All of our plastic items are 100% recyclable and made from R-PET which is a lightweight yet durable plastic that is derived primarily from recycled beverage bottles. It is non-toxic and it is one of the most widely recycled materials in the industry. The material is known for its strength and rigidity, its resistance to most oils, chemicals and solvents, and its attractive gloss surface finish. All of our R-PET products are 100% recyclable after use. In addition to thermoformed products, recycled PET is used back into production of textiles, bottles, carpeting, and strapping.
