Tell me more about these cups!
Although they look like they are made of paper, Disposable Coffee Cups are lined with a thin plastic so they are waterproof and can hold your drink without falling apart. That thin plastic lining unfortunately means that they are not recyclable via most local council kerbside collection programs.
Compostable Coffee Cups however are made with a bioplastic lining (organic materials) that break down naturally in the environment.
In simple terms, Compostable Coffee Cups are far a better option for the planet, though they are a more expensive option given the quality of the materials.
