Compostables come from plants and reduce waste going into landfills. They biodegrade in a commercial composting system and produce nutrient-rich soil in 2-6 months.

Our products require less energy to produce than petroleum-based products and reduce greenhouse emissions, lessening the impact of global warming.

Less Pollution

The production of bamboo pulp for plates emits only 65% of the CO2 pollution that is emitted in the production of expanded polystyrene resin for foam plates.

Our commitment to offsetting our carbon

We annually calculate the carbon footprint of our manufacturing, shipping to the USA, warehousing, office operations (including business travel and commuting), and shipping to customers. We use this information to determine the allocation of our annual giving required to offset our carbon emissions. We fund grassroots environmental projects that not only allow us to offset our carbon emissions, but also enable organizations to help those most affected by climate change with long-lasting solutions.
