Karat Earth Insulated Paper Hot Cups are the eco-friendly choice among paper coffee cup options. Unlike other paper hot cups that are lined with chemically-made plastics to prevent leaking, the PLA lining is a type of coating that derives from corn or sugarcane, which is a renewable resource. These cups are compostable in commercial facilities where the variables, including temperature, humidity, and bacteria are controlled to facilitate biodegradation. Karat Earth 16 oz Insulated Paper Hot Cups are leaking free and can be commercially composted.  Go green with our entire line of Karat Earth products including PLA plastic cups, lids, straws, utensils, and more!


*Please be sure to store this item below 110 F away from heat, hot surfaces and direct sunlight to prevent deformation. Lollicup USA Inc. will not be responsible for any damages during the transit due to temperature control.
