We immediately remove any doubts: our containers are made of plastic. We know that plastic is not nice and that it often leads to pollution, but this above all because of its misuse. We believe in reuse and we have chosen the materials with care, based on the life cycle of the product and the needs of our customers: we guarantee that if there was a better material we would have chosen it!
With reCIRCLE ISY we want to give takeaway coffee, frozen yogurt and smoothies an elegant, transparent and insulating packaging. We searched for the right plastic and found what we were looking for in the Tritan.
Tritan is a thermoplastic material that is often used for c. It is transparent, heat resistant, dishwasher safe, tasteless and BPA free. It also does not contain phthalates, i.e. plasticizers, and is unbreakable, an important property in reusable packaging. Due to its characteristics it is suitable for sterilization and is widely used in the medical field and for early childhood.Our Tritan has already been extensively tested by numerous control authorities around the world and has been approved for food for a long time.
Our tests in the independent SQTS laboratory have validated worldwide investigations and thus confirmed harmless use in the food industry.
The lids are made of polypropylene, PP for short. It is a plastic that has been used in the packaging industry for years. It has the property of being very resistant to fatigue. That's why the lids close tightly, even after being opened and closed a thousand times.
The materials we use can all be recycled. For this we collect the few worn out reCIRCLE BOX. The manufacturer Stefan Kälin AG from Einsiedeln can re-granulate the reCIRCLE BOX, i.e. grind them, and thus produce new granulate. At the moment we are not allowed to use it for new reCIRCLE BOXES (don't ask us why) but we are trying to understand how to get it back a reCIRCLE BOX without losing the authorization for food use.
