Re-Play has set an example with its production and sale of tableware, as it only uses plastic sourced from recycled milk jugs and upholds sustainable, eco-friendly practices. In particular, the brand has focused on creating products designed for use by infants and toddlers - from cups and utensils to plates and bowls.
The History of Re-Play
Re-Play was first introduced to the market by its parent company, Re-Think It, which got its start selling all-purpose scrubbers made with plastic sourced from recycled milk jugs. Over three decades later, Re-Play followed a similar production model to create safe and high-quality products for kids. The company uses recycled HDPE plastic from milk jugs and other materials to make no-spill sippy cups and other children’s tableware. In 2018, Re-Play expanded its product line to include tableware sized and stylized for adults; the following year, the company began selling a subline of products called Re-Play ReUSAables, which are made from silicone and other materials.
Re-Play Company Mission
Re-Play’s founders created their company with a set goal in mind - to produce high quality, long-lasting and sustainable products. The company’s mission follows five core tenets, which include sustainability, affordability, functionality, durability, and safety.
Benefits of Re-Play
Re-Play’s dinnerware products are free of any BPA, BPS, PVC, lead, phthalates, and surface coatings. From an ecological standpoint, the production of tableware using recycled plastics is a simple way to reduce the amount of waste that is delivered locally or shipped overseas. In fact, most of the materials used to make Re-Play products are procured exclusively from U.S. recycling plants.
Re-Play is also committed to decreasing greenhouse gas emissions at every step of its supply chain; the company built its manufacturing facility within 150 miles of its packaging and distribution center to cut down on transportation-related emissions. Plastic goods sourced from outside the U.S. are shipped over 12,000 miles to reach American retailers, whereas Re-Play’s products only travel 940 miles.
