12oz Double Wall Compostable Cups - Ingeo (500)
12oz Double Wall Compostable Ingeo Cups (500)
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.

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?
