Cereplast Inc. says its Compostables-brand resins are being used to make promotional coffee mugs by Quickpoint Inc. of Fenton, Mo.
Compostables are starch-modified polylactic acid and can withstand the high temperatures of hot beverages and are microwaveable, according Cereplast, based in Hawthorne, Calif.
“We collaborated with Quickpoint to design and develop a product that could be used like any other mug, but with the advantage of being nearly 100 percent bio-based,” said Cereplast Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Frederic Scheer in a news release.
Quickpoint offers the mugs — a traditional mug and a commuter mug — as part of its EcoAd line. The firm specializes in making a range of acrylic promotional items.
