Happy Earth Day! We are so excited to celebrate Earth Day and share our sustainable initiative in 2021 with you. Not only have we saved resources from using post-consumer recycled PET plastic but also repurposed them into new food packaging. The commitment to sustainability has been part of our core values for a long time, and we are happy to see the progress as we are moving into a fully circular business model.
By using post-consumer PET plastic, we reduce the environmental impact of using plastic. Recycled PET has a lower carbon footprint than virgin plastic. We also prevent plastics from ending up in landfills and oceans. We help to conserve non-renewable natural resources by reducing the need for new raw material. BOTTLEBOX® is sustainable packaging made from recycled beverage bottles, and can be recycled again and again!
The BOTTLEBOX® used 9.8 billion recycled bottles from 2011 to 2021, saving 226 million pounds of plastic from ending up in landfills and the ocean.
BOTTLEBOX is made from post-consumer recycled beverage bottles and is embossed with the number of bottles it takes to make it.
As a food packaging manufacturer, we believe it is our responsibility to minimize the environmental impact of using plastic and drive incentives for Material Recovery Facilities (MRFs) to collect, sort and bale PET thermoforms. We have partnered with multiple local MRFs and by purchasing their bales of PET, we increase their incentive to collect even more. By March 2022, we have reclaimed and recycled over 49.2 million pounds of plastic at Direct Pack Recycling.
When you recycle your PET packaging, we can reclaim and repurpose them back into brand new packaging. Please recycle all your PET packaging.
