We are committed to considering the full cycle of our products. Choosing products made from renewable resources and that can be composed helps reduce the amount of waste in landfills, reduce our dependency on oil and cut greenhouse gas emissions.
GreenMark tableware not only utilises annually renewable plant fibers such as sugarcane and corn, but also reduces the general waste stream. Bagasse is in itself an agricultural waste, it is represented as 100% recycled material.
The manufacturing process of our products uses less energy and emits less pollution than petroleum based products. It also generates fewer greenhouse gases and contains no toxins.
Stackable containers are strong and durable. Leak and oil proof. Microwavable (warm up only). Refrigerator safe.
ISO 9001 and ISO 14000 certified.
The last phase and key benefit of using biodegradable products is that they are made to be fully compostable as opposed to being recycled. Our products are made to decompose in a commercial composting facility within 60-90 days. Suitable for home composting.
Complies with ASTM D6868 and EN13432 reports for compostability.
No need to separate food waste stream – GreenMark compostable tableware can be disposed together with the food scraps to compost. Commercial composting option is not widely available in Australia, however statistics for home and community composting is encouraging, particularly in Victoria where 66% households use home composting.
Reduced waste management bill – if you use composting on site you can significantly lower the amount of waste generated (food organics make 40-50% of waste stream).
Water is a precious resource, especially in Australia. Traditional reusable tableware requires washing after each use – which exhausts water, chemicals and other resources. GreenMark provides foodservice operators with an attractive one-use tableware solution which effectively eliminates the need for ware washing. Countless litres of water can now be saved with one simple step.
