Because we give a Faerch…

Our pledge to sustainability is a core element of the Chop’d lifestyle. We are constantly working hard behind the scenes to review business operations to improve efficiency and reduce our impact on the environment.

That is why were so excited to introduce our partnership with Evolve by Faerch. A bowl that is made from recycled PET and is 100% recyclable.

But isn’t plastic bad for the environment?

To a degree, yes.

Previous decades saw a rise is plastic manufacturing due to consumer desire for a fast-paced lifestyle of convenience. Globally, 300 million tons of plastic are manufactured per year, half of which are designed for single use. Sole use plastics commonly discussed in the media have a detrimental effect on the environment, often being discarded incorrectly going to landfill or entering living eco-systems. It is estimated that 15% of all plastics produced are not recyclable due to their composition, and logistical factors. Of those that are recyclable, it is often the case that the quality becomes too poor, limiting the useability for future products.

Evolve by Faerch overcomes this dilemma by achieving full circularity. The bowls are made from recycled household consumer waste and can be recycled into new packaging materials without compromising on food safety and functional qualities. The green colour to the bowls is due to the formation process of using recycled materials, each bowl may differ in colour
