There are many materials that disposables come in today, each of which has its own particular use and benefits. Commonly, aluminium, foam and paper are used, but this range has been significantly extended over the years to now include environmentally friendly packaging and PET formed products, which are ideal for when a little more style and presentation is required.
Choose an Eco-Friendly Option - These days, consumers have a much greater assortment of clear tableware and cutlery to choose from, including a bevy of green alternatives. Many of these products are made using sustainable practices that are better for the planet and are comprised of more eco-friendly materials that can be recycled more easily than traditional plastic or even paper tableware. Renewable plastics, such as bioplastics, are made from renewable resources and are a cost-effective and ecologically sound alternative to petroleum-based tableware products. Other clear tableware products are made from PET, or post-consumer recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate. The "PET" or "PETE" acronym on plastic products (including tableware) simply indicates it was made from recycled materials.
Recycle Approved Products - Before you purchase clear tableware, check if it can be recycled. If food can easily be cleaned from the product and if it has a recycling symbol (often located on the bottom of the product), it generally can be recycled through local county or municipality-sanctioned recycling programs. Most PET products can be recycled since they were made initially with recycled products.
