Market leader in food storage and hydration, Sistema® recently introduced its first Ocean Bound Plastic range made from post-consumer recycled plastic.
Generated within a 50km radius of coast lines, ocean bound plastic refers to plastic waste that has been improperly disposed of on land, shores, waterways and river areas, which poses a risk of polluting the ocean. Plastic waste that is disposed of properly in landfills or organised dump sites is not categorised as ocean bound. It is currently estimated that this type of plastic generates 80% of plastic marine litter. The new range is made using ocean bound plastic and virgin polypropylene.
Comprising two bottles and three snack and lunch storage solutions, the new range is made using 35% ocean bound plastic, 50% for the ReviveTM bottle. Featuring two new designs to the Sistema® offering, the ReviveTM bottle and the Slide ‘n’ SnackTM , and a selection of some of Sistema’s best-selling snack, lunch and drink bottle designs, including the SwiftTM bottle, RibbonTM Lunch with Mini BiteTM and Bento Cube with Yogurt Pot.
The new range has been designed to help decrease plastic waste that presents this risk, as well as reduce the number of single-use bottles dumped into landfill. Like all Sistema® products, the new products are durable, reusable and are compliant with all food safety requirements and are BPA-free.
At the end of life, this product range can be recycled via Sistema’s partnership with TerraCycle, global leader in recycling hard-to-recycle products.
Inspired by oceanic and natural hues, Sistema’s new products are available in two tonal colours, Teal Stone and Mountain Blue. The full range can be purchased in-store and online at select Sainsbury’s and the SwiftTM Bottle and Bento Cube with Yogurt Pot are available via Amazon.
