“I am not a plastic cup”


I had the pleasure of attending a Food ‘Feastival’ in Glasgow the weekend past, where I saw this little drinks receptacle:

I am not a plastic cup

It’s not a plastic cup!  It’s actually made from PLA (polylactide), which is a bioplastic and can be composted, albeit ideally in a commercial composting facility.  They may not be replacing PET cups everywhere just yet, but its a step in the right direction and if any of you are planning a large event, you should definitely consider these! Northern Ireland even has large commercial compost producers, such as Natural World Products. Aren’t we just some pups.
