From the entire Better Earth team, we wish you a happy, happy Earth Day. It may come as no surprise that it’s a major holiday for us every year. To us, it’s so much more than simply saying thanks to this beautiful planet we call home. Rather, it’s a milestone for us to celebrate the hard work we’re doing every day to make sustainability accessible and contribute to a cleaner, safer, regenerative, truly Better Earth.  

And this year, as the dust of this global pandemic settles and we begin to see what a new normal could look like, Earth Day is taking on a new meaning altogetherespecially around packaging.  

It’s clear that foodservice packaging is at a critical juncture. So much is on the line and we all have a role to play.  

  • In fact, the world’s food system is estimated to be responsible for one-quarter of the greenhouse gases humans generate each year.  

“Closing the loop” through compostable packaging or, whenever possible, reusables, will be critical for ensuring the foodservice industry can step up to these big environmental challenges we face.  

Wanna learn more? We invite you to check out the quick video below that breaks down the closed loop system, why we need it, and the powerful role compostables can play 

 

We’re on a mission to help the foodservice industry close the loop. Join us by sharing this video on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or by simply sharing this link with your network: https://youtu.be/zjk-xZZ_1AQ
