Research shows that post-consumer recycled PET (rPET) is more sustainable than both compostable packaging materials and virgin PET. We have been using recycled bottles in our manufacturing since 2008, and are now actively pursuing even more recycled thermoformed PET in our products.
In the beginning of 2020, we acquired our own recycling and reclaiming facility, Direct Pack Recycling (read more). With capacity to recycle 20,000 tons of PET plastic, it allows us to move closer to a full circle manufacturing process. We’ve built personal relationships with North American MRFs (material recovery facilities) to source bales of post-consumer recycled PET bottles and mixed PET thermoformed containers.
