    These cups are exactly what we wanted and can affordably be branded with the use of a logo stamp. Home compostable means we can feel good about serving our customers in takeaway cups.

    We love working with Compostable alternatives to be able to offer our certified organic coffee in fully legit cups and lids which don't harm the planet or require a (often absent) facility to disintegrate! We're absolutely stoked that Tasmanian Organic Coffee Co is the first business using actually home compostable cups IN TASMANIA!

    A really good product, thicker so no need to double cup for long blacks. Have compostable symbol and its written on the cups so easier to dispose of. Look great and have been well received by our barista's and customers. Takes about 7 days to receive an order too

    We like these cups, they feel great, are a bit thicker than the Biopak ones we were using before and have compostable written on them clearly! The fact they are thicker means no double cup for long black coffees either!

    From order to delivery - about 1 week.

To disposal:

  • Home compost
  • FOGO*/Green kerbside bin where accepted
  • Dedicated cup recycling program
  • Backyard burial
  • Landfill bin

Even if this product can break down in the environment, we recommend proper disposal and never in the nature!

*Food Organics and Garden Organics

Why we like them:

To date and for the past two years, we haven’t found a single brand selling a certified home compostable coffee cup! Many brands claim their products is breaking down in soil, but unless they are certified, it is impossible to guarantee they leave no trace, no micro plastic and no toxicity in soil or the environment.

To date only commercially compostable coffee cups are available in Australia and they need to go in a FOGO*/green kerbside bin that accepts commercially compostable food packaging to become compost.

The latest APCO reports (April 2021) show that only 51 Australian councils (out of 537!) accept commercially compostable food packaging.

It’s time to change that!
