It is surprising to see how many take-out containers and cups we go through at Organic Connection. But, we are working on ways to reduce our environmental impact.
The majority of the take-out containers that we use are made from vegetable-based materials and are greenhouse gas neutral in their production. Most notable are the clear 'plastic' deli containers - they're made from corn; they're compostable; and they contain no petroleum ingredients. Similarly, our cutlery is made from potato starch.
Small things. Small steps. Little efforts. One by one they can positively add up and make a difference.
