These paper biodegradable cups are lined with Nature Works polylactic acid (PLA), which is derived from corn grown in the USA. They differ from normal cups in that normal cups are lined with polyethylene and are not compostable or recyclable. Paper/PLA cups are not the most sustainable solution, but they are a step in the right direction.
The paper comes from PotLatch Corporation, a sustainable forestry corporation, and is Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) (bleached without elemental chlorine). The cups are lined with PLA for easy recycling or composting.
