An excellent replacement for plastic or paper cups, made from sugarcane fiber "bagasse" the fibrous waste left over after extraction of the sugar from the cane. Can tolerate both high (212 F.). These products are sturdy, grease and cut resistant, and microwave/freezer safe and is the most cost effective replacement for Styrofoam. Our cups comply with ASTM6868 standards for compostability. Compost is a sustainable way to enrich & remediate contaminated soils; Composting organic materials that have been diverted from landfills ultimately avoids the production of methane and leachate formulation in the landfills; Using compost can reduce the need for water, fertilizers, and pesticides.
