Jimmy's Iced Coffee has lined up plant-based caps for its namesake RTD coffee brand, as the UK company looks to reduce its environmental impact.

The plant-based caps are the same as plastic in terms of strength and weight, according to Jimmys Iced Coffee

The UK start-up said today that the new bio-based caps will roll out from next month. The move is part of Jimmy's plan to use fully-renewable packaging and be "plastic-free by 2020".

The energy used to create the caps is generated by sugarcane plants "instead of fossil fuels", the company said, while the new caps cut CO2 output by 50%, compared to the original plastic cap.

"It's really important our packaging is as sustainable as possible," said co-founder Jim Cregan. "We're working hard to become plastic free, so bringing in bio-based caps was the natural next step.

"To now have a carton that is made predominantly from plants ... reduces our environmental footprint even further. We know there s a lot more to be done but using caps made from a renewable sugar cane source is a strong start and something we're stoked about."
