The Goals Database
Bio-based / Renewable Materials
We provide excellent quality while using renewable, plant-based resources and post-consumer recycled materials.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Our conscious manufacturing practices and strategically-located facilities help reduce our carbon footprint. When our Kalamazoo, Michigan, facility opened in 2010, it was honored with the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Silver certification.
Design For Recovery
Greenware products are certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) for compostability. Greenware PLA products meet international standard ASTM 6400 for compostability and Greenware Fiber products meet international standard ASTM 6868 for compostability. Greenware products are compostable in actively managed municipal or industrial facilities, which may not be available in your area. Recent data suggests that facilities that recycle PET cups and containers are available to a substantial majority of U.S. consumers.
