About our Products

The Need to Tread Lightly

According to the EPA, over 26 million tons of petroleum-based plastic ends up in U.S. landfills alone each year. With human activity testing the limits of our planet’s bio-capacity, we need to find better ways to tread lightly. Choosing eco-friendly products is one way to aid our ailing environment, so we created World Centric® to provide you with plant based, sustainably made products that are designed to break down and be returned to the soil through composting.

  • They are made from annually renewable plants like bamboo and sugarcane bagasse
  • They break down in a commercial composting facility

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Compost

The Checklist

Since our mission is to reduce waste in people’s everyday lives, we encourage you to think hard before buying any single-use disposable products, even compostable ones, and always "reduce, reuse & recycle." When choosing any product, first consider:

  • Reduce: Can you reduce the amount that you buy?
  • Reuse: Is the product something you can reuse again and again?
  • Recycle: Can the product be recycled after use?
  • Compost: Can the product be composted and added to healthy soil (in an industrial or home composter)?
