, a company specializing in sustainable and environmentally friendly food-service ware, has unveiled its newest product: a biodegradable cup lid!
Incredibly, it's the first of its kind in North America, now making it possible to compost your entire coffee cup.
Steve Kurowski, marketing manager of Eco-Products, has this to say about the lid, which will be available to coffee shops this April: "The EcoLid is totally original. A 'plastic' lid made from plants, not oil, will save resources and, where possible, can be diverted from the landfill into commercial compost facilities. Just another small step in saving non-renewable resources and decreasing what has to go to the landfill. It all adds up."
Eco-Products, which recently opened its first retail store
, focuses on making products from corn and sugarcane, thereby reducing our need for foreign oil.
Reduce foreign oil while enjoying fair trade BARACKTI Chai in a completely compostable cup and lid? Yeah, I'll sip to that.
