  • BioCups: What is printed kraft look?

    The printed Kraft pattern applies to the 4oz & 6oz Kraft Green Stripe Cups as well as the entire range of 80mm Green Line cups. The reason we sometimes print a kraft-look pattern onto bleached white paper is either due to the fact that unbleached kraft paper is stiffer than bleached kraft paper and it doesn't form as well on the smaller cup diameters, or as in the case of the following BioBoard range, we are unable to source FSC certified unbleached kraft board and we believe the paper source is more important than the paper colour.

    For more information, visit the "Kraft vs. Printed Kraft-Look Paper Products" blog.

  • What's the difference between the term 'biodegradable' and 'compostable'?

    The terms 'biodegradable' and 'compostable' are not equivalent or interchangeable. 'Biodegradable' simply means something will be broken down by microbes over time, which is true for most materials on the planet. Since this term applies to almost everything, it is a meaningless claim that has been abused through greenwashing.

    In contrast, 'compostable' means something will break down in a defined amount of time and in set conditions (humidity levels, temperature, etc), such as the ones encountered in home compost bins or in composting facilities.

    Like any other environmental claim though, it needs to be substantiated. That is why our compostable products are certified to the European Home Compostability NF T51-800 standards or/and European Industrial Compostability EN13432 standards. These testing programs also ensure that the packaging does not hinder compost quality and that the compost produced can safely be applied to land.

  • Clear BioCup: What are the benefits of a clear BioCup?

    Benefits of our clear BioCup include:

    • They are made from plant-based bioplastic, not fossil fuels
    • Compared to regular plastic, bioplastic emits up to 80% less carbon and uses 52% less non-renewable energy in the production process
    • They are transparent and suitable for serving cold food and drinks
    • They are certified industrially compostable to the European EN13432 compost standard
    • They can be processed into compost in a commercial compost facility within 12 weeks

    Did you know?

    If a large sports stadium converted 500,000 plastic cups used at one event to BioCups, it would reduce carbon emissions by 15 tonnes and would save 5.5 tonnes of plastic. That’s equivalent to reducing the emissions produced by driving a new car around the world two and a half times and saving the weight of two elephants in plastic!
