We understand the importance that our products are not only sustainable but also recyclable and re-useable.
We are all aware of the issue surrounding single use plastic, this is why we are committed to promoting our products as recyclable and re-useable. Every pot, bucket, lid or cap we sell can be 100% recycled or reused. Once a tamper seal has been broken the container and lids can still be used.
Depending on the application you require we can provide buckets made from post consumer recycled material. We are actively researching food safe recycled pots and hope to have something in place in the near future.
Our food safe buckets are not made from recycled plastic. The chance of contamination from what they contained previously or what the plastic was used for before is too great a to risk to be certified as food safe. Our food safe buckets are 100% virgin plastic. Manufacturers are striving towards a fully recycled food safe plastic container. There are many alternatives on the market at present, but there are draw backs. The natural plant based pots have a limited shelf life. The recycled PET plastic cannot be hot filled.
At this moment, for food use, there is no alternative to the robustness and versatility of the virgin polypropylene plastic bucket or pot, but as soon as there is we will be sure to offer it.
