The Green Cup is a Revolutionary, Plastic Free Takeaway Cup
No PET plastic and no PLA. It is the New Generation of Single Use Coffee Cups. Made from paper sourced from sustainably managed forests and accredited by the Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) It is coated with a Unique Water Based Dispersion Barrier, which bypasses the need for PET or PLA plastic coatings used in most other takeaway cups. The Green Cup features a blend of natural and synthetic polymers, similar to components within binding agents in coated papers, which means it can be recycled in the same way as newspaper and cereal boxes.
The Green Cup will Biodegrade naturally within approximately 190 days. Because it is made from Biodegradable paper board and a water based barrier, it will not harm the environment even if it isn’t recycled or disposed of properly. PLA compostable cups need commercially composting and because there are very few commercial facilities which can do this, the vast majority don’t actually get composted.
