This biodegradable pint cup is made from a type of plastic called PLA.

PLA is a plant-based plastic that is marketed as ‘biodegradable’. However it is important to note that PLA does not biodegrade like a banana skin – it will not degrade on your compost heap, in the sea, or as litter. To decompose, it requires temperatures in excess of fifty degrees – conditions that are only found at specialised commercial composters. Please do not put PLA cups in recycling bins.

This product is compliant with British/European standard BS EN13432 'Requirements for packaging recoverable through composting and biodegradation'. Please read more about this standard here and more generally here. 

For additional advice about choices for the environment, please see our page here.
