StalkMarket Products Inc., of Portland, Oregon, a leading provider of compostable tableware and food packaging, has launching the world’s first Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI)-certified compostable Ingeo hot cup and lid system, available immediately.

From cup to lid, the complete hot beverage container and lid meets the rigorous composting requirements of BPI and standards from the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

StalkMarket’s Planet+ line of compostable products are engineered to tolerate more than 200 degrees (F) of wet heat and compost in 60 to 90 days in commercial composting facilities.

The hot cups and lids are made using Ingeoô renewable plant-based plastics from NatureWorks LLC, replacing petroleum-based products without having to sacrifice performance or economics.
