Where the Others Went Wrong
Most traditional single-use paper cups are lined with fossil fuel-based plastic to prevent hot liquids from leaking through. This not only renders the cups unrecyclable and nonbiodegradable but, according to research featured in Environmental Science & Technology, it can release trillions of plastic nanoparticles into the cup’s contents.
With phade®, you don’t have to worry about ingesting microscopic toxins with every sip. It’s the world’s first cup lined with PHA, a natural biopolymer derived from canola oil. Unlike the conventional plastic coating, this natural alternative comes from the earth and can return to it after use, meaning phade® can be safely recycled or composted — a fact no paper hot cup could claim until now.
