issue surrounding printed paper cups.
We’re certainly working on making our impact.
In other news, common causes tend to bring people together and so does coffee. Just last month, this person took a mugger for a coffee after the mugger attempted to steal a wallet from an individual.
So a little compassion really does go a long way.
We love coffee so much and the printed paper cups that accompany the beverage. But let’s not forget our passion for ice cream and ice cream cups too.
Though we do love ice cream, we are not planning to put it on fire anytime soon.
Hot meet cold. Cold meet hot.
Branded cups – whether they be branded coffee cups or branded ice cream cups – offer the perfect promo opportunity. Consider CupPrint for your branded cups – no need to worry about large order minimums and long lead times. Don’t bother investing in a custom printed stamp and the time it takes to mark each individual paper cup with it.
Oh, and skip the sleeves too because we’ve got the answer… custom printed cups, 1,000 unit order minimum, 14 days lead time.
