Fiasco Pints are made from 100% post-consumer recycled PET plastic. That means our jars used to be jars. And they will be jars again, because PET plastic is one of the most widely recycled materials. And 94% percent of North American households have access to PET recycling.
The design of the jar with the lid truly encourages up cycling. Check out the hashtag #recyclehappiness to see how some of our fans reuse the containers for all sorts of things!
Because it’s the best truly recyclable packaging we could find that allowed us to showcase our product and have the feature of a screw top lid. Most ice cream and gelato is in “paper” cartons, which are actually laminated combinations of fibre-board and several layers of polyethylene plastic, which is not actually recyclable, like most coffee cups. When these cartons do get “recycled”, they don’t get recycled back into cartons. They are waste and end up in the land fill.
