About

Our extensive range of biodegradable cups will ensure you have plenty of options when it comes to choosing the correct cups for you, your business or event. All the cups in our shop are fully biodegradable, compostable & readily available in a variety of sizes.

We only supply the very best cups from manufacturers such as Vegware, Bioware & Planet. Our products are made from PLA, polylactic acid & are certified to biodegrade within 12 weeks under the correct composting conditions. PLA is a plant-based bioplastic made from renewable materials, with many benefits:

  • Light
  • Strong
  • Clear
  • Food safe
  • Produces lower carbon emissions during manufacture than oil-based plastics
  • Biodegradable
  • Compostable

Although a lot of companies sell Biodegradable products, it is important to be sure that what you’re purchasing is fully compostable. For example, lots of items can break down over many years meaning they are biodegradable, but compostable means they are certified to break down in under 12 weeks – this also makes them suitable for commercial composting.

Our double wall paper cups have a PLA lining as opposed to a plastic liner like some paper cups, this makes the whole cup recyclable & compostable. These cups still retain great insulation without the need for an extra sleeve on the outside & are extremely strong.

Water coolers & vending machines often require a specific size cup, we have a variety of cups for a variety of applications in both a bioplastic & paper offering . If you require a specific cup or branding then do not hesitate to get in contact with a member of our team at orders@biodegradable-cups.com.

A selection of accessories is available throughout the site to accompany your cups, such as lids & straws. However, if you can’t find what you are looking for then please get in touch and we will direct you to the correct department.

Glastonbury Tor, Somerset .. otherwise known as HQ

Having our HQ located in such an idyllic setting at the foot of Glastonbury Tor has made us extremely proactive with environmental concerns, and although a cup may seem like such a small item – it can really make a significant difference.
