Norland International: Oxo-biodegradable cap

Norland International’s LDPE caps for 5-gal. water bottles, sold under the Earth Cap trade name, contain a proprietary additive that accelerates the degradation process. 
Total degradation occurs in 5 to 10 years. The injection molded Earth Cap--a replacement for traditional LDPE caps--also features a biodegradable non-adhesive tamper-evident label and 2-mm foam seal, making the entire cap structure totally biodegradable.  Caps have a 2-year shelf life and offer the same performance as current versions. FDA compliant.
