What is bagasse?
Bagasse is the natural fibre left after sugarcane is processed to produce sugar. These fibres are both strong & durable but are 100% plant-based therefore compostable and biodegradable and beneficial to Mother Earth. With renewable growth of between 2 to 3 times per year it is a highly sustainable material choice & only takes around 45-60 days to biodegrade
What is bamboo pulp?
Bamboo is a fast-growing, evergreen plant belonging to the botanical family of grasses. The fact that many bamboo species grow up to 3.3 feet (1 meter) per day along with several noteworthy physical properties make bamboo an extremely attractive and highly sustainable source of many end products, including bamboo pulp for the manufacture of textiles and paper
The problem with PLA
PLA cup lids and PLA lined cups that find their way into landfill sites remain intact for as long as any other form of plastic. PLA will only biodegrade under specific conditions and these conditions are, generally, only found at industrial composting sites. The sad truth is that these products are worse than plastic as they can only be composted in an industrial compost facility

Plastic in product logo
“From 3 July 2021, according to Directive (EU) 2019/904, EU Member States shall, through their national legislation, ensure that certain single-use plastic products which are placed on their market bear a marking on the packaging or product itself. The marking concerns single-use plastic products listed in part D of the Annex to Directive (EU) 2019/904” (The UK is also adopting this process).
Plastic Packaging Tax (PPT)
This is a new tax on plastic packaging in the UK which will be implemented from April 2022. Plastic packaging tax only applies to manufacturers and importers of plastic packaging components which contain less than 30% recycled plastic. A new £200 per tonne tax on plastic packaging. Our Planetware range contains zero plastic and is packed in zero plastic packaging, so you can rest assure that you will not need to pay any additional PPT.
