Earthlid was developed over the last three years to provide a sustainable and healthy solution to single use plastic coffee lids. It is made from European grade food safe silicone, a BPA free material derived from natural earth elements. Earthlid is a registered design in the European Union as well as bearing both design and mechanical patents in the US.
Earthlid solves the worst part of our to-go coffee cup reality, the plastic lid. Most current lids are made from polystyrene which are not recyclable, and often end up in our oceans. Styrene is the base material of polystyrene lids which is known to be toxic at elevated temperatures. New polypropylene lids are an improvement from polystyrene as they are recyclable, but they are more expensive and still end up in our oceans.
As there is no absolute standard of cup rim size, the Earthlid was engineered to fit most of the current paper coffee cups on the market. The reusable lid easily fits on most 12-20 oz paper cups and 16 oz wax beverage cups. The rotating strap creates a leak tight seal function for transport. The ergonomic design creates an improved drinking experience. Earthlid also eliminates the need for a straw on a regular size cold cup. Earthlid’s design extends over the rim, which eliminates the disaster of a plastic lid popping off when bumped or knocked over.
