PET is a widely recycled plastic in the world. In North America alone 1.6 billion lbs of PET thermoforms are discarded every year with only about 10% being recovered. The amount of PET thermoforms available for recovery is a real opportunity and a big step on closed loop recycling. Recovered PET thermoformed containers can easily become another food container if we can make sure we revover them.
01. Its a valuable stream that can reduce the use of virgin
PET recycling technologies can take up to 100% postconsumer material to create new packaging.
02. Waste divertion
For every thermoform we recycle we reduce GHG gas emmisions and avoid landfills
03. Unintended ocean bottom contamination
PET is denser than water so if by any chance they find their way into a river and / or ocean, they will sink making it practically imposible to recover
04. Reducing food waste
PET packaging has and will continue to reduce food waste by providing unique properties that keeps food in great conditions longer
