City of Industry, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
As discussion of global warming heats up in recent years, the issue of environmental awareness has not only been gaining media coverage but has also become the target of government regulations. Cities such as Seattle, Washington and Richmond, California have enacted bans prohibiting the use of non-compostable disposable foodservice containers. 100% compostable PLA paper products, such as PLA paper yogurt cups and PLA paper hot cups, are no longer just a green statement. It is not only a conscious choice by foodservice entrepreneurs to lessen the environmental impact and a way to brand their business, but also becoming a necessity for many.
CarryOutSupplies.com reaffirms its goal to increase usage of 100% compostable products in foodservice industry by expanding its customizable paper product line to include custom PLA paper yogurt cups, custom PLA paper hot cups and custom PLA paper containers. CarryOutSupplies.com's PLA paper products offer the following advantages:
● BPI® certified 100% compostable
● Free custom printing service
● Custom design printed with food grade soy ink
● Made with US FDA approved paper
● Faster turnaround time
● Lower minimum order quantity
"We're always trying to tackle issues and obstacles from the vantage point of our customers in order to see what solutions would make the most sense for our customers whether they are mom and pop stores or large franchises. We believe this is not only sound business practice to retain customer loyalty, but also our business philosophy," noted Waylon Huang, Vice President of Operations at CarryOutSupplies.com. "We estimate that there are at least 300 million paper yogurt cups and billions more paper coffee cups used in the US in 2011. A vast majority of these paper cups are not 100% compostable and do end up in our landfills. We aim to change this and stay ahead of local municipal regulations by first making PLA paper products more affordable and more widely accessible. And secondly by educating and encouraging our clients to recycle our non-compostable PE lined paper cups."
In the last few years the recycling industry has made great strides towards giving life back to used bi-material products as reusable basic material. A point Mr. Huang emphasizes is PE lined paper products are wrongly thought to be unrecyclable, but can in fact be a green option as well. According to recyclecartons.com, many communities across 40 states now have programs that offer curbside pick up of PE lined paper products. Compostable disposable products like PLA cups are a great option for those that live in communities that do not yet have curbside recycling programs. For those that do, active participation in a recycling program can prove just as environmental friendly.
Added Huang: "We find that having custom printed cups is increasingly becoming a necessity for frozen yogurt shops to be competitive. With our custom PLA paper yogurt cups our clients can showcase their brand and be green at the same time. We're adhering to our tradition of offering more for less. As with our other custom printed take out supplies, our custom printing service with custom PLA paper products is still free. We are hoping to become the driving force behind the industry's transition to green product solutions.”
