    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.

    Fabri Kal cups are BPA free and customizable and compostable! 50 comes in a pack. Feel good about using them ! They are green and functional! 4 stars!

    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).

    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.
    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!
    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.
    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.
    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*
    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
    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
    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!
    LOVE LOVE LOVE these cups! Use on our Food trailer for our cold drinks. They are super sturdy, Eco friendly and we can attach our own logo sticker to them. They are perfect. Just what we were looking for.
    These disposable cups can take away the guilt of non reusable / single use cups. They hold up as long as you need them to.
    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!
    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
    Pretty cup for to-go cold drinks. We put drizzle on our frozen drinks and you can see it through the clear cup, which looks great and the customers love it!
    The Fabri-Kal Greenware GC16S 16 oz. Customizable Compostable Clear Plastic Cold Cup once again are wonderful. They serve the same purpose as the non-compostable ones, but help us leave less of a footprint.
