Product Details

8oz Double Wall Compostable Ingeo Cups (100)

These 'Kraft' coloured paper cups feature double wall insulation and are printed with the eco logo. All of the cups in this range are lined with a plant-based Polylactic Acid (PLA), which is a fully biodegradable material, making these cups fully compostable.

Conventional packaging materials are plastic lined, deriving from the finite resource of oil. These cups are manufactured with a much lower carbon footprint, making them the ideal choice to help reduce the impact of disposable cups and lids on the environment. 

Disposal in a food composting waste stream diverts food and packaging waste from landfill avoiding ozone depleting methane emissions. Packaging contaminated with food cannot be recycled so compostable packaging offers a great alternative.

Made from high quality food grade paper board. Dimensions: Top Diameter 80mm x Height 93mm

  • Pack of 100 x 8oz double walled cups
  • Fully compostable
  • Excellent insulation properties
  • PLA Lined
  • Made from high-quality food-grade paper

Each cup is printed with a batch number ensuring full traceability through our supply chain to the manufacturing process.

Available in other sizes.

Ingeo™ Brand PLA

What exactly is it?

Eco-Products offers cups, lids, cutlery, straws and containers made from a biopolymer called PLA (polylactic acid). We use Ingeo™ brand PLA. Ingeo™ is made from starchy plants like corn, grown right here in the U.S. Starch from corn kernels is processed into a biopolymer that looks, acts, and performs like petroleum-based plastics.

Why we use it?

Ingeo™ performs much like traditional plastics, but with the crucial benefit of being 100% compostable in commercial compost facilities. We like Ingeo™ because it is versatile, compostable, and best of all, not petroleum derived. We even use it in place of traditional plastic linings in our GreenStripe® and World Art™ hot cups so they are entirely made from renewable materials, unlike most regular hot cups. Many of our food containers and even our compostable cutlery is made from Ingeo™. In cutlery, the formulation of Ingeo™ is rigid and durable — perfect for high-strength needs and of course, commercial composting!

What's cool about it?

Most plastics are derived from petroleum, or oil. Oil is our most valuable resource in many ways. It's also a resource that comes with a lot of negative environmental and social impacts. Our Ingeo™ products give you the option of products made from renewable resources, like corn instead of oil. Corn can be grown again and again, unlike oil which is nonrenewable. Ingeo™ plastics have the added benefit of being compostable when you are finished using them. Composting is an opportunity to divert waste that would otherwise be landfilled — and by composting, you create valuable humus which improves soil so that plants can grow again. How about that?

 

Additional Information

How Do I Know Which Cups To Buy?

Disposable cups are available in many different sizes, materials and designs, though they all fall into just a few categories. The best choice for your needs will depend on several factors, including budget, drink size, colour scheme and more. Here is a basic guide to help you decide.

Single Wall Cups

As the name suggests, single wall cups are made from a single layer of card, making them a very cost-effective option. They are suitable for both hot and cold drinks, though if you are serving tea and coffee, you may prefer to give your customers a cardboard ‘cup clutch’ sleeve to prevent too much of the heat from the drink getting through onto their hands.

Double Wall Cups

Made using two separate outer layers bonded together, double wall cups offer much better thermal insulation, meaning that hot drinks stay hotter for longer and are noticeably cooler to the touch. This removes the need for cup clutches, though they are of course more expensive to manufacture.

Ripple Cups

The ripple cups that we stock are all triple walled, so they are very strong and have the best insulation available. They are available in a variety of different textures and designs, several different colours and a whole range of sizes, so they are the perfect for choice for serving all types of hot drinks to your customers.

Biodegradable Cups

The biodegradable paper cups that we offer are made from premium food grade materials, single PLA-coated and printed with a simple but attractive design.

These compostable cups can be placed with other biodegradable materials and turned into a nutrient rich compost. Additionally, they don’t release harmful toxins while decomposing, so if your business needs disposable cups with the greenest credentials, this could be the right choice for you. 

PET Cups 

Our clear plastic smoothie cups are manufactured from polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and are lightweight, strong and resistant to impact. Additionally, they can be recycled. These cups are perfect for all cold drinks such as smoothies, milkshakes, soft drinks, fruit juice, etc. They are not suitable for use with hot beverages.

Milkshake Cups

The candy-striped milkshake cups that we stock are made from a single layer of wax-coated paper, making them perfect for holding cold drinks without adding the unnecessary expense of a double wall construction. Available in various colours and sizes, they are great not only for serving shakes, but can also be used for pick ‘n mix sweets, etc. Also available with domed or flat lids.

Vending Cups

We also stock plastic cups for use in suitable vending machines, as well as blue plastic cups for use alongside water coolers. Both of these are made from plastic and can be recycled.
