The Elite range of plastic glassware is made from tough, transparent polycarbonate material, which has superior strength over other plastic materials and is virtually unbreakable https://www.plasticglassware.co.uk/elite-plasticglassware/.

These plastic glasses are break resistant and reusable. They have great clarity and are made from materials that look much like glass, with a premium quality finish.

Plastic glasses made from polycarbonate plastic can withstand heavy usage, they would be an ideal choice for busy bars, restaurants, pubs and nightclubs as all the dangers associated with breakable glass are eliminated.

Plastic glasses made from polystyrene plastic have a very similar appearance to polycarbonate plastic glasses; however, polystyrene plastic glasses are not shatterproof. https://www.plasticglassware.co.uk/econ/

Polystyrene plastic glasses are made from crystal polystyrene material. These plastic glasses are rigid and robust, just like polycarbonate plastic glasses but they may break if it they are dropped on a hard surface or if they have a considerable amount of pressure applied to them, for example, if they are stood on.

For many people, how a drink tastes are typically as a result of its temperature.  Most people may think that a normal glass will keep their drink colder for longer however, surprisingly this not the case.

Plastic glasses made from polycarbonate plastic have excellent insulation properties.  They will keep cold drinks colder and hot drinks hotter for longer than normal glassware.

Within our polycarbonate plastic glassware range we have a collection of hot drinks glasses https://cateringproductsdirect.co.uk/product-category/bbp/polycarbonate/hot-drinks-polycarbonate/ plastic coffee cups and plastic latte cups.

The global war on single use plastic is no secret. We all need to act to help, improve and maintain the environment. Being less wasteful and more efficient is a good start.

Both our Econ Polystyrene and Elite Polycarbonate ranges of plastic glassware are 100% reusable.

When they eventually come to the end of their very long life, they are ground into pellets and remanufactured into further goods within other industries. This makes all of our products 100% recyclable.

Polycarbonate plastic is virtually unbreakable so tends to last for years because it doesn’t smash when dropped, unlike glass. This is great from a health and safety point of view, a product longevity point of view and a green point of view. Broken glass generally goes in the bin, then onto landfill which is detrimental to the environment.

Plastic, if used in the correct manner can be very environmentally friendly.
