Eco-consciousness grows in fertile minds

Even these days, many people think “it’s hard” to become eco-conscious. It isn't hard. It’s just a matter of taking a few intelligent decisions like migrating from plastic to compostable. The Emerald® Eco™ compostable food boxes, made out of 100% bamboo and sugarcane pulp, are resistant to 100º C water and 95º C oil. A strong alternative to the damage caused by foam food boxes.

No petroleum involved

The Emerald® Eco™ food/soup containers are made out of kraft paper from renewable resources. They’re PLA plant-based lining (no petroleum involved) and 100% compostable in industrial and commercial facilities. A good choice for you to go green today!

Both public and private sectors are demanding for eco-friendly alternatives to single-use plastic products, so Emerald® Eco™ offers a new line of 100% compostable CPLA cutlery. PLA (polylactic acid) is a certified compostable and biodegradable biopolymer made out of sugarcane, corn or wheat. CPLA (crystallized polylactic acid) is a modified PLA resin with nicer appearance, better strength and improved heat-resistance.

No need to choose between going green or keeping up the endurance of your products for food service... now you have the high-resistant Emerald® Eco™ cutlery.

Green mornings

And if you've decided to be 'the greenest of all' please don’t forget to start your day with the Emerald® Eco™ Coffee Stirrers. Made out of high-quality burr-free birch, this round-edged stir stick is perfect for mixing and blending hot drinks. It offers a natural colour and smooth touch while not shredding or splintering. “It’s not easy being green”, Kermit the Frog sings, but when it’s done correctly, going green can rocket the reputation of your company and your personal image.

Going green is not a luxury

Hundreds of millions of plastic cups and straws are daily used with a 200-year degrading lifespan.

The Emerald® Eco™ Paper Cups for cold and hot liquids and the Emerald® Eco™ Paper Straws are the answer to single-use plastic waste since they’re manufactured using eco-friendly high-grade kraft paper. Our paper cups and straws are safe for humans and animals alike and won’t overstay once enjoyed by consumers.

The perfect alternative for a new race of eco-conscious businesses, families, guests and kids.

Planting green policies

There’s a growing number of countries prohibiting single-use plastic bags or are imposing taxes on single-use plastic and/or paper bags. Until our own countries catch up though it’s up to each individual to make a choice for 100% degradable bags. It’s not always possible to have on hand a reusable bag but you can ask the store attendants for the Emerald® Eco™ 100% degradable single-use t-shirt bags made out of EPI’s TDPA® (Totally Degradable Plastic Additives).

The Emerald® Eco™ philosophy is simple: Let’s save the planet now! (or we're going to face the consequences tomorrow)... But we can’t save our planet alone. Emerald® needs you as an eco-conscious consumer. Your support will allow us to continue growing into an eco-industry leader and to keep on pursuing the dream of saving the planet by providing the very best nature-friendly alternatives for institutional supplies, food service supplies, catering and home.
