Our materials & how to dispose of them

Our range of eco-friendly packaging gives you access to products made from natural, sustainable and renewable materials - so your customers can have complete peace of mind that they’re buying the best in the business, without the need to harm the planet.

Polylactic Acid (PLA) products

PLA materials are unique and bio-based, made from plants instead of oil. The production of PLA requires fewer fossil fuel resources and generates fewer greenhouse gases compared to most traditional plastics.

PLA looks and feels like traditional plastic packaging; it’s strong and durable to protect food and retain freshness. The products are crystal clear, offering excellent presentation to your customers.

Moulded fibre

Moulded fibre consists of natural non-wood (not from trees) fibres, such as bamboo, sugar cane and reed - all of which are renewable and sustainable resources. These high-quality products are strong, rigid and fully compostable, providing a great alternative to polystyrene and plastic food packaging.

They are also suitable for use in cold cabinets and microwaves, resisting water temperatures of up to 100°c and oil temperatures of up to 150°c - making them great options for protective packaging within the catering industry.

Other materials

Other materials used in our eco-friendly packaging include wood, recycled paper, unbleached corrugated board, cellulose and limestone.

Compostable packaging: What, How and Why?

Compostable packaging is made from materials which can disintegrate into the earth, without causing toxicity - and with major retailers now coming round to this way of thinking, compostable packaging is growing ever-popular within the food industry. As a supplier of Vegware products, we share in their commitment to producing low carbon catering disposables, delivering the best packaging waste recycling solutions and ensuring packaging materials can be collected for composting.

From reduced emissions during the manufacturing process to helping to reduce landfill waste and creating nutrient-rich soil, there are a number of benefits to choosing compostable packaging. Through the use of biodegradable packaging, we can bring you - and, in turn, your customers - the very best products, all while reducing our footprint on the planet.

Here at R+R Packaging, we work with a number of leading industry influencers to provide our customers with a variety of recyclable, eco-friendly and biodegradable packaging options, including Vegware, Go-Pak and Celebration. From edible straws that can be personalised with your branding to palm leaf tableware sourced directly from trees, we’re passionate about striving for a plastic-free future. We’re always on the lookout for upcoming innovative products in this space and have recently been testing items from ButterflyCup and Frugalpac - so keep an eye on our site for more updates coming soon!
