Bio Cups

Responsibly sourced paper

Responsible sourcing encourages environmentally sound forestry,
helps establish sustainable material flows and preserves valuable
resources for future generations.

Well-managed forests provide clean air and water, maintain soil
quality, preserve biodiversity and habitats, and sequester CO2.

At Swetwise we are committed to only using certified raw
materials from responsible sources with either SFI, PEFC or
Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certification.

Beneficial bioplastic (PLA)
Using bioplastic for our cup lining and lids eliminates the need to use
non-renewable fossil resources. The PLA bioplastic used by
Swetwise has a carbon footprint 75% lower than conventional
plastics.
Bioplastic products are made from bio-based rapidly renewable
resources such as plants. Instead of choosing petroleum-based
plastics, that are toxic and cause environmental pollution,
consumers can choose products made from compostable,
renewable bioplastics.

Produced in a facility certified compliant to international
environmental standards (ISO 14001) and ethical and fair labour
practices.

Whenever possible we encourage consumers to bring their own mugs.
However, we understand this isn’t always practical. For the safest, most hygienic and
sustainable alternative, choose BioCups and Lids.
