In a bar, café, restaurant or club environment, there are times when glass isn’t the right material for serving drinks. Whether it’s an outside space or a busy dancefloor, broken glass can cause all sorts of problems. Plus constant broken glasses mean a need to replace them at a cost to the business. That’s why it might be a better idea to opt for plastic glasses instead.
Plastic glasses are durable and hard-wearing, can be re-used just like glass, and come at a fraction of the cost. They are also much safer to use than real glass in certain situations. For large events such as festivals, plastic is by far the more sensible choice, and in some occasions may be required by law or conditions of business.
Plastic glasses come in all shapes and sizes, mostly corresponding to those available in regular glass. That means you can get plastic pint glasses, wine glasses, tumblers, hi balls and more. There are several types of plastic glass available, each with its own benefits in certain situations. For example, polycarbonate glasses mean you don’t have to cut back on style. They are clean, durable and safe, making them perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. Polystyrene glasses come in a selection of functional styles. They are not disposable but are rigid and can last up to 100 washes.
For some events it might be more convenient to use disposable plastic glasses. Again, these come in a range of sizes and styles, from pint glasses to shot glasses. However, you don’t need to worry about plastic use as they are all fully compostable or recyclable, so you can limit your impact. You can even get a selection of coloured plastic glasses according to your design style.
So, if you’ve decided that plastic is the right material for some or all of your set up, browse our comprehensive selection of plastic glasses. With all the leading brand names, design styles and sizes, you’ll find everything you need for a durable and cost-effective service.
