Our compostable coffee cups make it easier for coffee vendors to be green and help combat the coffee cup crisis. The cups break down in less than 12 weeks in industrial composting and are lined with plant-based PLA instead of plastic, with 72% less carbon.
A switch to compostable recycling would be a better ecological choice than other means of recycling, considering that the UK exports 70% of its paper and 66% of its plastic for recycling. However, due to issues such as food contamination there’s no exact figures on the quantities being recycled once abroad. Compostable packaging benefits as it can be recycled together with food waste.
