These 16oz cups were the perfect size to use for serving beer at an outdoor event. They're the perfect thickness, meaning they feel sturdy and not cheap.

these are some really nice plastic cups. they're good for cold beverages only. the really nice thing is that they are compostable so they will biodegrade or you can put it in your compost heap.

These cups are great for beer at a large party if you don't want lots of beer bottles in pictures. They hold a 12 oz beer with room to spare--and there's still space for an orange wedge. Green and good quality (they don't easily crack like many traditional plastic cups).


Good cups. Sturdy but expensive as with any compostable product is. It was hard to get customers to understand that these were compostable. Recommend having that be predominate on the units

from Secret spot on

I have purchased these cups for our nutrition club as we are going green. We absolutely love the cups, However, just tell your customers in the hot sun they will Melt because they're biodegradable. Will continue to purchase.


The cups are really nice and a great price for being eco-friendly. Please note, these cups are not truly 16 oz. They are the 16/18 oz. I confirmed this by checking the manufacturing number with Fabri-Kal's spec sheet. When I filled the cup to the rim, it actually measured 20 oz. This extra 2-4 oz makes a HUGE difference in cost - especially if you are advertising and serving 16 oz cups filled to the rim.


I use these with Fabri-Kal GC16S Greenware 16 oz. Compostable Clear Lids. Not much to say about cups or lids, both are good products. Good for the environment. My wife and I use them on our food truck for horchata or whipped coffee drinks. If you're looking for a change, these are worth at least a try.


Perfect eco-friendly cups for our food truck. We always try to reduce our carbon footprint but we need disposables, so this is a great balance!

from Runaway Kitchen on

These cups are amazing! They are made from plants, are compostable and BPA free. The best “green” cups we could find that didn’t raise our cost of goods. They are strong like regular plastic cups and we couldn’t tell the difference. We used for our fresh lemonades with fruit in them and customers kept them.

from Alpha Dogs 187 LLC on

These cups are very sturdy and my customers love them. I love how it shows the Heisenberg lemonade in the cup. My customers tell me I should get Earth friendly cups. When I point out to them it is they are shocked.

from Old Town Kokopelli Cafe on

As we work to be a more sustainable company, we switched one of our locations to using these cups, and the customers love them! We do not have the appropriate compost facility here in our city, but knowing that we are using a product that is at least MORE environmentally sustainable is meaningful to us. Now only if they weren't SO much more expensive than the Choice cups *cries a little*

from Cool Beans Coffee/Yellow Dog Coffee Company on

This is a great option to go green. Most places doesn’t allow plastic anymore so this is a great alternative. Very durable and clear like regular plastic cups

from Coffee and tea traders on

A reliable lightweight cold cup. Ideal for coffee shops wanting to cut down on plastic waste. Also they are not too expensive so you do not break the bank

from Samantha's Sweets on

Best possible price for a compostable eco-friendly cup. Cups occasionally come cracked and cracks are hard to see until they are leaking. That being said, only 1 in 100 cups are cracked like this.


Thank you for your review, Matthew! We are sorry this Fabri-Kal Greenware GC16S 16 oz. Customizable Compostable Clear Plastic Cold Cup - 1000/Case has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!

from Sweet Spot Minis on

These disposable cups can take away the guilt of non reusable / single use cups. They hold up as long as you need them to.

from Flying Fish restaurant, Freeport, Bahamas on

Such a great & sturdy cup for our cold drinks. Not only is it a great cold cup, but the price can't be beat! I know I did my research!

from The Deli Llama on

We use these cups for our juices, and they're very attractive and useful! The clear, greenware material caters to both the customers that want to see inside the cup and those interested in sustainable materials.


We love these compostable cold cups! They are sturdy in addition to being compostable. They work so we'll with our slogan: we're saving the world one cups of coffee at a time
