What is the history of paper cups?
Paper disposable coffee cups were thought to have originated in China in the 2nd century. It was not until around 1908 that an American company invented the first modern disposable cup called the Dixie Cup. Paper cups became extremely popular with the public after a number of health warnings surrounding the use of shared cups and the passing on of diseases. Paper cups are usually lined with a wax coating or a PE plastic coating to prevent leakages.
During the late 20th and early 21st centuries, the protection of the environment has led to the introduction of partial and fully recyclable disposable cups produced from paper sourced sustainable forests. Today the number of coffee paper cups being recycled has risen tenfold. All our paper cups from Discount Coffee are sourced from sustainable forests and we are introducing a range of fully recyclable paper cups.
