But have you ever thought what happens to all the paper cups afterwards?
Sadly, all too often, they end up in landfill sites.
Despite largely being made of paper, takeaway coffee cups are lined with plastic. This plastic is pretty stuck on and tricky to separate from the paper. And as a result, the cups are hard to recycle.
Our Sustain™ compostable and biodegradable coffee cups present a solution to this recycling dilemma… they biodegrade into compost!
Our Quick Cup Facts:
√ 100% compostable and biodegradable
√ Made from plants – including the lining!
√ Choose from white or brown kraft for an eco look – or opt for your own bespoke design!

Pick your biodegradable coffee cups…
Single walled cups vs. double wall cups: Single wall cups have one layer of paper. Double wall cups have two layers – offering extra insulation when you’re holding a cup filled with a hot drink!

What biodegradable coffee cups tell your customers…
Offering biodegradable cups says that your business wants to:
√ Protect the planet’s resources
Your biodegradable coffee cups are made of renewable resources – plants that re-grow! Even the inner lining is made of bio-plastic, a plastic that’s made from corn.
Regular paper cups are different – they’re lined with oil-based plastic. Oil is finite and reserves are running low.
√ Curb waste
Many regular paper cups end their days in landfill. They’re rarely recycled because their plastic lining is so stuck to the paper.
However your biodegradable coffee cups can be turned into compost! It will take just 12 weeks for your cups to break down into compost in an industrial composting facility.
√ Help tackle climate change
Your biodegradable coffee cups have a low carbon footprint. They’re made from carbon-absorbing plants.
And because the cups are compostable, they’re ideal if your food waste is collected separately. Your cups and food waste can be composted together – diverting your food waste from landfill. In landfill, food waste emits methane, a nasty greenhouse gas.
What does this all mean?
In one easy switch, from regular to biodegradable coffee cups, your business can reduce its environmental impact and also send out a positive brand message – helping you stand out from competitors.
