HOW TO GET STARTED

Ice cube trays are one of those small plastic items we don't think about much. They invariably have a limited lifespan. Because you have to twist them to expel the ice, the twisting streets invariable result in stress fractures that limit the tray's lifespan. Once the tray is "consumed" it's thrown away and a new one is purchased. It's just extended life single use. These small objects all add up and having a more sustainable option is always going to be the better option.

EMBRACE

  1. Will not leach microplastics or injurious substances into water
  2. Has a substantially longer service lifespan than plastic alternatives
  3. Easier to extract ice from these trays than from conventional plastic twist-motion trays
  4. Are infinitely recyclable and won't clog up our landfills and waterways

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

  1. Included plastic bodies in close and constant contact with water which likely results in leaching despite cold temperatures
  2. Has a finite lifespan of typically 2 years after constant twisting motion leads to stress cracks
  3. Will inevitably end up in landfills or our waterways at end-of-life
