Using eco disposables and bio packaging also makes for a quick and easy way to boost your environmental credentials without costing the earth - perfect for any green-minded festival, mobile catering event, workplace or café.What is Compostable?Compostable means that a product is capable of disintegrating into natural elements in a compost environment, leaving no toxicity in the soil. This typically must occur in about 90 days. Some companies advertise their products as merely biodegradable. This is not necessarily a good thing since nearly everything will biodegrade in 10,000 years!Compostable vs. BiodegradableBiodegradable and compostable can be confusing terms. Technically, both words define biological processes, but they have become prevalent marketing terms as well. This tends to blur the difference between the two, which is understandably confusing!Biodegradation is a larger natural process that can happen in a number of ways, including composting. Composting is very specific process that happens only in situations with the right microorganisms and environmental conditions – and it creates humus, water, and heat. Other biodegradation processes do not make humus, which is an important part of soils. Shop Now

In an age where out sugar industry is complaining that as a population, we are consuming less sugar, more effort should be to make biodegradable products with the sugar.The more of these products that are produced the cheaper they will become and more likely to push out the use of plastic and their Styrofoam counter parts. Buy producing and purchasing more biodegradable products we can significantly reduce landfill. Purchasing and producing plastics contributes to global warming and other environmental issues such as the Littering of our oceans with plastic. This has a devastating effect of killing off marine life to near extinction.Our 2 - 4oz portion pots fit Vegware slim cups as an insert for snack combos, and our standard cups now have a 3oz insert. Made from PLA, a sustainable, renewable plant-based material. These are the perfect eco-friendly product to use!Compostable vs. Paper CupsBoth paper and plastic cups can be made from recycled materials, making them a better option for the environment than if they were conventionally manufactured. Recycled materials save energy by eliminating the need to obtain raw materials. Recycling also reduces the amount of waste in landfills. Despite the availability of recycling options, neither paper nor plastic cups typically are recycled. For the consumer, plastic and paper cups offer savings as well as convenience. When purchased in bulk, disposable cups cost pennies each. Rather than risk broken mugs or glasses when you're eating on the go, you can use a plastic or paper cup.Why Choose Us for Compostable Cold Cups and Hot Cups?As one of the UK’s leading manufacturers in compostable carrier bags and packs. All the products we sell are made from sustainable plant resources including corn starch and sugar cane, not plastic, and will compost alongside food waste.

Once composted, the remaining materials can be used as soil fertiliser.Using compostable food and drink packaging is a huge step towards reducing the environmental impact of packaging. We would like to see all food and drink packaging returned to the earth as fertilizer.
