|Sustainable solutions with Bare™|
Our Bare™ range of sustainable single-use foodservice products, by Solo Cup Europe, is the industry’s most extensive range of single-use products, with a broad environmental platform.
Bare isn’t just a product line, it’s a philosophy focussed on bringing alternative resources for the environment; from sourcing closed loop sustainable solutions to the use of recycled and compostable material.
The new Bare™ range uses a variety of materials to provide sustainable solutions; but what are these materials, and how are they sourced?
rPET offer the excellent clarity you expect, with the sustainability you desire.
Solo Cup Europe is a co-sponsor Closed Loop Recycling’s Office Recycling Scheme and is also working in partnership with Closed Loop Recycling to obtain rPET material. Solo Cup Europe will be supplied with 20% of Closed Loop Recycling’s rPET, which will have been derived from the PET products collected from offices. This rPET flake material meets EU regulations for food contact use
