Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc and International Paper have topped off their collaboration in innovation by launching an eco-friendly lid to complement the eco-friendly cup the two companies introduced in 2006.
The ecotainer® hot cup lid is made from polylactic acid, a renewable resource, as opposed to polystyrene, a non-renewable resource. The lid is the only compostable hot cup lid to be manufactured in the U.S. It is certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) and meets the ASTM standard for compostability, which means it can be composted in municipal and industrial composting facilities.
