The durability of the SureHandle 64-oz. bottle is unparalleled and meets or exceeds published criteria for e-commerce ready packaging.”
SureHandle containers are recycle code 1—collected curbside everywhere.
“The challenge to eliminate single-use corrugated in the retail channel is upon us. PET containers are an obvious answer to that challenge, but the incorporation of an ergonomic handle with improved durability and transport packaging elimination create exciting new opportunities for everyone involved,” added Duelge.
