Plastic Cups With Lids

And people ask about Reusable Cups With Lids.

Why Plastic Cups With Lids?

Lids make give added functionally to your cups. Probably the first thing that comes to mind is that lids either limit or prevent spillage. Beyond that they turn your cup into a container.

Cups with lids turned container can be used for food storage in a refrigerator or cooler, to hold dry soups to be later filled with hot water for consumption, filled with water and frozen to be used in a cooler or, if you add food color, decorative ice blocks.

And the lids make excellent insect barriers where fruit juices or other attractive things draw the unwanted.

When it comes down to it, if you are going to get plastic cups, get the lids with them.

Do Plastic Cups Benefit The Environment?

That depends on the type plastic cups that you get. Single use plastic cups are NOT environmental friendly.  But reusable plastic cups are extremely beneficial.

Single use plastic cups, and if they have them, their lids and straws end up either in landfills or every other inconceivable place. Because they do not decompose, they cause more damage than paper cups.

Reusable plastic cups, their lids and reusable straws, on the other hand last, last and last some more. They are recyclable so they avoid the landfills for a long time.

So if you are concerned about the environment, buy and use reusable plastic cups.  And for the most useful type, get those with lids.
