Genpak Generations Line Raises the Bar for Eco-Conscious Takeout Containers

Green = Green

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), there are more than 4,500 recycled-content products on the market today, and that number just keeps growing. Here at, we are happy to announce that we now carry yet another line of recycled-content products, this time from Genpak, the leader in premium quality, single use food packaging products.

I now introduce to you . . .

Genpak Generations - A first-of-its-kind line of recycled foam takeout containers and school trays, composed of 25% post-consumer recycled materials!

So what exactly does post-consumer mean? Why is it good for your restaurant, university, or catering business? And how do these green containers affect your customers?

The Benefits

Researchers have found that more than 8 out of 10 restaurant patrons surveyed in Columbus, Ohio said they would be willing to pay more to dine at "green" restaurants than non-green restaurants.

As it turns out, every little bit helps in establishing your restaurant as a "green" place to eat – even down to the take out containers you send home with your patrons.

Genpak Generations foam food containers are perfect for building your "green" image, while showing your commitment to sustainability, and environmental responsibility. Made with 25% post-consumer recycled materials, these containers are comprised of materials that were once used by consumers (such as clothing hangers) and have now been recovered or diverted from the solid waste stream. By saving these materials and turning them into something useful, Genpak is essentially expanding United States manufacturing jobs, reducing the need for landfilling and incineration, saving energy, conserving natural resources, and helping to sustain the environment for future generations.

What's more? Buying just two cases of any Generations items is the equivalent of saving 1 gallon of gas!
