Leaf of the Day, No. 89, EcoProducts

EcoProducts is a Boulder, CO based company that is the nation’s leading supplier of single-use food service products made from recycled content and materials. EcoProducts has done some great things to soften the environmental impact of our consumption. EcoProducts recycles materials as much as possible to limit the need for virgin resources. If you had to boil it down, we humans developed a bad habit somewhere along the line of using disposable plates, knives, forks, napkins, cups, etc. EcoProducts in essence, makes our bad habit less bad. Now, I’m not at all suggesting that EcoProducts is any less green for it. Obviously, reusable cups, plates and the like are the best options and I have no doubt that EcoProducts feels the same. What EcoProducts offers is the lesser of two evils, one that is an important step in weening society off of single-use products.

EcoProducts recently made news when it unveiled the world’s first recycled content cup lid. Check out EcoLid 25.
