BioPak 's compostable PLA clear cold cups have the same look and feel as traditional plastic cups. The main difference, however, is that these innovative cold cups are made from Ingeo, a renewable plant-based plastic that is 100% derived from corn, not oil, and this requires 68% fewer fossil fuel resources to produce than traditional plastic.

Ideally, BioCup Clear Cups should be composted in a commercial compost facility. However, this option is not widely available in Australia. If the BioCup ends up in landfill, it still has upstream environmental benefits, such as reduced greenhouse gas emissions and reduced dependence on fossil fuels. To gain maximum advantage though, the compost bin is the recommended destination.

The following are some of the main features of BioPak’s Clear Cups:

  • Made from plants like corn, not oil
  • Compostable in a commercial compost facility in as little as 45 days
  • Universal fit dome and flat lids reduce storage space requirements
  • Custom printing available (Minimum order quantity 50 000 units)
