Made from 100% recycled fibres and certified* according to the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®). How2Recycle® has also prequalified this tray as widely recyclable in Canada and the United States if clean and dry. Our cardboard tray uses SurfSHIELDTM Plus, a water-based barrier coating just as effective as polymer.

Our solution therefore contains no plastic or wax, making it fully recyclable.
