Our coffee cup extras have been designed and developed specifically for our EcoCup range to ensure a superior drinking experience for your customers.
Our robust product development process ensures a secure lid fit and leak proof drinking time after time.
Our plant-based lid is made from naturally advanced Ingeo™ providing a significantly lower carbon footprint than the fossil fuel based polymers that it replaces, because the manufacture of Ingeo™ emits fewer greenhouse gasses (GHGs) than the comparable manufacture of all common petrochemical-based plastic1. The innovation of turning plants into plastic, allows us to exclude non-renewable resources (such as oil) from the production of our EcoCup clear cup line.
In a situation where an eco-friendly alternative is not readily available, fit for purpose or brand favourable, we do our best to provide you with the next best alternative. Hence, we also offer a PS Recyclable lid, recycling code 6. Different regions throughout New Zealand have different recycling processes and policies. We encourage you check with your local council if Recycle code 6 can be accepted in your region.
