Fiber-based consumer packaging giant Graphic Packaging International has partnered with healthy eating outlet Picadeli to develop a new range of plastic-free paperboard lids for its paper-based salad bowls.
Reportedly, the high level of performance of the new paperboard lids means Picadeli can replace its entire line of plastic lids, eliminating another 250 metric tons of plastic from its supply chain every year.
The new lids are recyclable in household paper waste streams and are made from renewable plant-based fiber sourced from sustainably managed forests.
The innovation reportedly offers a secure snap closure system that represents an upgrade on the performance of Picadeli’s previous solution. It means the company can now offer a salad bowl and lid combination that is both free of plastic and offers excellent functionality.
