The SUBWAY® restaurant chain, which has made a commitment to make its restaurants and operations even more environmentally responsible, is now using catering trays that are made from 95 percent post-consumer recycled PET.
The brand estimates that the move will keep about 1.8 million pounds of plastic materials from going directly into the waste stream annually. Each tray and lid is made from about 19, 20-ounce recycled plastic soda or water bottles and can be recycled where commercial facilities exist. The new catering trays are used in almost 29,000 SUBWAY® restaurants in the United States and Canada.
“We have made a commitment to look at every facet of our day-to-day operations in order to make our restaurants more environmentally responsible,” said Elizabeth Stewart, Marketing Director, who also oversees the brand’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives. “With every step we take towards sustainability, such as with the improvements we’ve made to catering trays this year, and those that we made to salad bowls and lids last year, we are closer to our end goal of being able to show a significant difference in the Subway brand’s overall footprint. The catering trays and salad bowls alone will keep more than 4 million pounds of plastic from going directly into the landfills each year, and we are proud to roll these out just in time for Earth Day. While we are proud of the steps we have taken so far, we recognize there is more to be done and are committed to increasing our green efforts.”
Like the salad bowls and lids that were introduced in 2012, the catering trays and lids were created by Pactiv of Lake Forest, Illinois. Pactiv works with a state of the art facility that cleans and recycles PET soda and water bottles, creating the materials used in the new trays. The SUBWAY® chain is looking at additional pieces of plastic packaging that can utilize these recycled materials. The brand estimates that the salad bowls and lids, which are made from two-and-a-half recycled plastic soda and water bottles, are keeping about 2.62 million pounds of plastic from the waste stream annually.
The new catering trays display the sandwiches in a very unique way, showing off the fresh ingredients and allowing guests to take the sandwich they want without having to touch the other sandwiches to determine the ingredients in each.
“Along with creating a better display of sandwiches, the new catering trays were designed so they can be easily stored and transported, as they now feature handles on the sides of the platters and a structure allowing trays to be stacked,” said Michael Fox, the Packaging Technologist for the brand. “The lids for the new platters were designed based on consumer and franchisee feedback; they are designed to snap on very easily and securely – and to be easily removed as well. We even incorporated a space for sauces and napkins so that everything comes in one package.”

When we arrived we were surprised to see so many friends and clients.

Outside they had a food truck Feed your face, good food by the way,and they also had live music, we saw entire families celebrate, sing and dance , kids playing, a true celebration. The idea of a brewery, that also has a very busy bar is great! The people that serve are very welcoming including the two owners that will give you a tour and tell you the story and the particulars on their products. We learned about the way the beer is made and we understand why it is so good, and the best of all not pasteurized and fully organic green beer!

Montverde Grad Oumar Diakhite Joins Pro-Team Lions For 2013
U23s standout to retain amateur status while gaining experience with pro team
Orlando, Fla.—Orlando City SC announced Friday that Defender Oumar Diakhite will join the Lions for the 2013 season under a USL Amateur Player agreement. The Orlando City U23s standout has been training and playing for the pro squad throughout the 2013 preseason and will earn an opportunity to gain more experience by spending minutes with the pro team while also retaining his eligibility for the U23s.
“It’s a dream come true and I’m very happy to be a part of the team,” said Diakhite. “It’s my first contract, so I think this’ll help me in many ways in my development. The U23s and Montverde prepared me, and I’m excited for the opportunity.”
Diakhite, a native of Dakar, Senegal, was a key piece on the Orlando backline during the 2012 PDL season. The defender played 15 out of a possible 16 matches for the U23s, totaling 1,350 minutes played in 2012 – good for second best on the squad. Along with his defensive prowess, Diakhite scored four goals in the team’s run toward obtaining the Southern Conference Championship. He was named to the 2012 PDL All-Southern Conference team for his efforts, catching the eye of Orlando Head Coach Adrian Heath in the process.
“Oumar is just 19 years old and has bags of potential,” Heath said. “He’s big, strong and athletic and has all the tools to become a great player. We are giving him that opportunity to grow.”
The defender has played in multiple matches throughout the 2013 preseason, including starts against the Tampa Bay Rowdies in the first leg of the I-4 Derby on March 9 and in Orlando’s 7-0 win over Stetson University in the club’s collegiate friendly series.
Diakhite attended high school powerhouse Montverde Academy under Head Coach Mike Potermpa in 2011-12 where he was part of the National Championship team. He was named to the 2012 Berkeley Prep Invitational All-Tournament Team and was a Montverde Academy Soccer Tournament First Team All Tournament selection.
Coming out of Montverde, the Senegal native was named to the Orlando Sentinel All-Central Florida squad. Diakhite will be with the team as they kick off the 2013 USL PRO regular season on the road Sunday against expansion franchise Phoenix FC in Tempe, Ariz. Kickoff is set for 10:30 p.m. EST.
