Lined with Ingeo™ bioplastic made from plants, not oil, our coffee cups can be recycled or commercially composted.
Looking for coffee cups online? Not all takeaway coffee cups are created equal. So, if you’re a searching for a more sustainable alternative to traditional paper coffee cups (the kind made from old-growth forests and conventional plastic), try BioPak Single-Wall Hot Cups instead.
Our disposable coffee cups are made from paper sourced from only from certified managed plantations, and a coated with Ingeo™ – a bioplastic made from plants not oil. We use a heavy-duty, premium quality board giving our eco coffee cups superior stability, better lid fit and insulation, plus we print with soy or water-based inks.
Manufacturing a single-wall cup consumes less energy and paper. Transport related emissions will be reduced due to the lower weight and more compact carton size of a single wall cup.
When it comes to biodegradable coffee cups, the term ‘biodegradable’ is often used by marketers in a misleading manner. The claims that a special additive can help conventional plastic 'biodegrade' are unsubstantiated and do not carry independent certification. On the contrary, research shows that these plastics fragment into small pieces but do not actually disappear. Our coffee cups are certified commercially compostable and will completely biodegrade in a commercial compost facility within 120 days.
Our eco friendly coffee cups are commercially compostable which reduces greenhouse gases, returns nutrients back to the earth and improves soil quality, and costs less than sending waste to landfill. Where composting is not an option, many councils recycle coffee cups with other paperboard products. Plus, we offer our own composting service.
