We strive to minimize packaging, petroleum based materials and energy use across the supply chain.
EarthChoice products contain an average of 50% less plastic polymers than standard PP containers, thus reducing plastic usage. In addition, they are recyclable in the few communities that have appropriate recycling programs.
Less Energy! Because over 85% of EarthChoice products are produced in the United States, they consume less energy to transport to customer facilities than similar products imported from China.
Made from Recycled Content. We are committed to using post-consumer recycled materials, where available to produce new products.
Many EarthChoice products are made with recycled RPET that is produced from previously used post-consumer plastic products. EarthChoice uses a minimum of 25% recycled PET content in its RPET packaging. This product is recyclable in the few communities that have appropriate recycling programs.
We are actively engaged in projects to increase the recycling of all foodservice packaging into new manufactured products.
EarthChoice products are recyclable in the (few) communities that have appropriate recycling facilities.
We utilize renewable and compostable resources.
Many EarthChoice products are made of PLA, a natural plastic material made from 100% annually renewable corn. EarthChoice PLA products are ASTM D 6400 certified and compostable in commercial facilities only, which may not exist in all areas. PLA is not suited for home composting.
