ecotainer™ Cold Cups 

ecotainer™ cold cups are part of a range of single-use, commercially compostable* foodservice packaging. With the look and performance of paper, the cup is made from paper with a PLA biopolymer coating, a naturally advanced plant-based material. ecotainer lids are also made from a PLA biopolymer. 

ecotainer cold cups and lids carry the ASTM and BPI certifications for commercial compostability*, so they are an excellent choice where this is a requirement, often the case in universities and businesses.  

ecotainer cold cups are available in two stock designs or can be custom printed with a company logo or custom design. 

ecotainer decreases dependence on fossil-derived raw materials and reduces the amount of waste being sent to landfills thanks to its compostability. The product line also meets Sustainable Forestry Initiative® standards, ensuring that the fiber used comes from sustainably managed forests.  

*Compostable in most commercial composting facilities – please check with your local municipality for acceptance or visit to find a composting facility in North America.
