What we use:
The main ingredient in our lovely big pots is PP (polypropylene) along with a cardboard outer sleeve. The PP pot can be recycled if you have the right system where you live. Who knows, it could have a whole new life as a cosy fleece or a compost bin. And the wrapper? Just peel it off and recycle it with all your other paper and cardboard.
Keeping everything fresh, the seal is aluminium, and the outer lid is PET plastic.
Why we use it:
This combo makes for a pot strong enough to hold a sharing size helping of our delicious plant-based alternative to yogurt, keeping it perfectly fresh until you dive in.
What makes us happy:
Right now, we need the plastic to keep everything watertight but at least adding the cardboard means we can use less of it.
The fact that the cup and sleeve are both fully recyclable.
Once we’ve found an alternative to aluminium, our cups will be 100% recyclable.
What we’re working on:
Change the virgin paper sleeve to recycled paper version.
A more sustainable, recyclable solution to that aluminium seal just as soon as someone invents it. Trust us, we’re on it.
And while we’re on it, we’ll also find a better solution for the single use PET lid.
