Eco-Products’ ZERO Line of Hot, Cold Cups Reduces Carbon Impact

Eco-Products, which makes foodservice products from renewable resources and recycled content, offers ZERO by Eco-Products, a line of hot cups and cold cups whose carbon impacts have been measured and fully offset through a partnership with leading carbon offset provider Renewable Choice Energy.

The carbon offsets for the ZERO line are informed by two years of product life cycle analysis work done by Eco-Products in an effort to better understand the cradle-to-grave environmental impacts associated with their complete product portfolio.

“As for many companies that undertake LCA work, it has been eye-opening to see where in the supply chain our carbon impacts are the largest,” said Claudia Capitini, Sustainability Maven for Eco-Products. “Now the really exciting work begins as we search for creative ways to reduce our carbon footprint across the entire business and empower our customers to use this information in their own efforts to quantify the impact their businesses have on the planet.”

“Eco-Products has long been a national leader in sustainability,” said Quayle Hodek, CEO of Renewable Choice Energy. “By measuring and offsetting the carbon impacts of their new Zero line of cups, Eco-Products is setting an even higher bar for environmental responsibility.”

Eco-Products is now offering customers the ability to receive customized reports detailing the life cycle impacts of their purchases, enabling universities, hospitals, corporate campuses and others to understand the true environmental impacts associated with their foodservice packaging.

The Zero Line is another addition to the company’s GreenStripe family of products made from 100 renewable resources; both the hot cup and cold cup meet ASTM standards for compostability.
