Plant-based fiber vs. Plastic

Did you know plastic products are harmful to you?

Plant-based fiber is compostable recyclable, biodegradable, and renewable.

Our Footprint Barrier Technology™ eliminates the need for plastic liners. Our barrier technologies protect against oil, water, and oxygen.

Plant-based fiber is actually microwave and oven safe.

Cutting-edge engineering creates customer convenience.

Plastic bowls contain toxic chemicals that leech into your food.

Scientific medical studies report significant health hazards like endocrine system disorders and even death. Plastic contains Phthalates, which are causing a human health crisis.

The truth is, only 9% of plastic is recycled

Plastic ends up in landfills and oceans, and lasts for over 100 years.
