Bio paper cups is a calling. With a colossal waste from disposable and single-use coffee cups, we saw the need for an alternative. Thus, the birth of bio paper cups.

This is the way forwardConfused, Not sure?

In the UK, coffee lovers use up to 2.7 billion cups per year. Sadly, up to to 90% of these cups go to landfills leaving an uncontrollable mess.

The waste can hurt marine life and the environment for the next thousand years. Bio paper cups is our initiative to rid the planet of all non-compostable coffee cups.

Bio paper cups solve the safety and the environment problem. We use corn or sugar starch for the cups insulation. The coating, also known as PLA (Poly lactic acid) degrades within ten days in an industrial compost pit.

At home, the PLA will decompose within 40-90 days in a standard compost. That makes the bio-cup safe for the environment and human use. Yet, there’s more to the bio paper cup that makes us the market’s choice!




In our quest to preserve the environment, we conceived a PLA-biodegradable paper cup. The bio paper cup comprises a top-quality GSM paper board and a corn starch coating.

We make all our paper products from renewable materials to protect the environment. We source the manufacturing paper board from controlled and certified forests.

So, our bio paper cups carry the PEFC or FSC certification. And to ensure you don’t trouble choosing a certified from a non-certified cup, we label all the paper cups.

By using certified paperboards, we support our forest’s protection and conservation. To you, the customer, an FSC mix, is a surety of quality. Certification guarantees the paper board is of the highest standard. Plus, the manufacturer supports responsible forest management.

Wood and corn starch are renewable raw materials. Unlike petroleum, they have the least carbon imprint. More, their raw material sources can’t get depleted.




Another thing that lured us into bio paper cups is the removal of the recycling distress. Initially, you wouldn’t recycle a standard paper cup. It had a plastic bonding that made it impossible to recycle.

Recycling a plastic/PE coated cup is an uphill and costly task. Even some recycling plants don’t accept the PE or the disposable cup. Reason being, there are still few PE coated cup recycling plants. For such cups that end in landfills, the environmental impact lasts for aeons.

Enter our new corn starch coated cup, and the recycling troubles are no more. When bio paper cups don’t reach a recycling plant, they can decay and leave the environment clean. The only thing you need to do is to make sure you compost the cups or dump in compostable bins.
