To counteract the environmentally harmful disposable packaging of to-go gastronomy with a sustainable solution, the Swiss company reCIRCLE has developed a range of reusable boxes and bowls with lids. These extremely durable containers can be taken to restaurants as part of a reusable system and returned to any participating restaurant. In Germany, 330 restaurants are part of the system; in Switzerland, 1,400 restaurants are already participating. However, the offer is not only aimed at classic restaurants, but also at delivery and meal services as well as schools and companies. The reCIRCLE BOX is much more ecological than disposable tableware: it pays for itself after just seven reuses.

The durable boxes are manufactured in Switzerland from the plasticizer-free plastic polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) with the addition of 30% glass fibers. The composition of the material of the reCIRCLE BOX in the final result is quick-drying and heat-resistant, while being BPA-free and completely vegan. All color pigments are also food grade. The lid is made of polypropylene (PP). Since no official recycling streams yet exist for either plastic, the company takes back boxes that are no longer usable itself and processes them into granules. Unfortunately, this is currently not allowed to be used for the production of new food packaging. Therefore, the company defines its ecological advantage mainly by the high durability of the boxes, whose design has been optimized for frequent rinsing and good through-drying in the catering industry.
