Teaming Up For Sustainability

RICHMOND, CA | Biomass Packaging has teamed up with Natural Value to make its compostable, sustainable products available directly to consumers. BioMass Packaging represents more than a dozen wholesale product lines and more than 400 items. Natural Value is a company dedicated to making natural and organic foods and environmentally friendly nonfood products more affordable and available for consumers.

The new retail offerings include SpudWare compostable spoons, forks, and knives made from vegetable starch, said to hold their shape even in high heat. Also available are Bridgegate bowls and plates, completely compostable and made from wheat straw using a patented zero pollution pulping process; cups made of vegetable plastic from feed corn grown in the US, providing consumers with sustainable alternatives to petroleum plastics; and cutlery made from 100% natural birch wood with no chemicals, toxins, or coatings.

To produce these products for the retail market, Levine forged a partnership with the Richmond-based California Autism Foundation for the packaging and labeling fulfillment.
