Eco-Friendly Packaging

With the world now painfully aware of the importance of an environmental consciousness and increasingly engaged in efforts to reduce our global carbon footprint, businesses must take action to reduce unnecessary waste and wear their green company badge with pride. For food and drink outlets and catering companies, this is where our extensive range of eco-friendly packaging products comes in.

From drinks cups and lids to salad bowls and eco-friendly takeaway bags, here at R+R Packaging, we take our commitment to moving towards a plastic-free future seriously - which is why environmentally-friendly packaging options are a key part of our product catalogue. This way, we can help the brands we work with to share in our green mission and, in turn, give their customers a chance to do the same.

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 - giving your customers complete peace of mind that they’re not contributing to global environmental issues such as plastic waste by shopping with you, while still being able to count on the highest product quality.

 

Polylactic Acid (PLA) products

PLA materials are unique and bio-based, made from plants rather than oil. The production of polylactic acid 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 fibres (in other words, not from trees), 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 an eco-friendly alternative to polystyrene and plastic food packaging.

Moulded fibres are also suitable for storage in cold cabinets and heating in microwaves, resisting water temperatures of up to 100°c and oil temperatures of up to 150°c - making them highly practical and sustainable 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 - so whatever your product range and related packaging needs, we’re sure to have a planet-friendly replacement for traditional packaging materials.

Why make the switch to compostable packaging?
 

Compostable packaging is made from materials which can disintegrate into the earth, without causing toxicity - and with major retailers throughout all sectors across the globe now becoming part of the collective environmental movement, compostable packaging is growing ever more 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 the environmental impact of all parties

We work with a number of green, industry-leading brands to provide our customers with a variety of recyclable, eco-friendly and biodegradable packaging options, including Vegware, Go-Pak, Celebration and Sabert. From edible straws that can be personalised with your branding to wooden cutlery options which offer a hygienic and biodegradable solution to catering disposables, we’re passionate about striving for a plastic-free future.

We’re always on the lookout for new and innovative products in this space and have recently been testing items from ButterflyCup and Frugalpac - so keep an eye on our site for new additions to our ever-growing eco-friendly packaging collection
