Light weight cutlery
As of 3rd July 2021, single-use plastic items for which affordable alternatives exist – which includes plates & cutlery, – are banned from use in the European Union. Airlines and caterers are obliged to comply with this regulation regardless of the origination of the flight. If you are landing in the EU, you cannot off-load or use return flight plastics.
SOLA has the solution
An affordable, totally environmentally friendly solution that is immediately available and is both recyclable AND reusable. Your choice.
Steel is the most recycled material on the planet, incurring 50% less emissions than manufacturing from virgin ore and growth in the use of stainless steel is the highest of any material. Most importantly, it is 100% recyclable, reusable, extremely durable, safe and easy to maintain.
Armed with this knowledge Sola Netherlands has designed and engineered the world’s lightest and most durable range of stainless steel cutlery specifically intended to address the plastic single use cutlery replacement effort.
It is possible that reusable, rotable or 100% recyclable high grade stainless steel can possibly be as cost effective as the plastic alternative? The answer from Sola Netherlands is Yes. With our super-light designs, at least 60% less weight than regular stainless steel airline cutlery, the cost savings are multi-faceted and take into account energy savings, environmental costs and long-term sustainability of both the product and the environment that it is used in.
What is this ultralight cutlery?
Sola believes the only reasonable and sustainable way to replace plastic cutlery is replacing this by a stainless steel version. The advantage of using stainless steel is that it is a natural product. The total production process is cleaner versus plastics, especially due to the recycling. Stainless steel is a circular/fully recyclable product. If left in the environment, it will return back to its original natural shape, without polluting the air, water or soil. Stainless steel is a rotable product and has a more luxurious look compared to plastics.
We have developed a complete range of 4 cutlery designs that can be the solution for you. They are ultra-light weight, able to be produced quickly in mass volumes and can be used as a rotable or disposable alternative.
