Our Team

We are truly passionate about packaging from plants because it helps to solve two of the world's most pressing problems- single-use plastic and climate change. We are able to do this using well-known processes that have been refined to work on a smaller scale and automated to be competitively priced and produced with consistent quality.

Our Story

Did you know that American consumers throw away more than 16 billion take-out containers every year, and more than 15 billion of those are styrofoam and plastic? We’ve set out to make an alternative to single-use plastic – our packaging is recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable.

Instead of using plastic, we’ve developed a way to make our food containers out of fibers from Miscanthus, an extraordinary perennial crop that sequesters carbon in the soil it grows in, reducing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Eliminating Single-Use Plastics

Growing demand for single-use plastic packaging is a global environmental problem impacting land, water, and air, resulting in:

  • Bans of single-use plastic in Canada & EU starting in 2021 
  • Bans of single-use plastics have begun in multiple US cities 
  • A large demand for sustainable alternatives

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. The Miscanthus plant we use to make our packaging sequesters carbon in the soil, offers a high yield every year for 20 years, and brings new income to farmers by growing in marginal soil that couldn’t be used for food crops.

Made In The USA

Unlike our competitors in China, our thermoformed fiber packaging is 100% made in the USA, from plant fibers grown in the USA. We manufacture our packaging within 50 miles of where it’s grown. This means our supply chain is completely traceable, our operations provide American jobs, and our pricing doesn't depend on fluctuations in tariffs or currency. And domestic operations result in a significantly lower carbon footprint than products shipped from overseas.
