#1 Eco-friendly takeaway packaging checklist for new cafes
Opening a new café is daunting enough without having to scroll through hundreds of items which, let’s be honest, look almost the same. So how do you decide what packaging you need for your new café?
Our customers come to us for advice all the time, so we’ve developed this article to provide some top tips to café first timers.
This article will give you a guide on both the quantities you should be thinking about for your first order, as well as the most popular beverage and food packaging items our customers love to use. And of course, everything on this list is eco-friendly!
- HOT BEVERAGES
Whether it’s tea or coffee, the popular Art Series eco-friendly biocups will make your hot beverages look amazing.
- 1000 x 8 ounce single wall “Art Series” biocups
- 1000 x 12 ounce single wall “Art Series” biocups
- 1000 x 16 ounce single wall "Art Series" biocups
- 3000 x PLA large lid (these are a flat lid, not a sipper lid - we sell these also. One size fits the 8, 12 and 16 ounce biocups)

- COLD BEVERAGES
Cold cups are perfect for smoothies, juice, iced teas and iced coffees and frappachinos!
