Recycline Inc. of Waltham has expanded its reusable polypropylene Preserve Tableware collection to include tumblers in addition to two sizes of plates and three cutlery offerings. The 16-ounce tumblers have a suggested retail price of $5.50 for a pack of 10 in either pear green or ocean teal.
The product creator contracts with five custom injection molders and directs use of 100 percent recycled PP in manufacturing elements of the collection as well as personal-care items such as toothbrushes, tongue cleaners and razors. The firm notes its tableware is durable and dishwasher-safe in comparison to competing polystyrene products. The Preserve-brand products are recyclable through local programs.
``Sourcing recycled materials for consumer products instead of using virgin resources is a great way to support natural resource conservation and reduce dependence on our earth's oil and natural gas,'' company founder and President Eric Hudson said in a news release.
Recycline sells its products through natural food stores such as Trader Joe's, Whole Foods and Wild Oats, and numerous supermarkets.
