Manufactured using paperboard material which is 100% PEFC* (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) Chain of Custody certified, all BioWare paper cups are certified in accordance with EN13432, the European norm for compostability of packaging.This means the cups are fully biodegradable and compostable. Both the PEFC and EN13432 'Seedling' logos feature in the cups' design, providing assurance that the products are from sustainable, legal and traceable sources.
Huhtamaki's BioWare Love Nature cups address one of the biggest sustainability issues - paper drinking cups are one of the most challenging paper products to recycle because of the thin plastic lining which ensures they are able to hold liquid. This means that cups tend to end up in landfill rather than being recycled or composted. Huhtamaki takes its responsibility as a leading packaging and disposables manufacturer seriously, which is reflected in the development of its BioWare paper cups which incorporate a bio-polymer lining derived from plant starches to ensure that the cups are fully biodegradable and can be composted within sixty days in the optimum condition of industrial composting facilities. These green credentials have been proven through projects which have involved composting the BioWare cups and using the resulting compost in several community schemes.
