Our little home planet deserves a greener, more sustainable future. That’s why we aim for continual improvement in reducing water, energy, and waste and positively supporting our people.
Unfortunately, not. Plastic products need to meet a few requirements before they’re able to be recycled. These are 1) the products need to be designed for recycling and 2) there needs to be recycling infrastructure. When we talk about infrastructure we don’t just mean places where the plastic gets sorted and recycled. We also need consumers to help us by recycling our products, and for more brands to use this same material stream to create new and similar products. One of the reasons some types of plastic can’t be recycled is that there’s no market for that particular plastic. It’s best to check what plastics your curbside collection allows for.
The glue on product labels usually impedes recycling, so we’re using alternative adhesives that make label removal and product recycling easier. We also partnered with How2Recycle to create simple and clear recycling instructions for all of our Bistro plastic containers.
How2Recycle is a labeling system that makes recycling instructions easy for everyone! It includes a coalition of forward-thinking brands who are all united in using smart packaging labels to empower consumers to recycle better.
Recycling Bistro Bowls is easy!

2. Plastic tray: rinse and recycle
3. Plastic cup: do not recycle
*check locally – not recycled in all communities
We’re joining our parent company, Bonduelle, in setting the goal of designing all plastic packaging to be 100% recyclable and/or reusable by 2025!
