Sustainability


We have a plastic problem

Our use of plastic disposables is wreaking havoc on our eco-system, polluting our water, killing wildlife and affecting our food supply. Recycling isn’t effective enough (app 5% is actually recycled), and an estimate 22 million tons of plastic enters the oceans every year.  It is estimated that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean.  Did you know that in the U.S., we throw away more than 60 million coffee cups and lids in the landfill every day?  

Plastic is more expensive than it seems


It may seem cheap, but there are hidden costs - toxicity to our health and to our planet.  Even though we sell compostables, we would suggest you not use disposables whenever possible.  But when you do, using products made from plants instead of petroleum and then composting those products, is a far better solution.  And far cheaper in the long run.  By shifting our behavior just a little bit, we can have a much lighter footprint and leave a better world for those who follow.  If you are involved with a business, a university or distributor, show your customers you care.

We don’t just claim to be sustainable. It’s part of our ethos. We are partnering with organizations that are on a similar mission, too.  If you are involved in an organization that shares this mission, or are passionate about helping to change the world we live in, please get in touch - we'd love to hear from you.
