Are your hot cups and soup cups recyclable?
Printer Friendly Tell a Friend

Today, there are a number of paper cup recycling schemes, however they have a limited spread throughout Europe. This is because separating the cups’ film lining from the paper can be difficult and because food contamination can decrease the value of the material.

Hot cups in our GreenStripe® line (i.e., GreenStripe, WorldArt) are made with renewable resources. These cups are made with paper from trees harvested in North America; they are lined with a biobased plastic. They are certified to be commercially composted after use. If you are not lucky enough to have a commercial composter in your area, these cups should be sent to the landfill.
