I'm Hot (pun intended). And here's why, i'm made from plants, not oil and have a 75% lower carbon footprint then most of the other cups you've had a drink with... No wonder you've got that tingly feeling inside. But don't get too attached. I'll be gone soon.
Innocent Hot Cups are made with paper from managed plantations, lined with a plant based bio plastic called Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) and are 100% commercially compostable.
PLA is derived from naturally-occurring plant sugar. Our elegant cups are as robust and heat-retaining as any oil-based alternatives.
Only 5% of plastics are being recycled effectively and coffee cups aren't recycled in New Zealand. Bio Plastic PLA reduces carbon emissions by 75% when compared to Oil based alternatives. For more info check out our Learn More page.
