Here at Stephensons catering equipment suppliers, we supply a range of biodegradable plastic glasses.
Plastic glassware has become a feature of everyday life. However, given the volume of use, the disposal of these products, can pose a disposal problem. Recycling products would be ideal, but there are insufficient recycling plants available to deal with the majority of thin walled plastics produced and it is also expensive to collect and reprocess them.
These disposable plastic glasses are manufactured with a cellulose additive which, once the glasses are disposed of, initiates the degradation process. The active ingredient enhances the compostibility of the plastic, which is broken down by the common bacteria found in the soil or landfill when combined with heat and moisture.
These biodegradable glasses begin the degradation process as soon as they come into contact with heat, moisture and bacteria. Total disintegration will take place within two years. Traditional plastic glasses take several decades before they start to degrade and even longer before they disintegrate.
Despite their ability to biodegrade, some scientists have suggested that oxo-biodegradable products may leave microplastic residue behind after the disintegration process. For this reason,
Stephensons do not suggest that these products are used as an eco-friendly alternative to plastic pint glasses. For a green, enviornmentally friendly product that will 100% biodegrade in industrial composting, please view our range of PLA Tumblers.
In addition to biodegradable plastic glasses, we also stock and supply an extensive range of other plastic glassware.
