How our biodegradable and compostable products differ from recyclable ones

Compostable Paper CupsConsumer demand has expanded with an increasing number of customers looking for eco-friendly products. In today’s market, many packaging products boast environmentally-friendly benefits without being truly eco-friendly. For instance, recyclable paper cups do contain a percentage of plastic or wax that serve as a coating to prevent leaking. These are popularly referred to as PE cups. These cups can be recycled only to a certain degree and in specific factories. This process is considered as difficult as it is cumbersome to separate the paper from the plastic lining. Other terms that can be confusing are “degradable” that refer to products made of traditional plastics, such as polyethylene, but which are treated with additives, usually consisting of calcium carbonate and heavy metals which causes the material to disintegrate over a number of years.  Degradable products do not compost and contaminate the end material.  Other companies boast the use of innovative environmental composite materials such as specific coatings. However, even they are engineered for recyclability, they comprise of a high percentage of plastic and have to be recycled in adapted recycling factories.


Compostable cups differ from biodegradable cups

Biodegradable and compostable paper cups are different. Instead of being manufactured with petroleum-sourced traditional plastic, they are produced with bioplastic material that is strictly sourced from plants such as corn or sugar cane. These types of paper cups are generally known as PLA paper cups. Even if bioplastic may visually resemble traditional plastic, they are completely different in the sense that plastic may take up to 1,000 years to degrade while bioplastic- made from renewable raw materials- is thereby resource and environment friendly. Bio plastic is non-toxic, biodegradable and compostable. It biodegrades in less than 60 days, decomposing back into natural elements.

Further than that, biodegradable and compostable paper cups differ from each other as well. A biodegradable paper cup is not necessarily compostable. Even if both are sourced from renewable raw materials and are meant to biodegrade and return to nature, they break down at different rates. For products or materials to qualify as biodegradable, they must completely break down and decompose into natural elements within a short time after disposal - typically a year or less.

Compostable materials are similar to biodegradable materials but go a step further by providing the earth with valuable nutrients once the material has completely biodegraded. These materials can be added to compost piles. Currently, only PLA is compostable, hence making our biodegradable range of products compostable as well. It is worth noting that a composter accepts zero percentage of plastic as even the least quantity present will contaminate the whole output.

In addition to that, the paper that we buy to manufacture our printed paper cups is strictly from certified mills only. It is procured from sustainable forests. The material used to manufacture our biodegradable range of paper cups equally complies with the specifications established in the American Society for Testing and Materials in accordance with the “Biodegradable Products Institute-Certification Program for Products Made of Compostable Plastics-Program Rules”.
