Polystyrene Ban: What You Need to Know

The UK government has announced that it will be introducing a ban on single-use plastics in 2023, which includes a focus on polystyrene food packaging. This is a significant step in reducing waste and protecting the environment. In this blog post, we will discuss the upcoming polystyrene ban and introduce you to the Paper Cups Direct Bagasse Range of takeaway packaging.


Switching to Bagasse Packaging

At Paper Cups Direct, we offer a range of Bagasse takeaway packaging that is a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to polystyrene. Bagasse is made from the waste fiber left over after sugarcane has been pressed for juice, making it a renewable and eco-friendly material.


Benefits of Bagasse Takeaway Packaging

  • Biodegradable and Compostable: Bagasse is biodegradable and can be composted naturally by bacteria and other microorganisms. This makes it a sustainable option compared to polystyrene, which takes hundreds of years to decompose.
  • Sturdy and Durable: Bagasse is a sturdy material that can hold hot and cold food without getting soggy or losing its shape. This makes it an excellent choice for takeout restaurants and food trucks.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Switching to Bagasse takeaway packaging shows your commitment to sustainability and the environment. This can help you attract eco-conscious customers and make a positive impact on the environment.
