ReCan is a more sustainable and recyclable way of beverage packaging.

Long description

Beverage cartons like Tetra Pak consist of up to seven layers of paper, aluminum and plastic. For recycling, the composite material must be separated by an energy-intensive process. Afterwards, the materials cannot be transformed again into a new beverage carton.

ReCan is a sustainable alternative to traditional beverage packaging. It minimises the amount of trash but still keep the advantages of beverage cartons. The system consists of a beverage bag made out of cornstarch bio plastic and a reusable jug. The bag can easily be attached to the jug, which ensures easy opening and closing, as well as ideal handling. The system allows space-saving storage. The sleek shape makes it fit into the fridge door or layed down in a small space between the groceries. 

Being made of only one material, the light weight ReCan-Bag can be easily recycled after use. Due to the low material thickness of 0.2mm, it takes only little space in the waste bin. The solid jug however is dishwasher-safe and usable for several years.
