Be Green Packaging: Better Alternative to Plastic

be green packaging LLCI don’t know about you, but nothing bothers me more than styrofoam. In 2013, there’s no reason to use something so horrible for the atmosphere. And plastic, disposable packaging isn’t a much better choice. That’s why companies like Be Green Packaging are so awesome.

Be Green Packaging LLC creates alternatives to the ordinary plastic (and styrofoam) crap you find for takeout or picnics. All of their items are made from a plant fiber blend like bulrush, kenaf, wheatstraw, bamboo, rice & bagasse. The products are never from trees nor dyed – with a natural color – making them compostable, biodegradable and recyclable. Plus, plastic & styrofoam should NEVER go in the microwave or oven since there’s risk of chemical leakage into your food.

Sustainable Packaging Products.

Be Green Packaging has a variety of containers perfect for stores & takeout restaurants, as well as plates perfect for the office & home. Products include Utility Trays, Food trays, supermarket food trays, sushi trays & lids, sample cups, plates, clamshells and bowls. You’ll recognize the utility trays from your local Whole Foods and wish your neighborhood takeout joint would switch to their greener products.

Be Green Packaging LLC – Certifications

Plus, Be Green Packaging is Non-GMO Product Verified, Cradle to Cradle Certified, Biodegradable Product Institute Certified, WMU Certified Recyclable AND USDA Certified Bio based Products. Plus, they are still safe for the oven/freezer & microwave AND grease/moisture resistant.  Can you get any additional green street cred? I think not.

Another plus of supporting Be Green Packaging? They give back to the community, like Whole Planet Foundation which helps micro lending for women in economically developing countries. Other benefactors include Organic Center, Santa Barbara Community Environmental Council and Organic Soup Kitchen – among others.

As McDonough & Braungart emphasize in the Upcycle, it’s small companies like Be Green Packaging that will come up with innovative changes essential for our climate. As consumers, we just need to support the right companies that align with our beliefs.

1 thought on “Be Green Packaging: Better Alternative to Plastic

  1. Years ago, parties, picnics, and pot-luck socials always included reusable dinner wear. I remember, in the 60’s and 70’s, that everyone brought not only their own plates and forks, but also the placemats and cloth napkins into the fellowship hall at the UU church for the monthly gathering. Last year, my family had serious “green street cred” at my daughters’ nursery school’s annual fundraiser, when we arrived with all our reusable picnic ware to use instead of the disposables. Nothing against Be Green Packaging, which is great when food purveyors will not allow you to buy things in your own reusable containers, but I prefer to use reusable containers when possible. At the end of the meal, we just line the picnic basket with the small cotton table cloth, load in the dirty dishes, and head home. Fun, stylish, easy, and most definitely green.
