Green to Go: Tips for Choosing the Best Biodegradable Beverage Takeaway Bag

May 15, 2023

Beverages such as coffee, milk tea, lemonade, tea, and juice are an essential part of our daily lives. In various situations, we may rely on takeaway bags to conveniently carry these drinks, such as when walking back to the office with a cup of coffee to prevent spills and burns. Additionally, takeaway bags make it easier to carry multiple items, such as documents, at once without straining our hands. 

However, it is crucial to recognize that the use of traditional takeaway bags contributes to the plastic waste problem, which harms the environment and wildlife. The good news is that we can still enjoy the convenience of takeaway bags while making a positive impact by going green.


Why Choose Biodegradable Plastic Beverage Takeaway Bags?


Choosing biodegradable and eco-friendly takeaway bags is an excellent way to reduce our impact on the environment. These bags are made from materials that decompose naturally over time, without leaving behind harmful microplastics or toxins. This not only helps to reduce plastic waste but also minimizes the negative impact on the environment and wildlife.

In addition to their biodegradability, biodegradable plastic beverage takeaway bags often have other benefits as well. For example, they may also be designed to be more durable and resistant to tearing or leaking, reducing the risk of spills and leaks during transport.


So How to Choose the Best Biodegradable Plastic Beverage Takeaway Bag?


Choose 100% Biodegradable Plastic Beverage Takeaway bag


When it comes to choosing the right bags for beverage takeaway, it's important to opt for those that are 100% biodegradable. While some bags may be labeled as "biodegradable," they may not be fully biodegradable, meaning they can still contribute to the plastic waste problem.


Some biodegradable bags are only partially biodegradable, meaning they require certain conditions, such as high temperatures or specific microbes, to fully break down.


In contrast, 100% biodegradable bags are made from materials that are designed to break down naturally over time, without leaving behind harmful microplastics or toxins.


Choose the Right Size


Choosing the right size of the beverage takeaway bag is important to avoid spills and reduce plastic waste. Using bags that are too small or too large can lead to unnecessary use of materials. Selecting the appropriate size is crucial for both convenience and sustainability.


Here I list some popular sizes for your reference. These are some recommended sizes for regular beverage cups, but keep in mind that they may vary depending on the brand and type of cup. To prevent spills, it's crucial to choose a bag size that fits your cup snugly. If you have unique requirements, UPPBIO can design a custom size that best suits your needs.





Choose Leak-proof Bags


Have you ever had the experience of using a paper bag or a non-leakproof plastic bag to pack coffee, only to have the coffee accidentally spill out of the cup, soaking the bag and causing the coffee to leak out of the bag, ultimately staining your clothes? I have had this unpleasant experience myself, and it was terrible.

That's why it's so important to choose leak-proof takeaway bags to prevent such mishaps from happening.


Choose Bags with Wide handles


The wide handle design of our takeaway bags ensures that you can carry them comfortably without worrying about pinching your hands. We want every user to have a pleasant experience, whether they are carrying a drink or a cup of coffee.


Choose Tear-resistance Bags


The beverage cup bags need to be extra thick and food-grade, providing increased durability, resistance, and strength for transporting drinks. The tear-resistance bags can be confidently used for transportation via car, bus, or subway.


It is understood that situations may arise where a bag break can cause embarrassment due to spilled drinks while in a hurry. The takeaway bags need to be designed to be puncture-resistant, reducing the risk of accidental spills caused by straw punctures. With this feature, clothes are less likely to be stained even in the event of an accidental spill.


Choose a Takeaway Box with a Secure Seal


When using a beverage carrier bag for delivery, it is crucial to ensure that the bottom seal is both strong and secure. This is especially important if you are on the go, as it will help to keep the coffee or beverage inside intact, preventing any spills or leaks.

Even in the event of an accidental spill, the bag will contain the liquid and prevent it from leaking out, thus avoiding any potential stains on your clothes.
