World Centric is happy to showcase our newer line of unprinted cups now made from FSC Certified paper . For more information on the FSC, certification, and responsible forestry click here.
World Centric hot cups are also biodegradable and compostable, lined with NatureWorks Ingeo™ polylacticacid (PLA), which is derived from corn grown in the USA. The white colored paper is Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) which means they are bleached without elemental chlorine. Most cups you'll find on the market are lined with polyethylene and wont compost. Ours are compostable and heat resistant up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cafes, restaurants and cafeterias require paper products for their look, printability and general customer acceptance. Technologically, it's very hard to make something similar to paper cups from alternative fibers. We are still researching to see if paper cups and bowls can be made from a mix of alternative fibers, recycled fibers and responsibly managed wood/paper fibers to create a more sustainable product.
These products are BPI (Biodegradables Product Institute) Certified.
Please note, composting is required for biodegradation. These compostable cups will biodegrade within 30 days in a commercial composting facility, and within 90 days in a home composting system.
Q: What is PLA?
A: Polylactic acid or polylactide (PLA) is a biodegradable, thermoplastic, aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch (in the U.S.) or sugarcanes (rest of world). Although PLAhas been known for more than a century, it has only been of commercial interest in recent years, in light of its biodegradability.
