Time is Running Out for Plastics

As of December 20, 2022, Canada banned the manufacturing and importation of single-use plastics. More than half of the United States is already under some form of single-use plastics ban. And, the United Nations is working toward a restriction on plastic production within the next few years. The era of single-use plastics may be at its end, but the natural, eco-friendly solution has been here all along.

Mother Nature’s Perfect Solution

100% compostable, sustainable, and renewable solutions are growing in our backyard. Wood, bamboo, and sugarcane are excellent eco-friendly alternatives to traditional plastic-based products. Sustainable and fully biodegradable, these natural materials also require significantly less energy and processing to produce. It’s a win-win for the environment and those looking to reduce their carbon footprint.
