Traditional hot cups are lined with petroleum, the world’s most valuable, non-renewable resource, making them not compostable or recylable. Polylactic acid (PLA) or “corn plastic” is made from annually renewable resources, not oil. Our PLA products are compostable in commercial compost facilities, but unfortunately not in your home compost.
Commercial compost facilities may not exist in your area. Look for one at findacomposter.com
Compost is a great way to improve vital soil resources and divert waste that would otherwise be landfilled.
