ReCircle has cups, bowls and plates in several sizes. All reCircle containers are made from 30% glass fiber reinforced polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), and cup and container lids are made from Polypropylene (PP). There is no silicone rim to avoid problems with washing. ReCrircle containers are leak proof, microwave safe, dishwasher safe and stackable.
ReCircle cups were developed with coffee providers to be shatterproof and scratch resistant. They are ergonomic, easy to clean, have drainage channels for quick drying and are dishwasher safe for at least 400 uses. Cups do not have a straw option, but work for both hot and cold drinks.
All ReCircle containers are aubergine-colored, but partner locations can order customized containers that are other colors and have the company logo printed on the lid.
ReCircle handles recycling of all products. They send them back to their producer where the material of the old containers is used to produce new containers. All products are sent climate-neutral with the Swiss Post.
Plastic was chosen as the material for containers after considering several other materials: glass easily breaks, aluminum and steel are not microwave friendly, get hot when filled with hot food or drink, and not everyone likes to eat out of a metal container, and wood has hygiene and drying problems.
