Van der Windt UK has made an addition to its extensive range of biodegradable products by launching what it says is a fully compostable bio-cup range to the UK market. The raw materials used to manufacture the cups, including all inks and coatings, are fully biodegradable as certified in accordance with the DIN CERTCO composting standards. “Many products on the market claim to be biodegradable, however it is often the case that the inks and coatings used on such products are environmentally damaging, therefore not fully compostable. In order to maximise their efforts in reducing their carbon footprint, customers should verify the source of the cups with their suppliers to ensure that they are fully certified,” says Richard Selby, general manager at Van der Windt UK.
