PETALUMA, Calif., January 1, 2021 -- World Centric® has announced today that its collection of plant-based, compostable "Store & Go" storage containers are now available to consumers at Target stores nationwide and online at Target.com. Made from plant fiber, not trees, these containers have a bio-lining made from plants which makes them compostable in a commercial composting facility.* Using products made from plant fiber helps protect our fast-dwindling forests and the cultures as well as wildlife that depend on them.
The World Centric Store & Go containers offer Target customers a sustainable alternative to traditional petroleum-based plastic storage containers and are part of the retailer's continued commitment to social impact and the environment.
The World Centric Store & Go containers are microwave friendly, freezer safe and can be used for both hot foods up to 200° Fahrenheit and cold items. They are available in 20 ounce, 32 ounce, and 48 ounce sizes with matching fiber lids, and the containers are great for picnics, leftovers, and lunches on the go.
In addition to being made from rapidly growing renewable materials, the Store & Go container line uses bio-based, 100% compostable barriers as alternatives to Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and is 100% compostable, which means that all of the products will turn into soil in commercial composting facilities where available. World Centric also partners with environmental and social organizations whose programs help offset its carbon emissions. Read more here.
Since 2009 World Centric has given 25% of its profits to support projects around the world that promote social and economic development, environmental education, and waste reduction, as well as to offset carbon emissions.
