SHELTON, CONN. — Since its launch of PET products in 2020, Inline Plastics has worked with an independent auditor, SCS Global Services, to certify its use of post-consumer content.
SCS confirmed that all Inline Plastics PET products are made with 10% recycled materials.
Inline said the certification was important to the company because of the trendiness of sustainability and rise of unsubstantiated claims in the food industry.
“We believe that integrity and transparency are an important part of doing business and this is why we retained SCS Global Services, to certify our post-consumer recycled material claim,” said Tom Orkisz, chairman and CEO of Inline Plastics. “By releasing all of our data for an objective and impartial analysis, customers can be confident and trust that we’re a brand who delivers on our claims.”
Inline Plastics’ Essentials and Safe-T-Fresh product lines are now included in the SCS Green Products Guide, an online directory for SCS certified green products, the company said.
“Achieving this certification means that Inline Plastics is verifiably creating products that incorporate recycled material, which reduces waste to landfills and allows consumers more product choices that are environmentally responsible,” said Nicole Munoz, vice president of environmental certification services at SCS. “SCS applauds their organization in achieving third-party certification to ensure credibility of their product claims.”
