When we think about recycling, we generally think about the products we buy and their packaging. But some #5 polypropylene plastic products and packages never even make it into consumer’s hands. These “post-industrial” or “pre-consumer” products may be defective, printed improperly, or simply overstock that was never used. We’ve partnered with Coca-Cola to produce a range of cups made out of their pre-consumer coke lids. Currently, we stock black, pink, and orange cups.
Recycled plastics offer a variety of benefits. They decrease waste sent to landfills, reduce the use of non-renewable resources, like natural gas and oil, decrease energy use and decrease emissions of carbon dioxide. With the growing supply of recycled PP, our mission is to switch our entire production to recycled plastic.
Globelet products are designed to last – our oldest cups have been traveling around New Zealand more than five years now! When the time comes, old and damaged products are recycled. Our products can also be recycled through any regional recycling system.
