Our biodegradable and compostable cold cups are made from NatureWorks polylactic acid (PLA), which is derived from corn grown in the USA. Our cups meet the most stringent scientific requirements for biodegradability and compostability, and are ASTM D6400-99 certified for “compostable plastics”. Even though they are as light and strong as plastic, they fully biodegrade when composted. Our cups:
- Are biodegradable for drinks below 110F
- Need stored below 110F and away from heat, hot surfaces and direct sunlight
To distinguish our cups from plastic ones in municiple recycling/composting facilities, the phrases “Bicompostable” and “This cup is made from corn and is 100% compostable” are printed on the side.
Instead of using petroleum based plastics which create toxicity and environmental pollution, you can now use our compostable alternatives.
Please note that composting is required for biodegradation. These cups will biodegrade within 180 days in a commercial composting facility but can take up to a year or more to biodegrade in a home composting system.
