If you want to reduce your ecological footprint then our cold cups are a good option.  Unlike traditional cups that are made from non-renewable petroleum based polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or polypropylene (PP), our cold cups are made from Ingeo™, a biodegradable and compostable plastic made from annually renewable corn.

Not only is Ingeo™derived from annually renewable corn, but it environmentally outperforms every major petroleum based plastic.  Manufacturing of the new Ingeo™ plastic emits 77 percent less CO2 and consumes 56 percent less energy than the equivalent weight of PET.

Our Ingeo™ cold cups are also 100% biodegradable and compostable.  Therefore to lower your footprint even more and to divert waste from landfills, consider composting used cups in a commercial composting facility.

Our Ingeo™cups are strong, durable, and great for cold drinks or foods like ice cream, condiments, yogurt, fruit, nuts, and vegetables.  Sizes range from 2oz portion cups to 24oz drink cups.  We also supply flat and dome lids.
