This 160ml cup is made from a type of plastic called PLA.

PLA is a plant-derived plastic that is 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. Please download the product's certificate of compliance here.
