By “going green” and developing Karat® Earth in 2007, Karat® offered products our eco-friendly competitors could not: eco-friendly plastic cups, paper cups, and assorted food packaging products at an affordable price. Customers don’t have to sacrifice the environment for good quality plastic products. Made with NatureWorks® PLA, Karat® Earth’s disposable plastic cups and food packaging products are completely degradable and pose no threat to the natural environment. Karat® currently offers compostable plastic cups, lids, straws, and utensils in a variety of sizes. Unlike most PLA plastics in the market, Karat® Earth’s PLA plastic cups and lids are made in standard cup and lid sizes for easy switch between brands and storage.
