GreenStripe Hot Cups
Your average, old school hot cup's life is basically a grab, drink, and toss existence. That sums it up, right? Well, instead of just throwing it away, we decided to make it smarter and greener during it's short life in your hands. By lining our cups with renewable polylactic acid (PLA), we've created cups that break down in a commercial compost facility and return to the Earth, leaving nothing but life-giving compost as a legacy. Makes sense, doesn't it?

GreenStripe® branding communicates your environmental commitment
Traditional hot cups are lined with petroleum, the world's most valuable, non-renewable resource, making them not compostable or recyclable.
Polylactic acid (PLA) or "corn plastic" is made from annually renewable resources, not oil.
Our PLA products are compostable in commercial compost facilities, but unfortunately not in your home compost.
Compost is a great way to improve vital soil resources and divert waste that would otherwise be landfilled.
