These petite 6oz paper cups are the perfect size for children's parties!!
They are made from paper sourced from managed plantations that are SFI and FSC certified and are lined with PLA, a bioplastic derived from plant-based starch.
They differ from normal paper cups which are lined with polyethylene, a petroleum-based plastic lining.
BioCups are commercially compostable and recyclable in kerb-side recycling.
Complies with American standard ASTM D6868 and European standard EN 13432 for compostability and is ISO 9001 and ISO 14000 certified. This means they will break down into usable soil via a commercial composting facility.
Commercial composting is not widely available in Australia. Contact your council to find out if it is available for you. If you are from South Australia you can notify your council to let them know you are placing commercially compostable tableware in your green organics bin as this service is available throughout SA.
The manufacturing process for these products uses less energy and emits less pollution than petroleum-based products. It also generates fewer greenhouse gases.

These small white single walled cups were just right for the kids (and adults,too) at our party to drink water and soft drinks from. The 50 got used. As our council doesn't commercially compost they had to into landfill but one day, hopefully, there will be that option available.
