Biodegradable Paint Tray

Paint roller trays have always been a nuisance to clean; you have to use either a lot of water or turpentine. That’s why the trays often get tossed in the trash when the job is done. The Bio Tray is made from 100 percent recycled post-consumer waste materials: wood pulp fibers and plastic. The pulp fibers make up the bulk of the tray. The plastic is laminated to it to form a water- and solvent-proof inner layer. The Bio Tray is 95 percent biodegradable and will decompose in 4 to 6 months. Just peel off the ultra-thin plastic liner with dried paint and put it with your other plastic recyclables; then drop the pulp tray in your paper recycling bin.
