Repurpose Provides The Evolution of Single-Use Products
Affordable, Durable, Sustainable Coffee Cups, Cold Cups, Utensils, Plates and Bowls
Repurpose® (www.repurposecompostables.com), creators of the leading line of premium, eco-friendly tableware is continuing to expand distribution into larger consumer markets and retail stores in order to meet consumer demand. Numerous surveys show more than 66 percent of consumers want companies that are sustainable or support the environment. With the evolution of new insulated hot cup, heat-resistant cutlery, heavy-duty plates and bowls, and non-toxic cold cups, Repurpose products are an affordable innovation in bio-plastic design and sustainable technology.
"These high quality products finally offer the greenest possible alternative to styrofoam and plastic cups and petroleum-based utensils for those who need a single use, disposable option," says CEO Lauren Gropper, "And we are so thrilled to be providing a single-use option that the public wants. We aim to serve eco-conscious consumers by offering superior plant-based products at a better than competitive price."
Traditional plastic cups and cutlery are made from petroleum, but Repurpose's products are made from plants which means they are non-toxic, BPA free and can be composted in 90 days in an industrial composter. Repurpose offers a healthier alternative to single use plastics and helps consumers easily incorporate eco-friendly, sustainable products into their lives.
"Studies show that 78 percent of Americans will buy green products if they can find them on the shelf, and they don't have to make any concessions on quality or price. Repurpose is helping make that a reality in reaching out to nationwide chain stores to carry sustainable alternatives for its customers," said Corey Scholibo, CMO and co-founder of Repurpose. "It's getting easier and easier to make smart, healthy choices for your family and the planet."
The patented technology behind the Repurpose insulated hot cup keeps hot beverages warmer for longer, and prevents heat from escaping the cup, protecting the user and creating a more comfortable feel with only one product. More importantly the insulation means no more double cupping, no more sleeves, and comes with a plant based compostable lid. The revolutionary new cup uses 3-4 times less CO2 than a traditional cup to produce, and can be composted in 90 days. Traditional insulated cups are made by adding additional layers of paper; however, the RepurposeŅ insulated hot cup does the same with patented insulation material on a single wall cup. The high performance clear cups are BPA free, non-toxic, so they don't affect the taste of beverages like plastic cups do. The durable cutlery is heat resistant and won't bend, break, or melt, giving consumers the same performance as the plastic products they are used to.
The high performance clear cups are BPA free, non-toxic, and made from annually renewable resources using IngeoT resin. The durable cutlery is heat resistant and won't bend, break, or melt, giving consumers the same performance as the plastic products they are used to. The heavy duty plates and bowls are cuty and leak so consumers can load up on cold, wet ice cream or microwave warming soup without any bending or warping. Perfect for parties, picnics, sporting events or anywhere disposables are needed; consumers now have the convenience of single use product while still lessening their impact on the environment. Repurpose products will compost in 90 days in a commercial composter offering the most efficient end of life option for disposables.

About Repurpose Compostables
Repurpose was founded in 2010 by a group eco-entrepreneurs driven to positively impact the environment by changing everyday behavior. Realizing the devastating impact single use plastics were having on the environment and the fact that no alternatives existed for the consumer, Repurpose decided to manufacture their own. Repurpose, a line of sustainable tableware that looks out for the health of you, your family, and the planet, was born. Our mission is to reduce the amount of plastics in our environment and offer guilt-free, renewable alternatives. By purchasing from repurpose consumers support a women owned, sustainable company that is changing the world one cup, fork and plate at a time.
