FREE SHIPPING ON ALL PRODUCTS
100% Biodegradable, 100% Compostable. Made from Bamboo Paper with a PLA Lining.
World Centric 12 Ounce NoTree cold cups are made from 100% Bamboo paper with no bleaching, meaning no trees were cut down to make them. Like all of our paper cups, these paper-free cups have a lining made from corn, not petroleum, making them compostable in a commercial composting facility. The use of bamboo paper in place of traditional paper helps preserve our dwindling forests and the wildlife and indigenous communities that rely on them. These disposable cold cups are great for cold beverages like soda, iced tea, and smoothies. Composts in 2 to 4 months in a commercial composting facility. Not microwavable.
Nature Friendly cold cups are also biodegradable and compostable, lined with NatureWorks Ingeo™ polylactic acid (PLA), which is derived from corn grown in the USA. The white colored paper is Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) which means they are bleached without elemental chlorine. Most cups you'll find on the market are lined with polyethylene and wont compost. Ours are compostable.
Cafes, restaurants and cafeterias require paper products for their look, printability and general customer acceptance. Technologically, it's very hard to make something similar to paper cups from alternative fibers. We have found a solution to paper cups and bowls that can be made from a mix of alternative fibers, recycled fibers and responsibly managed wood/paper fibers to create a more sustainable product.
These products are BPI (Biodegradables Product Institute) Certified.
Please note, composting is required for biodegradation. These compostable cups will biodegrade within 30 days in a commercial composting facility, and within 90 days in a home composting system.
Q: What is PLA?
A: Polylactic acid or polylactide (PLA) is a biodegradable, thermoplastic, aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch (in the U.S.) or sugarcanes (rest of world). Although PLA has been known for more than a century, it has only been of commercial interest in recent years, in light of its biodegradability.
