Biodegradable and Ecologically Friendly: A blog about how great cupstock paper is for our planet.


Have you ever given any thought to how much plastic waste is floating in our oceans and landfills? The amount of waste piling up is simply unsustainable. Manufacturers are beginning to embrace eco-friendly packaging solutions in order to reduce the impact of their products. Cupstock paper when coated with PLA and water dispersion is biodegradable and fully recyclable. This makes it a viable alternative to cups that are coated with PE or Poly coating.


With the rise of disposable cups and the overuse of plastic, there has been a lot of backlash against the industry.

One of the most popular materials for disposable cups is polyethylene (PE), which is often used for its waterproofing, heat-resistant, and durability properties. However, PE-coated cupstock is not fully recyclable. In fact, few states in India have banned the use of PE-coated cupstock as it has an adverse impact on the environment due to its plastic content.

PLA Coated Cupstock on the other hand is fully recyclable and biodegradable. Unlike PE Coated Cupstock, PLA Coated Cupstock is only made out of plant-based material and does not have any harmful chemicals like BPA or PVC that can harm our health or the environment.


If you're looking for a sustainable alternative to PE Coated Cupstock, we've got you covered!

PLA Coated Cupstock is fully recyclable and biodegradable. It's also better for the environment than PE Coated Cupstock because it doesn't contain plastic.

Many states in India have banned the use of PE Coated Cupstock due to its adverse impact on the environment.

If you're in one of those states that have banned the use of PE-coated cupstocks, then PLA is your best bet. It's fully recyclable, compostable, and made from renewable resources like corn starch or sugar cane.


PLG IMPEX can arrange the supply from European manufacturers if you need these alternatives.
