Re-Play recycled HDPE products are manufactured, assembled, packaged and tested in the USA! In fact, we are primarily a south-eastern USA operation – all the better for reducing our carbon footprint. We know, its pretty exciting, right? Re-Play is mainly on the east coast. Our molding plant is within 150 miles of our warehouse and our packaging is just 20 miles away. The total miles Re-Play travels from recycled material to finished product is 940 miles! Most conventional plastic goods made in China travel over 12,000 miles... that's a huge savings of over 11,000 miles. We're reducing greenhouse gases and saving energy!
Our products are made from recycled HDPE, which is #2 plastic, and is BPA free, Phthalate Free, PVC free.According to the Healthy Child Healthy World website, if you are unsure about safely using plastic items, look for the recycling codes 2, 4 or 5. Recycling codes 1, 3, and 6 can leach lead, bisphenol A, phthalates, and other stuff under certain circumstances. Recycling code 7 is the Other category. Some of these plastics are safer choices, like bioplastics such as PLA, while others can leach chemicals, etc. Read your labels for more information and proper care. Like most plastics (and melamine), Re-Play is dishwasher safe and should not be used in the microwave.
Because it’s made from #2, HDPE plastic – basically that means Milk jugs! It is BPA free, Phthalate Free, PVC free choice. And its one of the easiest plastics to recycle, and it can be recycled again and again. So drink your milk, and toss that jug in the recycling bin.
