There are lots of reasons why Jungle Cup® is the good cup. First of all, it’s certified plastic free. That’s right. Second of all, it’s home-compostable in less than six months. Jungle Cups® have been certified to break down entirely into non-toxic components that will not harm the environment. Sounds great, right? But you’re worried about the price, we get it but get this: Jungle Cup® rivals the cost of most traditional bad cups! Look it up! And if that wasn’t enough reason to make the switch, every single cup you use saves 1m² of tropical rainforest! Who doesn’t like that?

Disposable coffee cups made with ‘bioplastics’ take over 1,500 years to naturally decompose and need specific industrial processing to be recycled. Traditional (non-bio) disposable coffee cups never decompose at all. If you think about it, that’s pretty bad. Why on earth would anybody still use a plastic-lined, non-compostable cup? They’re harmful to your health, release harmful micron-sized microplastic particles into your hot beverage and they kill sea life!
