Carbon Neutral

 

Through a partnership with Carbon Neutral Pty Ltd, we offset a percentage of our emissions to ensure our products have minimal impact on the environment.

“Working with Carbon Neutral between 2013-2017, EPS has offset 77 tonnes of CO2 through Australian based reforestation projects.” Carbon Neutral Pty Ltd 

Materials We Use

 

As a sustainable food packaging supplies business our products are manufactured from reusable materials. The material used in our packaging products are derived from plants and not fossil fuels. Using our packaging you are minimising the impact that your food packaging has on the environment.

If our products end up in a compost facility they will compost in as little as three months.

PLA is derived from corn starch, tapioca roots or sugarcane. Fully biodegradable PLA behaves like a traditional plastic yet will fully degrade into water, carbon dioxide and organic material when composted.

 

The Facts About Coffee Cups

 

  1. Coffee cups ARE recyclable. See below for a list of councils that recycle them. If your local council is not on the list, get in touch and see what they can do. 
  2. Eco Barista cups are lined with polylactic acid (PLA), a plant based renewable material, meaning our cups are certified compostable to Australian standards (AS 4736—2006). If disposed of correctly in a suitable composting environment, our cups will break down and turn into useful organic compost. 
  3. If you choose not to purchase our compostable lids our plastic lids are recyclable, they can be disposed of in your recycling bin.
  4. Australians send 1.9 million tonnes of paper to landfill each year – under 1% of this comes from coffee cups
