What is Compostable?

Compostable means that a product is capable of disintegrating into natural elements in a compost environment, leaving no toxicity in the soil. This typically must occur in about 90 days. Some companies advertise their products as merely biodegradable. This is not necessarily a good thing since nearly everything will biodegrade in 10,000 years!

Save nature, think green...

Our PLA (Plant-based Compostable Bioplastic) disposables can break down in under 12 weeks in commercial composting.

Our manufacturers award winning catering disposables are low carbon, made from renewable and recycled materials, and can all be composted with food waste where facilities exist.

We offer a nationwide delivery service.

Important News Update...

Due to shortages at the moment, we are having some trouble getting hold of certain products. Vegware have confirmed that due to manufacturing issues the most problematic products are cold cups, pla straws and NatureFlex, with waiting times currently of 4-6 weeks. This should hopefully be sorted by the end of September.

Why Go Green?

When you choose biodegradable paper cups, you choose sustainability. Biodegradable paper cups are produced from high-quality carton board designed especially for cups. The cups are food-safe, ecological, yet with the same stiffness and perfectly functional. Biodegradable paper cups are 100% compostable in industrial composting and can be collected together with food waste in most collecting schemes.

The Issue

The Compostable Cup Company came into existence to address the UK’s fastest growing waste stream: it is estimated that there are 2.5 billion paper drinking cups disposed of each year. These cups contain an inner polyethylene layer, needed to keep the liquid in the cup and stop the rest of the material getting soggy, which, in the past, paper processing plants were unable to separate and so, consequently, the only solution was to send them to landfill or waste to energy facilities.

The Solution

In 2013 the whole recycling landscape changed when two new specialists’ plants where established. By moving to compostable catering disposables means that food and packaging waste can be recycled together and provides the only true recycling solution for zero waste in food service. We provide more than simply food service packaging. Our solution-based approach spans comprehensive creative and environmental consultancy to deliver your brand along with full zero waste programs for food service.

UK Parliament to dramatically reduce plastic use through new compostable products

UK Parliament announces the introduction of a new range of compostable products to replace existing single-use plastic items.

The plant-based products include certified compostable single-use cutlery, coffee cups and lids, soup containers, takeaway food containers, salad boxes, and drinking straws. New waste bins will be introduced to capture used compostable items, which will then be sent to a specialist waste facility...
