4 videos: 4 insights into our very own circular economy

How do we boost the food and beverage service and convenience packaging circular economy? In some cases, we can make use of recycled materials.

ILPA makes and use recycled PET (rPET), turning PET bottles into new food-grade quality packaging

To ensure their suitability for contact with food, our products must always be made of the highest quality raw material inputs. In a majority of cases, this means we must use virgin raw materials. These can and should be recycled.

The French foodservice packaging company CEE Schisler works with Greenwishes and Papeterie Raon to collect and recycle cups into bags

As the collaboration illustrates, making that happen requires separate networks to be setup to collect these valuable resources separately before they can be recycled in specialised recycling plants.

Stora Enso teams up with Huhtamaki to provide, separately collect and recycle paper cups into cardboard at the 2017 Lahti ski competition

This requires foresight and infrastructure to make it possible. It also requires the guidance to encourage consumers to participate in the separate collection.

Fost Plus’ campaigns encourage consumers to dispose of their used products in offices and public spaces, just as they would at home

These are some of the initiatives that make our circular economy happen. You can help us grow our circular economy by supporting increased separate collection for recycling through consumer education, investment in new collection infrastructure or in repurposing of existing infrastructure, as well as the facilitation of markets for the materials from our products once recycled, among others.
