Instead of white trays printed with the usual red plaid design, here were food trays that were kraft in […]

Smart restaurants add sustainability to their menus

Grocery managers: now you can add extra green to your produce aisle

It’s rather ironic that, lurking the grocery aisle of many supermarkets and grocers, is one of the most planet-unfriendly substances known to man. We’re talking, of course, about the trusty plastic bag, which is generally made from polyethylene, a fossil-based plastic. And, like many plastic bags, produce bags are often single-use — many people […]
