World Centric: compostable corn containers and sugar bowls

Hundreds of thousands of tons of paper plates, styrofoam cups and plastic bowls are thrown away every year.

Besides contributing to our diminishing landfill space, these disposables rely on non-renewable resources like petroleum (plastic and styrofoam) and “virgin” wood fiber (paper). While non-disposable products are the best choice, there is a 2nd best: biocompostables.

In this video, Aseem Das from World Centric shows us their biodegradable/compostable cups, bowls, bags and take-out containers made from bagasse (sugarcane fiber) and bioplastics (corn, potato). He also takes us out to the company compost bin to check in on how it all breaks down.
