Tableware specialist Revol has pledged to assist caterers that are playing a part in conserving the planet’s natural resources by launching a “revolutionary” collection made from recycled ceramic.
Aimed at eco-minded hospitality operations, No.W is created from ‘Recyclay’, comprising mineral matter from waste clay and enamels.
The process sees around 80 tonnes of Revol’s industrial waste water go back into the production process, resulting in a saving of 80 tonnes of primary materials such as kaolin, feldspath, clay and silica. The company says it boasts the same technical properties as its other ceramics.
In a bid to reduce the carbon footprint further, it is also the first Revol collection to be stocked in the UK, limiting the number of deliveries from its primary production unit in the south of France.
The handmade range consist of dinner plate, deep plate, rectangular plate, bowl, cups and glass flacon and comes in three finishes – matt non-glazed, arctic white and indigo blue.
Revol UK and Ireland representative, Ross Gibson, said: “Consumers are thinking more and more about their impact on the environment and when it comes to eating out. This now goes much further than the extent of a restaurant’s food waste or single-use plastic.
“According to the latest research, over 90% of adults say large restaurant chains and caterers have a responsibility to do all they can to help our environment and they want to see sustainable practices and products across the board, right down to the plates they are eating from.”
