EarthCycle is a Canadian company that produces eco-friendly food trays from palm fibre. Palm fibre is the waste of the palm fruit, which is used to make vegetable oil. Unfortunately, with production increasing by 160% in the past 40 years, farming of palm fruit has been associated with the endangerment of different species. Earthcycle has confirmed however, that it’s sources have been certified as sustainable by the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).
Shannon Boase, president of EarthCycle, wanted to ensure the marketplace, that the company was doing everything possible to ensure that its products were fully green.
“Our partners and end consumers expect Earthcycle to provide, whenever possible, the data to confirm its practices are firmly aligned with sustainability. We are proud to have received qualified documentation stating our environmentally-friendly packaging is made from ethically sourced fibre.”
