Aluminum Solo Cup

The solo cup is made by an American company Solo Cup Company. It is always in red color, so sometimes we also call it “red cup“.The red plastic cups are notably used in American college and university games.

Here we are not talking about the plastic solo cup. What we want to talk about is the aluminum solo cup. The difference between these two cups is the material, one is made of recycled aluminum raw material, and the other one is made of plastic. I can not say plastic is good or not, but there is too much plastic around us and it takes decades of years to decompose in the earth.

Aluminum solo cup is more expensive than plastic solo cup for sure. But it is totally green packaging and food safe. The aluminum solo cup can be reused many times or years. If you don’t need it, just throw it in the recycled garbage can. It can be fully recycled many times, making it environmentally friendly and cost-effective.

Solo aluminum cups are durable and lightweight. They can be used to keep cold drinks cold. Solo aluminum cups are perfect for parties, picnics, exhibitions, shows, concerts and so on.
