WHAT DO THEY REPLACE? Styrofoam cups! Can you believe stores still serve these cups? AND that we as consumers tolerate it? There's not enough time here (watch for blog post) but it's bad stuff: benzene and styrene leach into your foods, it doesn't break down even though it's blown and strewn across the globe and it's highly toxic to make.
Paper cups with polyethylene linings that won't biodegrade, come from non-renewable sources, and releases methane which a greenhouse gas works than carbon dioxide. Note: Disposable paper cups aren't the solution either. The best solution is reusable cups and mugs. For those times when you need an on-the-go solution, we think these cups are the better option.
MATERIALS Hot cup is made from sustainably harvested paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®). This certification verifies that a forest is responsibly managed to mitigate the common destructive consequences of logging: habitat destruction, water pollution and displacement of indigenous peoples.
NatureWorks Ingeo™ PLA leak-proof lining: Polylactic Acid (PLA) is a bio-based plastic derived from renewable resources such as corn starch, tapioca roots or sugarcane. To make PLA, sugar from plants is turned into lactic acid through fermentation which is converted into a polymer. At this stage, it is shaped into pellets which can be transformed into a wide variety of products. Manufacturing PLA produces 75% fewer greenhouse gasses and uses 50% less non-renewable energy than traditional polymers like PET & polystyrene.
PACKAGING 100% compostable bag.
Made in Taiwain. Note: World Centric donates 25% of its profits and supports 100% carbon offset.

“When we are young, we think the whole world revolves around us - that is Ego Centric. As we grow, we connect with people who share our same religion or traditions - that is Ethno Centric. When we expand that connection to care about everyone on the planet - that is WORLD CENTRIC.”- Ken Wilber
