ecotainer™ Hot Cups

ecotainer™ hot cups and lids are part of a range of single-use, commercially compostable* foodservice packaging made from renewable raw materials. The cups are made from paper with a PLA biopolymer coating, and the lids are made from a PLA biopolymer.  

ecotainer kraft sleeves are also commercially compostable, rounding out a full hot beverage packaging solution for consumers to place in a single bin. 

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

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

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