This means we have purchased carbon credits to compensate for the unavoidable green house gas emissions created through the production, transportation and disposal of our products. Carbon credits fund renewable energy or tree planting projects that reduce of remove greenhouse gas emsissions from being relased into the atmosphere. We fund The Wulabo Wind Power Project in China, through The Carbon Reduction Institute.

If you've ever tried to make an eco-friendly choice when it comes to packaging materials, you'll know it can be a confusing landscape to navigate. With various claims and technical terms, it's important to be on the lookout for unscrupulous marketing. As for plastic products, the most common (misleading) claim is plastics labelled as ‘degradable’, ‘biodegradable’ or even ‘landfill degradable’. Unlike bioplastics which are produced from renewable resources, these 'degradable plastics' are just conventional plastics derived from fossil resources with an additive that the manufacturers claim will render the product biodegradable under specific conditions.

Packaging is more than just a way to store, transport and present food, its an opportunity to promote your business, too.

A bioplastic is a substance made from organic biomass sources, unlike conventional plastics, which are made from fossil resources (oil and gas), bioplastics are made from a number of renewable resources such as plant oils, cellulose, starches, sugars, carbohydrates, bacteria and algae. The production of almost all bioplastics results in less CO2 than that of conventional plastics.
This bioplastic we use is also compostable meaning it can be diverted from landfill at the end of its life, returning nutrients back into the soil.
