Corn Cups

February 13, 2020 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

We use World Centric cups!

World Centric® compostable plastic cups and containers are made from Ingeo,™ a bio-based plastic derived from renewable plants grown in the U.S. Chemically, this material is known as PLA, or Poly Lactic Acid, which can be derived from a variety of plant-based starches.

 

World Centric has adopted many of the same practices we have!

Our Emissions

Our carbon footprint is the sum of all carbon emissions emitted into the atmosphere in the process of making our compostable goods and running our sustainable business. This includes emissions from the production of our raw materials and our manufacturing all the way to the transportation to your front door. It includes processing, inbound ocean freight transportation, outbound trucking, and warehouse operations. Our office footprint even includes the commute and travel of our staff.

Our Efforts

It is our belief that both individuals and companies can and should reduce their carbon footprint. It starts with looking at ways to reduce your own emissions, usually directly related to reducing energy consumption. We also believe in investing in renewable energy like solar and wind energy production in addition to carbon offsetting programs such as planting trees.

We are conscious of our daily operations and simple ways that any individual can reduce energy use such as limiting centralized heating and using energy efficient space heaters, and spaces with natural light.

Our Partnerships

We believe that by partnering with other grassroots organizations we can be carbon neutral and at the same time help other organization and people that are directly faced with problems of income generation and sustainable development. In our endeavors to go carbon neutral, we focused on two things: the sequestering of carbon through tree planting and supporting projects with direct benefits to communities and people.
