Food packaging supplier Sovereign has launched the new GoodLife bio sip-lid, which is 100% compostable and features eco-friendly appearance.
Made from bagasse, the fibrous matter that remains after sugarcane or sorghum stalks are crushed to extract their juice, the domed lid is easy to drink from. It will biodegrade with general food waste after use.
The GoodLife bio sip-lid can be used even with the hottest drinks. It features a visual of the brand icon Eco the Friendly Frog and the word compostable, making it recognizable as an environmentally friendly product instantly.
Bagasse has flexible sturdiness and enables the sip-lid to fit tightly on all 90mm diameter 12oz and 16oz paper hot cups.
The lid stays securely on the cup even if the cup is tipped over, as confirmed by tests.
Sovereign commercial director Danny Feldman said, "The GoodLife® bio sip-lid looks, feels and is the most eco-friendly lid on the market today."
The introduction of the GoodLife bio sip-lid is protected with European Community Design Registration.
