you know there are currently 8 million tons of plastic in our oceans? Scarily,
at the rate at which we are adding to this, we are in danger of seeing more
plastic in our seas than fish!
We wanted to do our bit to help and so have invested in a
new range of eco-friendly packaging, specifically for the take away food industry. We chose this area to tackle because nearly all
takeaway food cups and containers are single use and adding to landfill at an alarming
everyone knows this, but many coffee cups on the market, although made with
paper which is recyclable, are still actually lined with plastic to stop the
liquid from leaking out. To compound the problem further, there are few
facilities that can separate the plastic from the paper cup, resulting in the
cup not being recycled after all. This is what makes our EcoCup range from
Ecoware, stand out from the crowd. We
have invested in a range of not just disposable coffee cups but also lids, bowls,
containers and cutlery, all of which are made with plants, not oil with a
substance called Ingeo™ Bioplastic PLA.
our Ingeo™ Bioplastic PLA food takeaway packaging; Fully biodegradable and 100%
commercially compostable. What’s more our
company aim is to convert all our customer base to sustainable food packaging
Bioplastic PLA is a substance which is made from a naturally occurring plant
material, which is produced by nature and is annually renewable.
Bioplastic PLA is a thermoplastic with the physical characteristics and
performance of plastic but unlike plastic, it’s biodegradable, compostable and
has a significantly lower carbon footprint than the fossil fuel-based polymer
alternative in on the market.
our Ecoware range you can buy smoothie cups, portion pots, deli bowls, lids and
cutlery, all of which are made using just Ingeo™ Bioplastic. Our coffee cups, ice cream tubs and soup
bowls are still made with paper but lined with Ingeo™ Bioplastic PLA instead of

Did you know that as part of our service to you, we can provide a free of charge report on the packaging you have purchased from us in the last year? Our report contains all the details and information you will need to be able to complete your packaging waste report.
There is now a legal obligation on all UK businesses, that produce or use packaging, to ensure that a percentage of their packaging is recycled. More than 10 million tonnes of packaging waste is generated each year in the UK, 6 million tonnes of which can be potentially recycled.
‘Producer Responsibility Law’ is in place to make sure that businesses who manufacture, import or sell products are responsible for them once they become waste. This law encourages minimisation and recycling of all waste.
If your company has an annual turnover of more than £2 million and handles more than 50 tonnes of packaging a year, you must meet the producer obligations under the packaging regulations. Your business also has an obligation to recycle if you own the packaging and supply it to others, or if you import packaging.
If you are a manufacturer or seller who uses packaging in large volumes, you must get to know the legal position on recycling, you could be prosecuted and fined for non-compliance.
