Just new recyclable packaging, made from old recyclable packaging – simple!
We at London Bio Packaging aim to sell the most sustainable disposables on the market today – and that’s not always the same for every business. But don’t worry – we offer two ranges of eco food packaging, Sustain and Revive. With us, you’re never stuck with just one rigid option or range of packaging. Instead, you can choose the road to sustainability that better suits your business! To read more about what makes our packaging sustainable, take a peek at our FAQs – they’re pretty informative!
The way we see it, there are two sides of the sustainability coin when it comes to disposable packaging: what is it made of and what can you do with it after use.
Our Revive range was designed to check both of those boxes all while offering you the value, variety, and selection your business requires and customers expect. Revive supports the recycling economy. It’s made from recycled materials – and is 100% widely recyclable.

Sustainable Packaging Materials: Recycled Materials
Recycled materials are simply materials that have been used before and then used again – so not wasted to landfill or litter.
You might have wondered what happens after you’ve done the good deed of dropping your plastic into the plastics recycling bin or those old journals into the paper bin? Well, depending on what type of plastic it is it might get down-cycled (recycled into a lower quality product) or up-cycled (recycled into the same product or one of equal quality).
That’s why we love our Revive™ range so much: it’s made from the only plastics that can be up-cycled back into food grade products (rPET mixed with PET). And what does that mean? That our Revive™ range is plastic bottles made from plastic bottles. How cool is that?
rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate) is the most common plastic that is being recycled back into primary
applications (i.e. bottles recycled back into bottles and not ‘down-cycled’ into lesser products like park furniture).
Recycled plastics reduce the amount of fossil fuel resources, have a lower carbon footprint than virgin plastics, divert material from landfill and can themselves be recycled. Our Revive packaging is made with between 20– 100% post-consumer waste.
Recycled paper/card products contribute to the diversion of material from landfill and results
in less land being given over to commercial forestry which can have a negative impact on biodiversity.
Sustainable forest paper ensures that the forests from which the paper comes are managed so as maintain forest integrity.
Sustainable Waste Stream: Widely Recyclable
Widely recyclable not only means that the materials which make a product could be disassembled, remodelled, and used again, but also means that the materials will be recycled as they are accepted for recycling across the UK.
For example rPET mentioned earlier is recycled throughout the UK, as is paper and cardboard.
Though everything is technically recyclable, not everything is recycled – even if you pop it into the recycling bin.
Beyond the limitations of recycling due to food contamination, recycling can be especially confusing because not all regions or boroughs will recycle the same things, bins aren’t always clear, and on top of that, different waste collectors ‘recycle’ different materials.
That’s why choosing products that are widely recyclable, like our Revive range, is so important!
