DPR is an important step in our vertical integration. It allows us to move closer to a full circle recycling process. We’ve built personal relationships with North American Material Recovery Facilities to source bales of post-consumer recycled PET bottles and mixed PET thermoformed containers. By creating value for the recycled PET bales, we are driving the demand for them to invest in collecting and sorting thermoforms, thus improving the recycling infrastructure.
BOTTLEBOX® is the strongest brand in sustainable food packaging today. They are made of post-consumer recycled PET plastic, which is the most recycled plastic in the world. In 2020 alone, we used the equivalent of 2 billion recycled PET bottles.
