These Cold Cups look and feel a lot like their plastic counterparts, but with two big differences: they're made entirely from renewable resources. And they're fully biodegradable within a commercial composting facility.
PLA cups break down within 90-120 days in a commercial composting facility. (By comparison, standard plastic cups, which are made from nonrenewable petrochemicals, cannot be composted, and can take decades to break down.)
Please note that these cups are FOR COLD BEVERAGES ONLY. Please keep this product away from temperatures over 100° F, even when not in use.
