Real Eco Plastic Free Compostable/Recyclable 12oz / 340ml Hot Cups Double Wall (Case of 500) - RE12
Paper cups have mostly replaced the old style plastic cups, but they are still very difficult to recycle and most end up on landfill. This is because they require a waterproof barrier and most are currently are made from a plastic based coating. But these are Plastic Free Cups...
- PE Cups are oil based plastic lining. Must be disposed of in specialised bins and reach a specialised waste facility for the lining and paper board to be separated and recycled.
- PLA Compostable Cups are made from a plant based plastic lining and must be disposed of in specialised bins and reach specialised waste facility for the cups to be industrially composted. It was hoped that PLA would become the answer, however, the sheer difficulty in recycling and the fact that it creates micro-plastics means it doesn't meet EU Single Use Plastic Directives.
- Plastic Free Cups from Real Eco use an aqua based barrier coating. They can be composted both at home and commercially or disposed of in any paper/card waste bin domestically, commercially or in public recycling bin. These cups meet all the EU directives for single use and are Plastic & PLA free. The rare also made from Virgin Fibre baseboard which helps support the circular economy. Not only that, they are available in these 4 fantastic funky designs.
