Tap to Unmute
Biodegradable simply means that disintegration will occur, without specifying an amount of time or what the end material may be. Technically, any material is biodegradable overtime and depends on the environment. Companies often use the term “biodegradable” to mislead consumers. It is illegal in the state of California to label a product as biodegradable without being substantiated by third-party testing.
Compostable materials must degrade at a certain rate into a nutrient-rich substance to be qualified. We consider “compostable” to be a legitimate way to measure and represent a product’s end-of-life impact on the environment.
Our compostable products are certified as compostable, not just biodegradable.
The available packaging made from compostable materials does not perform well enough to ensure your products make it home clean and safe.
We are committed to continuing our work innovating cost-effective compostable packaging that’s up to our performance standards. We hope to make all our packaging compostable soon.

“Great product, I feel safe drinking from it.”
These are great cups. I love that they are compostable. I have a garden and we make compost so that is a great benefit of using these cups over others. You can use them for hot or cold beverages. You don’t burn your hands using them. The 12 ounce size is a good size for all the different beverages I consume. I would recommend these to my friends.
These are great cups for hot and cold beverages! They are the perfect size for hot chocolate for my boys! They are easy to hold onto. They hold up well. I love that they are compostable and made from plants! They have no toxic materials in them! Yay! A winner for me and my kids!
