4 Aces, the cup and packaging specialist, has added to its environmentally friendly range of products with the launch of PLA (a bio-based plastic made from renewable materials) hot cups.

4 Aces has launched the PLA hot cups as part of a pledge to provide a wider range of green options in 2018. The PLA hot cups, which are available in 8oz, 12oz and 16oz, provide an alternative to single and double wall cups.

David Blake, sales director of 4 Aces, commented: “We want to provide added value to our customers by giving them more options and this involves widening the selection of products available that could enable them to reduce their environmental impact.

“Sustainable packaging is very much back on the public agenda and consumers are far more savvy and informed about issues related to the environment. There is a great public spirit that is driving the industry; the end-users most definitely want cups and packaging that are made from sustainable materials and renewable resources.”
