our mission:

Start using Good Cups and
remove Bad Cups from our planet - NOW

The Good Cup, our Jungle Cup®, is comparable in cost to the Bad Cup.

Why on earth would anybody still use plastic lined, non compostable Bad Cups? They stay in the environment for over 1.500 years! They kill sealife and every Bad Cup now shows that they do. Check the sign.

Help us on this mission. Switch your organization to Good cups, the Jungle Cup®. We can stop plastic pollution NOW. There is no reason to wait. None. So contact us or call +31 (0)20 4703570.

Jungle Cup® - the first home compostable, certified plastic free disposable cup!

Jungle Cup® - the first home compostable, certified plastic free disposable cup!

We took up the challenge to launch the development of an environmentally friendly alternative to disposable cups that works just as well as cups made with plastic. This challenge meant creating a disposable cup that can handle both hot and cold beverages, that you can print on, and is comparable in cost to produce. And it succeeded.

The new Jungle Cup® replaces the plastic inner lining with a thin water-based membrane material helping the cup achieve the ‘Flustix’ certified plastic-free certification. It is also the only disposable cup in the world made from materials certified as ‘Home Compostable’, meaning it is biodegradable in a natural setting, such as a home compost heap. The Jungle Cup® helps combat the evils of ocean plastic.

6 months versus 1,500 years
After use, people can simply dispose of the Jungle Cup® in any compost bin and it starts to biodegrade in about 6 months (subject to final certification). Bioplastic is believed to take approximately 1,500 years to biodegrade. And the polyethylene plastic liners of traditional disposable cups never disappears.

About our lid…
Our lid is a true revolution! It is made of the same board material as the Jungle Cup® and ensures we keep all the same environmental credentials without affecting the flavour of your drink, whilst mainting a great user experience with our unique lid opening.

A problem of global proportions...

All today’s disposable cups contain plastic. Even those cardboard cups have an inner layer of thin plastic to prevent leaking. Disposable cups with a layer of bioplastic film have been on the market for a while now, but these also need to be recycled in special incinerators; something that seldom ever happens in practice. Because it is attached to paper, this plastic lining makes disposable cups extremely difficult to recycle.

So, we are still throwing away millions of these cups every single day.
In total 500 billion coffee cups a year (source).

Each Jungle Cup® protects 1m2 of rainforest

That’s why they are called the Jungle Cup®. For each cup, the Rainforest Trust receives a percentage of the proceeds to fund the protection of the world’s rainforests. To be precise, this amounts to 1m2 of rainforest being protected per cup sold. The task of protecting the rainforests and other threatened habitats is in the hands of the Rainforest Trust, an international organisation that does this work across the world. Our aim for the next few years is to enable the RainForest Trust to protect more than 100 million m2.

Jungle Cups® are home compostable

That’s right: home compostable and we’re proud of that. Let’s talk about ‘Compostable’ versus ‘Home compostable’. While many varieties of single-use cups on the market today are certified as industrially compostable, they are only biodegradable in unnatural conditions, including constant and very high temperatures. In practice, very few disposable cups ever make it to industrial processing plants. In our case, home compostable means you can put our cups in your compost recycling bin without having to worry. Jungle Cups® don’t require any kind of industrial recycling process.
