A Better Box Means No More Plastic Clamshells
Vented produce clamshell alternative
Environmentally-conscious farmers and grocery store owners view sustainability as very important and are making the effort to help the earth and satisfy like-minded consumers. But are the plastics they're putting their produce in ending up in the right place? Even in the few cities that accept the plastic clamshells in their recycling bins might be wasting their time since the label - and adhesive used to attach it to the clamshell - might not be recyclable and can then end up contaminating the plastic recycle stream it ends up in. Consequently, the packaging ends up in a landfill, a waste of product and now also a waste of time. Today there's a new alternative packaging solution for growers and retailers making the green choice to reduce their use of plastic produce packaging: Sun Sugar Farms' Sustainable Produce Container (SPC).
The SPC ships flat with no adhesives and is easily assembled before packing. There's room on top or bottom for a label or to print your message with water-soluble ink. The paper-based format makes the SPC TRULY 100% recyclable. SPCs also can be composted in a backyard compost bin - no industrial composter needed (that most cities don't have anyway) - or it can used as mulch in a garden for biodegradable weed control.
The Sustainable Produce Container is a better box for many commodities including Campari and cherry tomatoes, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, dates, figs, guava, kiwis, taramind post, and even handmade soaps. And it's closed yet easy-to-open design makes it preferred by organic-minded customers over other cardboard containers out there. To prevent your sustainability efforts from ending up in the trash try packing your produce in the Sustainable Produce Container.
