If you've ever tried to make an eco-friendly choice when it comes to packaging materials, you'll know it can be a confusing landscape to navigate. With various claims and technical terms, it's important to be on the lookout for unscrupulous marketing. As for plastic products, the most common (misleading) claim is plastics labelled as ‘degradable’, ‘biodegradable’ or even ‘landfill degradable’. Unlike bioplastics which are produced from renewable resources, these 'degradable plastics' are just conventional plastics derived from fossil resources with an additive that the manufacturers claim will render the product biodegradable under specific conditions.

Bioplastic myths busted!

A bioplastic is a substance made from organic biomass sources, unlike conventional plastics, which are made from fossil resources (oil and gas), bioplastics are made from a number of renewable resources such as plant oils, cellulose, starches, sugars, carbohydrates, bacteria and algae. The production of almost all bioplastics results in less CO2 than that of conventional plastics.

This bioplastic we use is also compostable meaning it can be diverted from landfill at the end of its life, returning nutrients back into the soil.

Cold Cups

On a hot day there’s nothing better than a cool refreshing drink on the go, and disposable cups are the most practical, convenient and hygienic option for serving takeaway cold drinks.

Conventional single-use cold cups like plastic drinking cups, plastic-lined paper milkshake cups, and disposable smoothie cups, are made from fossil fuels. After a short useful life of approximately 20 minutes, conventional disposable cups will most likely end up in landfill where it will take decades to breakdown, releasing greenhouse gases in the process.

We offer a range of eco-friendly cold cups suitable for a range of cold beverages, and can even be used to package takeaway muesli and fruit salads.

Our clear cold cups are made from Ingeo™ –  a plant-based plastic – offer a more sustainable alternative to plastic drinking cups. Just like traditional plastic cups with lids, they are perfectly clear and sturdy, performing excellently when serving cold food and drinks. Our clear

 bioplastic cups are the first and only products of the kind certified to Australian/New Zealand commercial compost standards – AS4736. Plus, the carbon footprint of producing Ingeo™ bioplastic is up to 75 percent smaller than conventional plastics such as PET.

Made from premium grade paperboard, sourced from managed plantations, these BioCups are specially designed for ice cold drinks. The external moisture barrier ensures the paper doesn’t absorb any condensation and soften.

BioPak eco-friendly single-use cold drink cups are either recyclable, or commercially compostable which reduces greenhouse gases, returns nutrients back to the earth and improves soil quality, and costs less than sending waste to landfill.

Where composting is not an option, many councils recycle disposable paper cups with other paperboard products. Alternatively, we offer our own composting service.
