Our Story and the Adoption of the Bio Paper Cup

Printed Paper CupsOur pursuit of sustainable products! Why, and how did we get to bio paper cups? Get all the answers here!

Everyone may ponder our persistence with paper cup innovations. We aim to contribute to businesses’ growth via convenient and eco-conscious products. Early on, we grasped how a mere coffee cup could impact the environment, health, and a business’ image at ago.

The environmental mess left by disposable paper cups and single-use plastic is depressing. Marine life is at risk, and our water bodies; full of chemicals. As messy as the situation is, we haven’t lost the war against climatic change.

We have an environment to protect, lives to live, and businesses to grow. Everyone can contribute to reducing climatic change. It’s time we fight for a safer and cleaner planet for us and future generations.

At Scyphus we are a practical lot. We do our best to reduce the pressure on the planet, cut down toxicity, and support the economy. Our concern is global. Today, there’s over 165 tonnes of plastic in our oceans. With no action, plastic waste may outweigh the fish population by 2050. 

We started bio paper cups to champion a greener and a safer coffee cup. We aim to promote eco-conscious brands through the use of sustainable products. Eco-conscious brands can pull more customers. And that can help to increase the use of sustainable products.

Our Journey to a Bio Paper Cup

Why the Convenient and Flexible Paper Cup?

How did we arrive at bio paper cups? Going green may seem like a battle against overwhelming odds, but it’s possible. Baby steps to sustainability are accessible to everyone. Start, and every next step will become more comfortable than expected.

Paper cups have undergone a series of exciting evolutions. First, the paper cup was soggy and smelly, while plastic use was the real deal. The earliest paper cup had a clay coating. Yes! Within minutes of serving, your tasty latte picked a clayish smell!

When launching, we wanted an alternative to single-use plastic. Our idea was to provide a convenient coffee cup. That is, to create something customers would find irresistible, and all brands could access.

The reasoning behind convenience was to overcome reusable cups’ problems. It’s clear; customers struggle to carry their reusable containers everywhere.

With the known coffee obsession, the market yearned for a key-lock solution. And a bio paper cup is the answer.

Why? Paper is biodegradable and light. Its designing flexibility is a massive boon for customisations.

Polyethene: a Curse in Disguise

The primary problem with the paper cup has always been its coating. After the clay coating, the industry moved to a polyethene film (PE). PE was a magical solution for paper cups manufacturers. It’s cheap, sturdy, waterproof, and flexible.

PE has dominated the paper cup industry from the 1950s. Too bad, its strengths turned into an environmental curse. Its sturdiness means it can take a thousand years to degrade. Meanwhile, it’s low cost led to overproduction and extreme demand in many industries. Thus, the current uncontrollable plastic waste.

Packaging innovations lagged after the PE invention, thus the mess before us today. People also veered away from alternatives such as styrofoam and porcelain. Besides their higher cost, their health risks are far worse than plastic.

Drifting to a Bio Paper Cup

With the evils of polyethene plain, the industry had to come with a safer alternative. Environmental campaigns and government legislations signalled a brighter future for the paper cup. The only paper cup’s problem was its coating.

PE coating is non-biodegradable. While it’s recyclable, separating it from the paper cup calls for a unique process. The lining gets tightly bonded to the cup during manufacture, thus the difficulty in recycling.

By 2015, the UK, Germany, France and Italy used over 8 billion disposable paper cups per year. Given 90% of disposable cups didn’t go to a recycling plant, these numbers are terrifying.

Birth of a Bio Paper Cup 

We realised a bio-based coating could end many of the polyethene problems. Thus shifted to a bio paper cup. A bio paper cup has a polylactic lining (PLA). The PLA coating comes from renewable materials such as corn starch and sugar cane pulp.

The bio paper cup is a win-win for everyone in the paper cup industry. Its benefits suit the environment, businesses and the customer.

For the environment, the bio paper cup solves all the disposable paper cup’s problem. It can compost and turn into macronutrients essential for the soil’s health. You can now enjoy coffee guilt-free. The paper cup won’t hurt the environment, and it’s risk-free to your health.

For businesses, shifting to a bio paper cup is more about eco branding and responsibility. Brands enjoy a platform not accessible by everyone. They can influence climatic change through their extensive reach. Their direct access to the customer is a big advantage.

It shows moral uprightness for a brand to adopt eco-friendly products. By a good chance, increased customers’ environmental awareness pushes more brands towards sustainable products.

For the businesses lagging, playing catch up may be detrimental to their bottom line. More customers now prefer transacting with sustainable and responsible brands.

Adopting the Bio Paper Cup

For us, the bio paper cup is a valuable asset to reduce waste, please the customer and support businesses. More businesses on our side mean more bio paper cups used and less waste in the environment.

Our fulfilment is to see your business reach the enviable status of a sustainable brand. It inspires us to witness your brand going green and championing an end to global warming.

Today, we are sure building a green reputation is the key to business success. First, there’s self-satisfaction accrued from your efforts to protect the climate. Second, you’ve got a leg up over your competitors. You can attract more customers and grow your business.

Bio paper cups also mean a happier customer. Who wouldn’t enjoy coffee from a compostable and a safe bio cup? The idea you can dump a coffee cup into the backyard compost pit and turn it into garden manure is so fascinating.

Bio paper cup is a stage in our quest for sustainable products. We will continue to pursue more ideas for the cleanest planet.

Our printed Paper Cups are environment friendly, they are GREEN

When folks think about paper cups, they visualise trees being cut for paper, they typically visualise that old oak in the field, the birds, the squirrels, and even worst, the depleting rainforests, the rising global temperatures.

We at scyphus solely obtain our papers for our printed paper cups, only from FSC and PEFC accreditec mills, these mills are accredited by responsible monitoring organisations like FSC and PEFC and thus can be assumed to be following all sustainable forestry practices that help us keep the planet green.

But the fact is that currently there are managed tree farms, places where trees are grown as a crop for lumbering, these monitered farms keep planting trees similar to how a farmer plants new seeds after that season's harvest. only that in case of those massive trees, this harvesting cycle is usually over twenty years.

The activities of these farms and all that is happening to our forests is monitored by some credible Not for Profit organizations like FSC and PEFC. Organisations that certify and monitor these farms and their method of harvesting and replanting and maintaining the inexperienced cover.

We are green and we urge you to question your Paper Cups
company that whether they obtain their raw material from
licensed mills only or not.

Before you place the order for your Paper Cups, tailor-made to augment brand visibility, check if its the best quality out there.
