Can you use these lids be used for very hot beverages?

Yes, our compostable hot beverage lids are heat resistant and can withstand temperatures up to 185°F/85°C. Made from renewable resources such as corn starch, they are an affordable and sustainable option for hot beverages like coffee and tea.

Which kind of hot cup lid is better for the environment – biopolymers or recycled PET plastic? 

Biopolymer hot cup lids are made from renewable plant resources and are compostable in a commercial facility. PET plastics are made from petroleum, a non-renewable resource and are not compostable. While recycled PET plastic is a better choice than virgin PET plastic, the challenge is that only 10% of plastic is actually recycled.
