    About Vegware compostables
    Vegware products are specifically designed to be safe and suitable for organic recycling.
  • Any paper surface that comes into contact with food is made from sustainable forest virgin board.
  • The bulk of our recycled products are not made from paper but bagasse fibre which is left over after sugar cane has been pressed.
  • They use non-toxic vegetable, water-based inks or where necessary a UV-process which evaporates harmful chemicals.

    We encourage you to either compost on site or have your food waste collected by www.foodwastenetwork.org.uk.

    What is PLA?
    This product is made from or contains PolyLactic Acid (PLA). PLA is a plant-based compostable bioplastic. PLA is an environmentally friendly alternative to petrochemical originated plastic polymers and can be used to make a wide range of eco-disposable products including cold cups, deli containers, lids, straws, portion pots etc. It is also used in clear windows, greaseproof paper and cup linings.

    The Benefits of PLA
  • Made from renewable plant materials.
  • Light, strong, clear and food-safe.
  • Lower carbon emissions in manufacture than oil-based plastics.
  • No toxic petrochemical 'plasticisers' with are used with PLA which means foods and drinks are not contaminated with poison.

    About Vegware
    Founded in 2006 by Joe Frankel, Edinburgh-based company Vegware is the UKs first and only compostable food packaging company. You can't recycle plastic with food on it, and you can't compost food mixed with disposable plastic waste. So Vegware makes disposable plates, cups and cutlery that can be mixed in with food waste and composts naturally. So now in your cafe or at your event you can provide your customers with just one bin into which all the waste you generate can be placed and composted.
    The production of plastic requires the extraction of oil and all the war and environmental destruction that brings. Oil creates huge amounts of carbon. With Vegware you can join the thousands of companys that are refusing plastic disposables and reducing the UKs carbon footprint by hundreds of tonnes.
    Vegware products are compostable which is much better than biodegradable. Biodegradable materials break down naturally over time, but 'compostable' means it all happens much quicker - between 8 and 12 weeks in the right conditions.
    Not only does composting your disposables save the planet - but its saves money too. With landfill charges going up every year with Vegware you can access the Food Waste Network who will match you up with a food waste recycler.
    Vegwares founder Joe Frankel is delighted with the progress, saying:
    It has been a fantastic journey. When we started, sustainability was a niche concern. It took years of research and development but now our full range can be commercially composted together with food waste rather than go to landfill. Now Vegware's eco catering disposables are used at 50% of the UKs universities, and at corporate restaurants and artisan cafes all around the UK.
