Reusable Drinkware? Yes Please!
Plastic, whether you love it or hate it has revolutionised the way we live our lives in this modern age. Invented by Belgian chemist Leo Baekeland in 1907, plastic has been the material of choice for everything from appliances, drinking cups, water bottles, shopping bags, all the way to the dashboard of the car.
Its lightweight properties and ability to be moulded or blown into shape has made it a cheap and reliable option for production over many industries. Plastic has come under some scrutiny in the last few decades with the growing amount of plastic pollution in our oceans and its inability to break down quickly, all these issues being addressed by chemists as there really isn’t an alternative now. There have been improvements made to its biodegradability and the world population has become more aware of how we dispose of our plastic containers. This has given cause to the rise of the recycle culture. People are now preferring the use of reusable drinkware over disposable cups.
There are many different types of plastics - Polyethylene, Polyvinyl, Polypropylene and Polycarbonate, just to name a few. The drinkware industry has traditionally used Polypropylene (PET) in the manufacture of plastic disposable cups. The problem has always existed that cups that aren’t disposable have been light and flimsy and didn’t deliver on drinking experience. This has created an opportunity in the industry to manufacture plastic drinking glasses that look and feel more like glass. D-Still Drinkware have brought to the market a range of drinkware that uses Polycarbonate, is ultra-tough, safe to use and can be recycled once it’s reached the end of its working life.
Here at D-Still Drinkware, we have a product that has similar properties to glass in look and feel, but also has incredible durability. So much so that we guarantee our product against breaking and chipping. The stigma of using plastic drinkware for entertaining has been revolutionised.
No more flimsy glasses spilling or being blown over by the wind, or the worry of small children handling breakable glass. Our range covers the full gamut of everything you could ever need for every entertaining occasion!
