BOULDER, Colo.

Eco-Products®, the nation’s leading brand of foodservice products made
from renewable resources and recycled content, is proud to announce “ZEROTM
by Eco-Products”, a line of hot cups and cold cups whose carbon impacts
have been measured and fully offset through a partnership with leading
carbon offset provider Renewable Choice Energy.

The carbon offsets for the ZERO™ line are informed by two years of
product Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) work done by Eco-Products in an effort
to better understand the cradle-to-grave environmental impacts
associated with their complete product portfolio.

“As for many companies that undertake LCA work, it has been eye-opening
to see where in the supply chain our carbon impacts are the largest,”
said Claudia Capitini, Sustainability Maven for Eco-Products. “Now the
really exciting work begins as we search for creative ways to reduce our
carbon footprint across the entire business and empower our customers to
use this information in their own efforts to quantify the impact their
businesses have on the planet.”

“Eco-Products has long been a national leader in sustainability,” said
Quayle Hodek, CEO of Renewable Choice Energy. “By measuring and
offsetting the carbon impacts of their new Zero™ line of cups,
Eco-Products is setting an even higher bar for environmental
responsibility.”

Eco-Products is now offering customers the ability to receive customized
reports detailing the life cycle impacts of their purchases, enabling
Universities, Hospitals, Corporate Campuses, and others to understand
the true environmental impacts associated with their foodservice
packaging. For more information on these reports and all things related
to the impact assessment at Eco-Products please visit: http://www.ecoproducts.com/impact_assessment.html

The Zero™ Line is another addition to the company’s GreenStripe® family
of products made from 100% renewable resources; both the hot cup and
cold cup meet ASTM standards for compostability.
