Treat assembly: eco-friendly style

Recycled PackagingWith St. Patrick’s Day approaching and the weather getting warmer, we’re seeing green everywhere!

If you didn’t know, we package our muffins, cookies and brownies in an eco-friendly way. Here’s the breakdown:

 

 

 

 

Cello bags. These bags are made from wood cellulose fibers sourced with sustainable forestry principles. Certified biodegradable, compostable and made carbon zero.

Baking cups. These cups made from unbleached, greaseproof paper. As no chlorine is used for bleaching, no chlorine is dumped into our lakes, rivers and streams. They’re also biodegradable, compostable and microwave safe.

Shipping box. This box is made from 99% post-consumer content and is 100% recyclable.

Catering box. This box is uncoated and no chemicals are used to change its natural organic appearance. This natural paperboard uses typically 25-30% less fiber than other box materials. The fiber for these boxes comes from Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) lumber, which is collected and reforested using environmentally-friendly practices. This packaging is 100% recyclable.

Catering tissue. This 100% biodegradable and compostable Kraft tissue is unbleached, natural and grease resistant.

Shipping tissue. This recycled Kraft tissue paper is acid free and made from 100% recycled fibers.

Labels. These labels are made of 100% recycled paper (100% post-consumer waste) and a water-based 100% recyclable adhesive. The label paper is processed chlorine free and printed using soy-based ink. Both the labels and packaging are recyclable.

Natural rubber packing tape. Made from a rubber tree, a renewable resource, natural rubber is biodegradable, unlike packing tape made from polyethylene.

Even our catering receipts are printed on recycled paper.

 

There you have it. Now you know how we assemble our treats in an eco-friendly way!
