Because the planet is important to us.

 "Create a positive environmental change by providing high quality and affordable eco friendly products to the food industry"

Mission

Planet One

Our main source of energy comes from solar panels.

Our products are made from 100% recyclable, compostable and biodegradable paper.

Sustainability
Our green iniciative.
Commited to educate and encourage consumers on living in sustainability.

We recycle 100% of the paper and cardboard waste we process. 

Our products come form cultivated trees, grown on farms. For each tree harvested, 5 are planted.

Stop using plastics.

Why it matters?

1- Plastic Straws can’t be easily Recycled.

Straws are most commonly made from type 5 plastic, or polypropylene. Although type 5 plastic can be recycled, it isn’t accepted by most curbside recycling programs. When plastic straws aren’t recycled, they end up in landfills, or even worse, polluting our oceans.

2- Plastics do not Biodegrade, and never fully Degrade.

  

Biodegrading is when an item can be naturally broken down and digested by micro-organisms, and then naturally recycled into new organic molecules and life.

On the other hand, degrading is just the process of breaking down into smaller pieces. When plastic degrades, the bulk of the plastic will seem to disappear – However, what’s really happening is the plastic is breaking into smaller, invisible pieces that will always still be on Earth.

To make matters worse, the degrading of plastic could release chemicals that are toxic to wildlife and the environment.

3- Straws are littered very often, and harm Ocean
Wildlife.

Straws are also especially dangerous to seabirds, as they can be easily picked up and swallowed, suffocating and choking the bird. In fact, over 1 million seabirds die each year from ingesting plastic.

To make matters worse, if an animal eats too much plastic, it can starve to death. Once plastic is swallowed, it can’t be digested and it gets stuck in the stomach of the animal. Then, the animal (like a sea bird) isn’t able to eat real nutritious food, and it’ll eventually die of starvation. 

In other words, plastic can fill up the stomach of a marine animal, preventing it from eating any actual food. The animal will then slowly starve to death.

4- Straws Break Down into Microplastics.

Remember how I mentioned that plastic straws don’t biodegrade, but instead, degrade into smaller pieces? Well, those smaller pieces of broken-up plastic are known as microplastics.

Microplastics are generally classified as any piece of plastic that is less than 5 millimetres in length.

Just as with any plastic, they can harm animals when mistaken for food. In fact, microplastics could be even more harmful than normal sized plastics, as they are smaller, and can easily be transferred through the food chain. 

For example, if a small fish consumes microplastic, and then is eaten by a predator like a shark, the microplastic is transferred from the small fish to the predator, or the shark. 

5-They collect in garbage patches in the ocean.

garbage patch is the name given to a congregation or concentration of marine debris in the ocean, which is mostly made up of plastic. 

Depending on ocean currents, marine garbage collects in a variety of general regions in the ocean. For example, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is made up of many collections of garbage within the Pacific Ocean. 

When plastic straws are littered and enter the ocean, they can collect in large garbage patches. Microplastics or smaller pieces of plastic straws are also concentrated in patches by ocean currents.

Marine animals can tangled up in these large patches of plastic debris, and the large plastic patches can harm multiple animals in a region.
