How Different Is it?

It is 100% plastic free

It does not contain any plastics, bioplastics (PLA) or waxes that are harmful for the environment or health.

It uses water-based coating

The barrier layer of this cup is a water-based dispersion coating.

It is printed with water-based inks

These cups are printed using high quality water-based inks — preventing the use of hazardous solvent-based inks.

It’s easily recyclable

By applying a unique water-based dispersion coating to natural carton board, this cup can be easily recycled, without the need for designated plastic removal systems as there is no plastic lining.

It is certified commercially compostable according to EN 13432

Castaway plastic-free cups can be commercially composted, and will disintegrate in 180 days under commercial composting conditions (if not recycled).

The Cup

Castaway® Plastic Free Classic Single Wall paper coffee cups have been designed with specialty coffee in mind. Unlike conventional plastic lined cups (which require dedicated collection and transport to specialised facilities), our water based coated cups are recyclable via existing recycling streams.

The Lid

Made with natural and renewable sugarcane pulp to provide a coffee lid with a cleaner life cycle, these lids are the perfect match for the slim profile of these cups — ideal for cafes and roasteries who prefer the classic two-lid system for easy identification when serving customers whilst providing a sustainable solution to reduce their environmental impact.

Together, let’s make a difference
