Why Use Greener Shapes Products for Hot or Cold Beverages?

Why Use Greener Shapes Products for Hot or Cold Beverages?

To make a paper product suitable for beverages you must coat the products with a waterproof barrier. Historically, that was done with plastic based products that are not recyclable. Recently manufacturers have started to use PLA coatings that are industrial compostable. Unfortunately, that coating has proven to be contaminate in the recycle stream. With our unique construction of materials, we provide a product that can be industrial composted or recycled. Two great choices for the environment.

Are Compostable Paper Cups Safe & Sturdy Enough for Beverage Packaging?

Our paper cups are food-safe, and can handle temperatures up to 239 degrees. Greener Shapes uses compostable materials that you can also recycle, offering your customers the flexibility to do their part for the world.

In an industrial composting facility, it typically takes less than 90 days to decompose fully.
