The paperboard we use in our coffee cups provides superior quality and increased insulation compared to the average paperboard on the market.
Our paper is sourced from responsibly managed plantations and lined with naturally advanced Ingeo™ bioplastic. It also has a significantly lower carbon footprint than the fossil fuel based polymers that it replaces, because the manufacture of Ingeo™ emits fewer greenhouse gasses (GHGs) than the comparable manufacture of all common petrochemical-based plastic1. This innovation of turning plants into plastic allows us to exclude non-renewable resources (such as oil) from the production of our EcoCup.
