The Green Cup – PLA Free & PET Plastic Free
Takeaway coffee cups were traditionally lined with PET Plastic derived from fossil fuels. These are mostly recyclable, but in reality only a small number actually get recycled, which creates a big increase in the consumption of single use plastics. For this reason many businesses moved on to PLA lined compostable cups.
However, many people aren’t aware that although PLA is a plant based and is compostable, it needs collecting and commercially composting, which means that the vast majority don’t get composted.
Our Green Cups are…
- Free from PET Plastic and PLA
- 100% Recyclable, they will go into your paper and cardboard recycling
- 100% Biodegradable
And unlike PET and PLA lined cups, if our cups did end up in landfill they would decompose within approximately 190 days, leaving no chemicals and no negative impact on the environment.
