recyclable boxes


OK, guys, I know I’m going to be “dating” myself here, but believe it or not, I can remember the days when there was no such thing as recycling. When the garbage guys rolled up once a week, they were not concerned with separate bins – the plastic drink cups, bottles, newspapers and cupcake boxes went right in there with the banana peels, ham bones and everything else.

Happily, that’s not the case these days.

Our municipalities give us special bins and often special days when they’ll send a different truck along to take our recyclables to be turned into new packages  — easing the ever-ballooning bulge in the landfills along with our worries about the future of our Earth and our environment.

Eco Friendly Takeout

If you are fortunate enough to own your own food service business – perhaps a bakery – you’ve put careful thought into everything from your recipes to hours, pricing and what cups, napkins and cupcake boxes to use. And with all of the new restrictions popping up on use of plastics, mandatory recycling and more, sustainability has no doubt become important to you as well.

Even your patrons are environmentally conscious. They’re taking home your cakes, donuts and drinks in the hope that what they toted them there in can be recycled, too.

Cupcake Boxes with a Conscience

Here at MrTakeOutBags.com, we pride ourselves on keeping up on the latest news when it comes to sustainability.

We enhance our inventory with plant-based products, keep up on rules and regulations across the country and continue to add environmentally friendly offerings.

Just a quick visit to our site will show you that, among our thousands of packaging options – in segments ranging from cups to deli containers to carryout bags, shopping bags, utensils and a whole heck of a lot more – a large majority of them are made from post-consumer materials, and are recyclable or compostable — or both.

And that goes for our donut boxes, cake boxes, cupcake boxes and cookie boxes. No matter the color you choose, you can feel good about offering them to your customers who, like you, are concerned about the state of our environment today.

How do I know if my cupcake box can be recycled?

We make it easy for you to explore the Earth-friendliness of our takeout packaging and bakery boxes. Let me show you how:

Visit MrTakeOutBags.com and look for an item you’d like to try. There are tabs at the top of the page that will navigate you to boxes, and subcategories by type, including windowed bakery boxes, cupcake boxes, bakery boxes with no windows, kraft brown bakery boxes, white bakery boxes and more.

Once you hone in on a particular bakery box you’d like to see, click on the image. This will take you to a page giving you all the pertinent information about that particular food packaging product.

Just below the image of the bakery box, you’ll see (right above the complete description) a series of symbols with words identifying Post-Consumer, Biodegradable, Recyclable, Compostable, Green Product, Customizable and Made in USA. Here’s a screenshot to show you what I mean.

So there you have it – one more reason to check us out. Peace of mind for you, peace of mind for your customers.  When they take home your fresh donuts or that special birthday cake for little Scotty’s 8th birthday and it gets gobbled up in no time flat, it doesn’t have to go into the local landfill – it can go right into that special bin with the special symbol and find a new life one day.
