Why Better Earth Custom Branding?

Here’s what customized packaging can do for you:

Pique interest in and out of the restaurant. 

Imagine this—your regulars can now visibly rep their favorite spot with pride at their next work lunch or takeout dinner. 

Retain and grow your customer base through sustainable packaging.

Over half of today’s US consumers are extremely or very concerned about the environmental impact of packaging, and consumers can now filter restaurants based on whether or not they have sustainable packaging on today’s food delivery apps.

(Feber, GranskogLingqvuistNordigarden: McKinsey, 2020.)

Low lift and super easy for you.

Did you know that simply plating your food in sustainable to-go packaging can increase perceived food quality and experience with customers? A recent study found exactly that!

(Morrison: Food Navigator, 2016.)

      End of Life Labeling

      Why we do not recommend “recyclable” language on our compostable products​

      We are working with recyclers to test the recyclability of our products, but since food residue on packaging negates a products’ recyclability, we require adding the Commercially Compostable labeling to our printed products to match modern rigorous composting labeling standards for responsible End-of-Life disposal. With the above in mind, we strongly discourage incorporating the label “recyclable” to avoid any potential risk to your brand from the local recycler or customers being felt misled.

      Certifications
      Our fiber products meet ASTM D6400 standards for commercial compostability. ​

      Better Earth is a great partner to work with. The Creative Team’s branding exercises they had us walk through helped us to identify the values and image that our company wants to portray. They were able to adjust timelines to meet our brand identity and design needs, and the quality of the work was top notch. Thank you!

      Custom Branding Checklist

      Ready to Custom Brand with us?

      Better Earth really goes above and beyond. Their complementary in-house custom print design services make the ordering process super easy! No one else offers design services like Better Earth where they work with customers on artwork and provide virtual samples for presentation and artwork approval. That alone helps us seal the deal much faster because most customers don’t have design resources readily available. We really love working with Better Earth because of this.
