A new innovation
Why didn't we think of that?
So much innovation in such a fundamentally simple product.
You can drink from the rim as you would normally do. Single use plastic is replaced with fiber and the lid can thereby be recycled or composted. It uses less material than the alternatives and also provides stability to the drinking cup.
A world-unique standard of cup lids
The new solution
Having drawn the first prototype there was a lot of work put into the details and one important thing for the lid was that it was going to be easy to drink from and that one should be able to drink naturally. Having come up with the solution to drink from the rim of the cup solved that problem.
The demand for alternatives to single-use plastics is growing fast as the bans take place over the world.
Benefits of the Liplid
The cup lid is made of 100% recyclable material, cellulose fibers from pine and sprouce.
The manufacturing of Liplid requires 25% less materials than other lids due to its uniques design and thereby using a more environmentally friendly manufacturing process.
The new and revolutionary design gives a stabilizing effect to the coffee cup itself while maintaining its own physical properties exposed to hot coffee/water.
The lids are 100% plastic free, made from fluff pulp from pine and sprouce.
Makes it easy to drink on the move
Liplid sets a new standard for cup lids adapted to all types of cups intended for serving both hot and cold drinks.
The lids stabilizes the cup, making it firmer to grip and eliminates the risk of it tipping over or the lid coming off.
Working together for a sustainable planet
To protect the environment and human health,
the EU Waste Framework Directive has two key objectives:
- To prevent and reduce the negative impacts caused by the generation and management of waste
- To improve resource efficiency
The Directive defines a 'hierarchy' to be applied by EU Member States
in waste management, where waste prevention and re-use are the most
preferred options, followed by recycling (including composting), then energy recovery,
while waste disposal through landfills should be the very last resort.
The first step on the waste ladder is about reducing the cause of waste.
A lot of things are bought and then just thrown away. much of what we buy is not made to reuse or recycle. Waste occurs during manufacturing of the product, when it is packaged and when it is thrown away. We need to reduce our consumption.
The second step to reduce waste is to reuse the things we already have.
Reusinging can be done by eg. donation, renting, selling or buying things second hand.
This means that things can be used over and over again, either by yourself or by someone else, without having to buy new ones.
The third step is about material recycling
Recycling is the process where disposed items are separated, collected, and processed to manufacture an entirely new product. Recycling is preferred when waste can’t be reused. Glass bottles, metal cans, paper, certain plastcs and newspapers are materials that we recycle today.
A world-unique standard
Easy to use
Easy to cool
Easy to drink
The winner in the ‘Packaging Materials and Components’ category. The panel’s reasoning:
”LipLid is a winner because it is a better, safer and more enjoyable way to drink ‘on the go’.
100% recyclable and 100% bio-degradable.”
What are the lids made of?
The lids from Liplid are made from either a mixture of bamboo and bagasse or from pure wood fibers. In both cases the fibres are recyclable. Bamboo and bagasse are sourced in Asia and the wood fibres are sourced primarily from spruce and pine grown in Scandinavia and/or the Nordics.
Where are the lids produced?
Initially the lids are manufactured in China and by mid 2024 we will in addition to that also manufacture within the EU.
What sizes are the lids available in?
Currently we offer both 80 mm and the 90 mm lids.
The 80 mm lids are suitable for 8 oz cups and the 90 mm lids are suitable for 10, 12 and 16 oz cups.
Are the lids a sustainable choice?
Absolutely. The lids use approximately 30-45% less material than other fibre-based lids on the market depending on brand. Liplids are 100% plastic free, fully biodegradable and 100% recyclable.
What colours do the lids come in?
Do the lids fit all cups available?
