Jungle Cup® is the good cup. Firstly, it is validated as microplastic free and features 95% less plastic than a traditional disposable coffee cup. That means you can enjoy your hot drink, safe in the knowledge that no harmful microplastic particles will be consumed. Secondly, it’s fully home compostable and will disappear 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? We understand that you’re worried about the cost of plastic free alternatives, but get this: Jungle Cup® rivals the cost of most disposable paper and plastic cups. And if that isn’t enough of a reason to make the switch, every single cup you use saves 1m² of tropical rainforest, protecting the reclamation of 11kg of CO2 per square meter. What’s not to like?
Disposable cups made with ‘bioplastics’ release harmful micron-sized microplastic particles into your hot beverage, take over 1,500 years to break down and require specific industrial processes to be recycled. Most traditional (non-bio) disposable cups will never decompose at all. If you think about it, that’s pretty bad. Why would anybody still use a plastic-lined, non-compostable cup? They’re harmful to your health, take thousands of years to decompose and cause irreparable damage to wildlife and the environment.
Our nano layer, combined with FSC® certified paper, is truly unique with the incredible benefit of naturally decomposing in less than six months. Jungle Cups are proven to contain less than 0.48% plastic. In comparison, a standard paper and plastic cup contains over 5% plastic. When we think about the 600 billion paper and plastic cups used worldwide, the potential plastic savings are staggering.
The Jungle Cup® has no plastic liner. Our nano layer, combined with FSC® certified paper, is truly unique with the incredible benefit of naturally decomposing in less than six months.
