Biopac produces custom branded eco friendly tumblers for SIBA

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

Biopac and the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) have once again joined forces to produce a branded tumbler specifically for use by SIBA members.

PLA Tumblers are made from renewable cornstarch, so the tumbler is 100% compostable and can be disposed of by industrial composting. They are printed with 'I am not a plastic cup', giving a clear message about your commitment to the environment. Both half pint and pint sizes carry the government approved CE marking, allowing you to use free-flow pumps.

Mark Brigden, Technical Director at Biopac said, “Our PLA Tumblers offer the same durability and aesthetic appeal as plastic tumblers but are kinder to the environment. They can be composted and broken down completely in less than 12 weeks, compared to conventional plastics which can take 400 years to break down.”

The tumblers are branded with the SIBA logo together with a statement stating the green credentials of the tumbler.

Sara Knox from SIBA National said, “It is our responsibility as the voice of the independent brewing sector to support our members to find eco friendly, high quality and affordable products in which to serve their beer. We buy Biopac's 'I am not a plastic cup' tumblers, printed with our logo and encourage our members to do the same. It's important we work together to help reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.”
