Rise of Corn Starch
We now produce corn starch paper cups to reduce waste and cater to the eco-conscious customer. Corn starch films come in to replace polyethene. Polyethene (PE) is a famous coating hard to recycle and fills landfills.
Corn starch is also famous as polylactic acid (PLA). This is a renewable biopolymer, and it’s widely accessible. The corn starch material now serves as a packaging material in many industries. It’s even replacing polystyrene in the manufacture of home products.
For brands looking for an alternative to styrofoam and polyethene, corn starch paper cups are the answer. The PLA in these paper cups is compostable, meaning it can break down and rot like leaves, sawdust and food waste.
Corn starch paper cups and biodegradable paper cups are the same. Their compostability means we can now reduce landfill waste and cut recycling costs.
Coffee and ice cream consumption is now a lifestyle. Bio paper cups permit enjoying the lifestyle stress-free. There’s now no need to worry over waste going into the environment or distress about toxicity.
Insight into Our Corn Starch/ Compostable Paper Cups
We are past polyethene coatings (PE) for our paper cups. As much as it’s recyclable, it requires individual plants for proper recycling. Besides, a good deal of PE coated cups get poorly disposed and end into landfills.
Instead of PE, we now use polylactic (PLA) coating for our paper cups. The PLA material hails from fermented sugars and it’s more friendly to the environment. If disposed of well, these bio paper cups breakdown into carbon and water within a few months.
Compostable paper cups are inspirational. It’s so exciting to see a coffee cup turning into nutrients for the production of more containers. But that doesn’t mean you should throw the bio paper cup into any landfill. Yes, bio paper cups are compostable, but they need oxygen and moisture to decompose.
A compostable paper cup blown by the wind into a landfill may take long to decompose. Landfills lack the oxygen and moisture essential for the degradation of these cups. Good news! Bio cups are free from harmful chemicals and are safe for drinking coffee. Besides, they leave the soil and water bodies uncontaminated.
Before, cost impeded innovations in the paper cup industry. Yet, the birth of PLA offers a cheap, sustainable and easy to produce raw material for coating paper cups. Meaning, we now have a coffee cup that not only promotes a clean environment but also saves packaging cost.
Bio paper cups are also readily available. Corn starch is affordable and plenty around the world. A ton of coffee cups innovations failed to guarantee supply. But the rise of corn starch is good news to businesses and the environment.
We now can reduce plastic waste in landfill, save our fossil reserves and secure the planet. Petroleum products add pressure on the fossil reserves. They also encourage waste and emit a lot of carbon.
Bio paper cups is a motivating step toward sustainability. For once, we can drink coffee to improve the soil. We are even free from fear of hurting marine life and exposing our lives.
Compostability Revolutionising the Paper Cup Industry
PLA has stunned the paper cup industry with its immense benefits. Many brands now perceive it as the answer to many packaging problems.
One thing that makes it adored in food packaging is that it’s food safe. There are now plates, spoons and take-away containers made from PLA. It’s for the same reason; the paper cup industry adopted this magical material.
PLA is also not smelly and resistant to food oils. It’s thus a perfect coating for a coffee cup. And it’s resistance to UV rays makes it even better for coffee on the go.
As mentioned bio paper cups are compostable. They are even more eco-friendly if you consider their origin. Corn consumes carbon dioxide during growth. It thus counters the carbon emissions during production. Using PLA reduces climatic change as more corn gets produced.
We prefer PLA since it’s a thermoplastic. This makes it a safe product for recycling. Thermoplastics can undergo heating and cooling processes without losing their properties.
PLA popularity increases once its printing properties come to the fore. It’s sturdy and can get printed at low temperatures. No surprise, it’s a popular filament for 3D printing.
For businesses that want to brand, the printing benefits of paper and PLA are a great advantage. Both materials are effortless to print and can help brands to cut marketing costs.
Compostable Paper Cups for Brand Awareness
One reason we adopted bio paper cups is to cater to businesses that need to eco-brand. Bio paper cups carry properties that appeal to sustainable companies.
The compostability of bio paper cups is a massive pull for customers. Brands that adopt them can attest to a better image and increased awareness.
Switching from polyethene to PLA is an enormous statement. It’s also a move that can allow any business to reap many benefits.
Choosing PLA coated cups is a showing of assertiveness. Your brand can appeal as decisive and a leader by adopting sustainable processes. It would be best if more brands choose these cups and serve the eco-conscious customer.
The good news is there’s environmental awareness now than ever. Customers now drift to businesses that support social causes and are compassionate to the environment.
