Packaging is wasteful… it is an unfortunate truth. However, there are many ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle — and we strive to package our food with minimal landfill impact.
We use only 100% recyclable cardboard for our boxes and containers and strive to have over 35% post-consumer waste content.
Our bowl rocks!!! It starts off as a natural agricultural byproduct (pulp that remains from crushed wheat stalks) and then it is created with a self-contained washing and biopulping process that minimizes ecological impact from field to factory (very little water, zero pollution process, contains no ﬁllers, chemical & bleach free). That is all super cool, but here is the best part: It is home compostable – which means it will actually turn into dirt! (Check out the photos below)
For those of you who are Gluten-Free, a “wheat stalk” might sound pretty scary for a Gluten-Free product. No worries. Because only the hull and grass stalks are used, there is no actual gluten in the bowl. Of course, just to make sure, we test all our finished products for the presence of gluten via a quantitative gluten test which must achieve results less than 20 parts per million (this is the FDA standard).
If you are lucky, you might live in one of the US cities that offers curbside compost pickup. If you don’t, you are still in luck because it is easy to turn your compostable discards into a beautiful garden! Check out this wiki (photos & video) on how to compost and send us your ideas on how to reduce, reuse and recycle. Happy composting!
