ecotainer™ Food Containers 

ecotainer™ food containers are made from paper, which is made from plant-based fiber from sustainably managed forests, with a PLA biopolymer coating from Ingeo®. The lids are made from the PLA biopolymer. The range is commercially compostable where facilities exist, with ASTM and BPI certifications for compostability, so it’s an excellent choice where this is a requirement, often the case in universities and businesses. 

ecotainer food containers are available in a stock design or can be custom printed with a company logo or design.  

ecotainer products decrease our reliance on fossil-based coatings and meet 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.
