    A NEW Eco-Friendly Product Line - Introducing... CONSERVEWARE!

    As a response to the food service industry’s ever growing demand for compostable products, Fineline Settings introduces the Conserveware collection! Conserveware is a natural molded fiber material made from sugarcane pulp called bagasse.

    What makes our introduction truly unique is the innovation we are adding to the Conserveware line. Fineline has introduced square, oval and rectangle bowls, as well as the traditional round plates and hinge containers that are most commonly used. Not only have we created new shapes and sizes, but most products can be equipped with clear recyclable PETE lids. The ability for Fineline to add innovation to this material is what separates us from the crowd. Fineline will continue to create new designs and shapes in the bagasse material that will help any operator create the perfect take-out vehicle for their business.

    The Conserveware line if the perfect compliment to Fineline’s product offering. With the addition of bagasse products, Fineline has created a full comprehensive catering product selection in the industry. Fineline now produces products in every available food service material to allow you to create the perfect packaging solution. We hope you will allow Fineline Settings to be your one stop packaging solution provider from your initial champagne toast to your take home family meal.

    Recycling With A Purpose

    Bay Area Toy Company Uses Recycled Plastic Milk Jugs To Make Toys. 

     Green Toys Are Made In The USA From 100% Recycled Content

    It’s not very often you hear of a true recycling success story but Green Toys in Northern California is just that.  They make durable toys for children.  Green toys is what every environmentally conscious innovative company should strive to be – Profitable.  It’s not just the profit that matters to them though.  The entire ethos of the company is based on doing great things.  From the design of the toy and the development of the child to "made and packaged in the USA" green toys is doing it right.  So when you throw that plastic milk jug in the blue bin have confidence that it is going to a recycling center and beginning a journey of reformation into something else.  There is a lot of data on plastic and it’s important to know and acknowledge where you can buy “Made In The USA” from Recycled Content. 

    Recycling containers is important.  The average American produces more than 4 pounds of waste per day and a quick google search will yield you the data that more than 1.5 pounds of that waste is recycled or composted.  While those numbers on average are OK there are 2 simple steps corporate buyers and business operators can take to make them better. 

    1. Use food containers with recycled content.
    2. Use food containers that are dishwasher safe and can be reused by consumers again.

    Recycled / Recyclable Catering Supplies

    Reform bowls are made with up to 99% recycled content in the USA

    Another great recycling success story is the very company I work for – Fineline Settings.  Fineline Settings manufactures recyclable catering bowls and trays using recycled content.  The line is called ReForm and we like to think of it as having a “reforming effect” on the catering and food service industry.  ReForm boasts the “Made in the USA” label but there’s something much better and much more profound about this food packaging system – It’s reusable by your consumers. 

    Reform’s durability and useful life will far exceed the food that comes in it.  Its design and sturdy construction not only provides sleek, functional, and table ready convenience it also provides a constant reminder of your great food which will increase reorder rates. Its an investment in your catering and food service business that will continue to work for you long after the food is enjoyed.   And the best part is when the customer is done using it (hopefully again and again) it's recyclable again. It will begin a new journey to be reformed into something else.  See what we did there?

    Need some advice or great food service options that work for your business?  Please feel free to send us a message and we’ll reach out.
