MATERIAL TRANSPARENCY

We are dedicated to work in the best interest of our customers. We ensure that we use materials that keep our product lines sustainable for the environment and safe for human interaction. All our supplies are 100% recyclable or compostable. Here is an overview of our current product materials.  

Sugarcane / Bagasse / Pulp

Food packaging made from plant-based renewable resources derived from bagasse or bamboo.

Most of pulp packaging is certified for industrial and home compostability (depending on what material they are made of) and is recyclable only in certain communities where the appropriate recycling systems exist.

 

Certifications for individual products will be displayed in product details and material knowledge

Crystalized Polyactic Acid (CPLA)

Food packaging and caterware made from bioplastics derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch, tapioca roots, or sugarcane. CPLA products are not recyclable. The material is fully biobased and certified compostable in a industrial installation.

 

Well suited for cold and warm food applications from 35°F to 185°F

Laminated Pulp (LAM)

Laminated pulp is reheatable and can be microwaved. It is only industrially compostable

Polyethylene
Terepthalate (PET)

Food packaging made from virgin-plastic and a minimum of 30% recycled plastic sourced from external post-industrial and post-consumer recycling streams. PET food packaging is generally accepted in all communities where recycling systems exist.

 

Well suited for cold foods and will not soak through

Polypropylene (PP)

Food packaging made from clear, lightweight and 100% virgin-plastic. PP Clear is recyclable only in certain communities where the appropriate recycling systems exist. Best suited for long term storage and transportation.

 

Recycling code – 5

Crystallized
Polyethylene
Terepthalate (CPET)

Food packaging made from virgin-plastic and up to 30% recycled plastic sourced from external post-industrial and post-consumer recycling streams. It is another form of PET that when crystallized, becomes able to withstand very high temperatures making it perfect for oven ready applications. CPET food packaging is recyclable only in certain communities where the appropriate recycling systems exist.
