Take a moment to review the Eco-profiles we've added to the About Compostables section of our web site! World Centric compostable products require less energy to manufacture vs. petroleum plastics and foam. Our products also generate fewer greenhouse gas emissions and typically require less water vs. petroleum plastics and foam!

In our Compostable Materials Overview, we dig a little deeper into the benefits and limitations of using wheat straw molded fiber, corn-based compostable plastic and sustainably harvested paper. Different compostable materials offer different combinations of benefits and limitations.

We know compostable products are part of the journey to acheiving foodservice and take-out sustainability. Keep yourself informed so you can make the best environmental purchasing decisions!
