The Plastic PET Egg Cartons
Made of 100 percent post-consumer recycled PET, these containers offer superior quality without sacrificing mechanical strength or functionality. These new trays are made with premium flatbed tooling and advanced thermoforming technology.
Most Plastic PET Egg Cartons are recyclable depending on their material composition. Typical supermarket egg cartons are made of paper byproducts, #1 plastics, or Styrofoam. Plastic egg cartons can be placed in your regular recycling bin. Styrofoam, on the other hand, is not accepted by most recycling facilities.
Plastic PET Egg Cartons are more environmentally friendly than their foam counterparts. However, it is still important to recycle them, and it is not possible in every place. While some cities and municipalities provide curbside recycling for Plastic PET Egg Cartons, others do not. You'll have to do some research and extra work to find recycling centers that accept these cartons. Ideally, the best option is to simply avoid buying items in Styrofoam packaging in the first place.
Paper Egg Cartons are compostable, but most consumers do not have access to backyard compost bins or professional composting facilities. Additionally, paper cartons can't break down in landfills because landfills are compacted and anaerobic environments, limiting oxygen and other natural processes necessary for biodegradation.
Plastic Egg Cartons can be recycled, but it is important to remember that the amount of food residue can affect the recycling process. Egg cartons should be empty and clean before being thrown into a recycling bin. When reusing the plastic Egg Cartons, make sure to include them with other paper and plastic recyclables.
