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.

The Eco Coffee Journey

Waste Coffee Grounds into landfill is a catalyst for producing methane which is 20 times more damaging to the environment than CO2. By tackling the waste the industry creates at its destination, we are helping deliver a cleaner tomorrow. Eco roasting technology is paving the way forward to creating a cleaner and more sustainable coffee future for us all. See below for the full, closed loop Eco Coffee journey.
Stage 1
We deliver an order of Eco Coffee to a customer
Stage 2
The customer expertly brews a wonderful cup of Eco Coffee
Stage 3
The customer stores the used Eco Coffee grounds in a special repurposed tub/bin
Stage 4
We collect the used grounds (at the same time as delivering the next batch of Eco Coffee to minimise trips) and return the used coffee grounds to our roastery to be dried
Stage 5
The dried coffee grounds get pressed in to a biofuel then that biofuel is used to fuel the innovative eco roaster to roast the next batch of Eco Coffee
Stage 6
The freshly roasted beans are then quality checked and packed in recyclable bags ready for delivery.
