Benders Paper Cups has welcomed a poll which found support for drinks packaged in
recyclable, paper-based materials.
A UK poll commissioned by the Confederation of Paper Industries found that over half of people surveyed said they preferred to purchase drinks packaging in recyclable, paper-based materials, with 60% believing that their choice to shop for PEFC-labelled products makes a positive difference to the world’s forests.
The vending industry appears to be on a path to conversion from plastic to paper cups.
Benders said the results showed that these packaging choices should be a core consideration for companies, as they have a positive effect on consumers’ purchasing decisions.
Adrian Pratt, marketing manager at Benders Paper Cups, said the company wanted to push into the hotel, restaurant and catering companies sector.
“We will continue to develop our vending cup range, and promoting paper as the vending cup material of choice,” he said.
All Benders cups are manufactured using paperboard from PEFC-accredited, sustainably managed forests and full Chain of Custody accreditation.
