Customer Profile Innovation in consumer sustainability

Stay Tray, an Australia-based sustainable, reusable drink tray made from 100% recycled material, sourced locally.

According to the World Bank, there are 40 million tonnes of paper waste generated globally every year. Stay Tray, an Australian start-up, is committed to reducing this waste and has created a reusable alternative to the cardboard multi-cup tray. It is made using 100% recycled material and designed to accommodate about 95% of disposable and reusable cups and bottles.
