In an effort to make their restaurants more environmentally responsible, the Subway sandwich chain is now using thermoformed catering PET trays. The trays are made from 95% post-consumer recycled PET and are used in 29,000 Subway locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. As a result of using these trays, the company estimates that it will keep 1.8 million pounds of plastic materials from going directly into the waste stream every year. The switch is part of Subway’s commitment to changing their day-to-day operations in order to uphold environmental responsibility. The improvements will not end with this- while the company is proud of the various sustainable solutions they have implemented into their business, they recognize that there is more to be done and they are committed to it!
