The ecotainer™ hot cup is part of a revolutionary new line of foodservice packaging that provides a more environmentally sensitive alternative to traditional disposables. Sourced from fully renewable resources, these cups use a corn-based plastic as a moisture barrier rather than a petro-chemical. This new PLA-based coating also makes the cup compostable in municipal and commercial composting facilities. Combined with a smaller manufacturing energy requirement, the ecotainer™ hot cup reduces our environmental impact while providing all the functionality of a standard cup. Our customer's won't be able to tell a difference, but the environment will!
