Whether you own a gym, a shop or even an office there is always the need for people to rehydrate. Usually, they do so at the water cooler using plastic cups. These, however, are slowly dying out and with good reason – plastic is bad for the environment and because the water cooler produces so much of it people have come to appreciate cone paper cups more. These are just what they sound like – paper cups that are made out of coated paper and shaped in the form of a cone. Apart from being better for the environment because they can be recycled, they are also cheaper because they don’t have a flat bottom.
Cone paper cups are not only used in business settings; ice cream vendors are using them to sell ice cream and they are also used to sell sweets. There is no reason why you cannot buy these cups for a party in your home – they will leave a much smaller carbon footprint than paper cups.
Another argument that has been made for cone paper cups is the fact that they are less likely to be left lying around. Once you drink out of them you crush them and throw them in a waste paper basket next to the cooler leaving for a cleaner and tidier water cooler area.
There are many manufacturers of cone paper cups in the UK but this does not mean that you buy from the first one that you come across. You should be very careful when choosing manufacturers if you want to wind up with the right cups at a price that you can afford. To start with, make sure that the vendor that you buy from has cone paper cups of the right quality – if the wrong type of material is used the cups will crumble at the slightest pressure. Ask them to send you cups of different sizes for you to sample before you buy.
It is also important that you choose a manufacturer who can brand your cups with your logo; the more people see your logo the more they are likely to buy from you. Lead time also matters a great deal – you don’t want to choose a manufacture who takes more than a day or two to fulfill your order.
