Organic tea capsules are made from certified circular polypropylene that uses feedstock made from used plastic.
Avoury, a new brand launched by Melitta Single Portions, is working with Sabic’s Trucircle portfolio of offerings to create its new premium organic tea capsules made from certified circular polypropylene (PP) that uses feedstock made from used plastic. The launch represents an exciting step towards a more sustainable future with products that are easier to recycle and that help to create a circular economy for plastics, according to Sabic.
Avoury was reportedly one of the first companies to adopt Sabic’s Trucircle offering for certified circular PP - Sabic Qrystal copolymer, which creates the capsules from post-consumer recycled material. The capsules are made specifically for the new Avoury One tea machine. The transparent, lightweight and heat-resistant design preserves the quality of the tea leaves, addresses food safety regulations and allows consumers to see the tea inside the capsule.
Sabic says its Trucircle portfolio showcases the company’s journey towards closing the loop and creating a circular economy for plastics and can help manufacturers reduce plastic waste by using sustainable materials. The Trucircle portfolio spans design for recyclability, mechanically recycled products, certified circular products from feedstock recycling of used plastic and certified renewables products from bio-based feedstock.
