Finding viable alternatives to petroleum-based plastics is essential to fighting climate impact. In the last few years, we’ve seen significant advancements in materials engineering, but one of the most exciting to date is AirCarbon.
When we talk about renewable resources, we’re really talking about sustainability. Renewable resources can be described as anything that renews itself faster than it can be depleted.
Whether referring to raw materials or energy, a renewable source is always better. Creating from a renewable source means we will never run out, harm, or deplete critical habitats that support life on Earth.
Green, renewable, sustainable, ethical practices are fast becoming a standard in most consumer and B2B business models—and that’s a good thing. We only have one planet (at the moment), and it’s up to us to do whatever it takes to keep it healthy; for us, our children, and the other humans, plants, and animals that call it home.
Gluten allergies, sensitivities, and celiac disease are prevalent today. As a result, many people tend to avoid foods with gluten to support their healthy lifestyle. While gluten does not adversely affect everybody, many find it to slow their metabolism or cause intestinal disruption, and eliminating it from their diet helps them feel better.
Living sustainably means making conscious choices about the products we use in our daily lives and businesses. In the food service industry, disposable takeout cups and lids are a staple, but it’s vital to choose a disposable cup that minimizes environmental impact.
Greenprint is 100% committed to a circular, sustainable economy free from plastic waste. It’s a tall order, but we’re doing our part through education, innovation, and advocacy to support the foodservice industry in its transition from single-use plastics.
Biodegradable and compostable products are becoming the perfect choice for anyone who wants to make more sustainable purchasing choices. But it is imperative to understand the differences in products ranging from compostable food containers and packaging materials to consumer items like makeup, toothbrushes, and apparel, knowing a product’s biodegradability allows us to be conscious of the environmental impact of our purchases without sacrificing convenience.
Living sustainably is a many-faceted practice that extends to everything, from the food we eat to the clothes we wear and how we live our lives from day to day. That being said, our shopping choices have a massive impact on the planet.
As our environment continues to suffer from plastic pollution and a decrease in renewable resources, people are looking for ways to reduce our reliance on petroleum products, like plastics and other non-renewable materials.
