This weekend is the biggest football game of the year, the Superbowl.
Estimates for this year’s event suggest that 181 million viewers are expected to spend a total of $12.3 billion on food and drink. Consumers like to gather during this event and fans love to eat while watching a game. Snacks, sandwiches, pizza and chicken wings made home or picked up from local restaurants are wrapped, plated or transported in a hinged container or eaten on foam plates. Imagine the millions of plates and hingeware containers used. All of that servingware headed for trashcans and ultimately to landfills.
The Bridge-Gate biopulped line of servingware is 100% compostable. What is great about compostables is that we convert our plates to a useful product. This goes beyond being merely biodegradable. Use of compost is on the rise in cities and rural communities for parks, as well as by backyard gardeners. When consumers buy compost that contains Bridge-Gate servingware, they are participating in closing the loop on resource use. As discussed in the Disney movie, “The Lion King”, it’s one of those circle of life things.
As the saying goes, you are either part of the problem, or you are part of the solution. Use compostable servingware and become part of the solution; it is so easy and everyone wins.
