The SOLO 378PLA-J7234 8 oz. Bare Eco-Forward paper single-sided hot cup is a paper cup that is suitable for use with hot liquids, is made from paperboard with 100% plant-based renewable resources, and is lined on the inside with PLA, a plant-based plastic, to provide heat tolerance and help prevent leaking. The lining is made from a form of PLA (polylactic acid) biopolymer (Ingeo), which is made from corn, a renewable resource. The paperboard exterior of the cup is made from fibers certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as originating from sustainably managed forests, or by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) as originating from legal and responsible sources. This product meets the D6868 standards of ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials, for being compostable in municipal and industrial composting facilities. It is also certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) as compostable and accepted by Cedar Grove composting facilities. This cup has a rolled rim to ensure the lid (sold separately) fits securely, a capacity of 8 oz., and is printed with a decorative design.
Disposable food service products are used to store, insulate, transport, prepare, and serve food and drink. They may be made of paper, plastics, or metal foil. Food service products for freezing items protect their contents from freezer burn, contamination, and drying. Microwavable food service products are safe for use to heat food in a microwave. Compostable food service products biodegrade about as fast as yard trimmings and food scraps, and disintegrate so that no large plastic fragments remain.
SOLO manufactures disposable plastic, paper, foam, and post-consumer recycled content cups, plates, and other products for food and beverage service. The company, founded in 1936, is headquartered in Lake Forest, IL.
