The BOTTLEBOX®, launched in 2008 by Direct Pack, is the original take-out food container made from post-consumer recycled PET beverage bottles.

With Direct Pack’s vertical integration and full circle business model, we are able to recycle and reclaim used PET bottles and packaging, and use it to manufacture new thermoformed packaging – all in-house!

In our full-circle process, we use post-consumer recycled PET bottles and thermoformed packaging to make new food containers. At Direct Pack Recycling we sort, wash and flake recycled PET material that then goes to one of our thermoforming facilities to be turned into new strawberry, lettuce, salad, or take-out containers. After use, our containers can be recycled again – they are not garbage, but a valuable infinite resource.

We want our packaging back! Recycle all your PET packaging. Just look for the number 1!
