Square Burger Serves Milkshakes, Sodas And Floats In Greenware Biodegradable Cups

The cups (at right) are made from corn, environmentally sustainable, and 100% compostable.

(You can see visual evidence of a Square Burger Cake Shake in a Greenware cup in this photo by Unbreaded.)

About the cups:
The Fabri-Kal Greenware line is made from NatureWorks biopolymer, a polylactic acid (PLA) resin derived entirely from plants instead of oil. All Greenware products are created from domestically grown renewable resources and are manufactured in the U.S.A.

Greenware products break down into carbon and water, like other matter derived from plants, in properly managed composting facilities with mature compost, constant temperature control and specific relative humidity for good biological growth. Correctly done at 150F and 90% humidity, products will completely compost in approximately 50 days.
The Phillies were supposed to sell ALL their draft beer in these cups at Citizens Bank Park. However, that still has not happened.

So we are happy to see Stephen Starr taking steps to make Square Burger at least somewhat environmentally responsible.

It is located in a park, after all.
