New improved 7in cutlery

Our new improved 7in biodegradable PSM cutlery is available as of June 1st. The main difference is that we have improved rigidity of the material, giving very sturdy utensils, and substantially beefing up the fork tines.

As always, Vegware cutlery is high-heat resistant, robust, reusable, more stylish and of course much more eco friendly than its plastic counterpart. More information can be found here.

Vegware compostable hot cup lids – version 2.0 released.

Vegware’s new and improved version 2.0 compostable hot drink cup lids are now stock. Our updated material is more supple, which gives a stronger finished product. But don’t take our word for it….

Will Hamlyn of Zincc.com had this to say:

“Our client Rhodes Bakery was keen to follow as green a route as possible with their packaging. I contacted Vegware who supplied us with version 1 of their bio hot cup lids.

There were some initial problems with cracking as a result of the brittle material but Vegware stood by their promise and quickly developed a new version which after testing has proved to be much improved with none of the downsides of the earlier version. The client’s response was ‘Superb, lovely, perfect and great’!

I would happily recommend Vegware to anybody seeking bio packaging combined with a first class service.”

The new lids can be found on the hot cup page of our catalogue

New brown kraft 12oz hot cups

We are pleased to announce the addition of a brown kraft version of our ever-popular compostable hot drink cups. The new cups use the same heavy-weight board as the white version, though the outside surface is uncoated for a natural and stylish look.

Currently, kraft hot cups are available in 12oz sizes, and we can offer the usual run of custom printing. More information can be found on Vegware’s eco hot cup page.

Eco friendly dispenser napkins.

We’d like to announce the arrival of our new dispenser-fold recycled napkins. These are unbleached single ply 32 x 30cm napkins, folded down to 16 x 9cm. They are made in the UK, and have the WRAP ‘Recycle Now’ logo printed on them in water-based ink.

We offer free recycled card dispensers to accompany the napkins, and we think that they offer fantastic value! More information and images can be found here.

Fully compostable hot drink cups and lids!

We’re very proud to say that we got there first! Finally, a fully biodegradable and compostable hot drink cup and lid combination.

Our cups are made from quality heavy-weight paper board, and have a corn starch lining rather than plastic. The matching sip-through lids are made from corn starch in the form of PLA with an additive which makes them heat-stable, though does not affect their environmental credentials.

More information can be found on our hot-cup page.

New compostable packaging – bags and sheets

Our bag range has been extended to include compostable sandwich bags made from PLA. They have a 40 micron white back, and 25 micron clear front, and come in 190x190mm and 260x260mm sizes. We are also offering PLA sheets for food wrapping in medium 300x400ml and large 350x500ml sizes.

In addition, we’ve taken stock of biodegradable greaseproof sheets, and a range of recycled paper carrier bags.
