Be Green Packaging Products have been Certified by BPI

Santa Barbara, CA – Nov 23, 2010 – On November 9th, Be Green Packaging LLC, received independent certification from Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI), verifying that their molded pulp fiber packaging is compostable. This certification, confirms that their products meet the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) D6868 standards for compostability.

Be Green Packaging is aware of the disconnect between the compostable packaging industry, consumers, and composting facilities. The company understands the challenge consumers face in trying to distinguish true compostable products from actual waste. Be Green is therefore enthusiastic to utilize the BPI logo (pictured right) to give consumers confidence in their purchase.

This logo will provide consumers, composters, and waste haulers an easily distinguishable label to indicate that Be Green’s products are “designed to biodegrade quickly, completely and safely, when composted in well-run municipal and commercial facilities” (Biodegradable Products Institute).

Sustainable Packaging Coalition’s 2010, “Compostable Packaging, The Reality on the Ground”, reports that improved labeling is one of the most significant areas for improvement in the compostable packaging industry. Be Green believes that BPI’s compostable label is the most established and well- recognized in North America. The company hopes to be a part of the solution by improving education, label visibility, and enforcement in the compostable packaging industry. Be Green believes that this certification will help them move one step forward towards this goal.

Be Green Packaging Sponsors the 25th Annual Kathy Ireland Children’s Holiday Celebration

Santa Barbara, Calif. — December 4, 2010 – Embracing the holiday spirit, Be Green participated in the 25th Annual Kathy Ireland Children’s Holiday Celebration. Over 200 orphans from Los Angeles and Orange counties participated in the festivities at Yard House, who was the host of this year’s event. Be Green attended the event and also donated their compostable products to be used during the celebration. Other sponsors and organizers of the event included Kathy Ireland, AEFK and 911 for Kids.

The newly built Yard House restaurant, located at the Irvine Spectrum Center, opened their hearts and doors to children and volunteers, transforming the restaurant into a holiday craft workshop. Multiple stations were set up throughout the building helping kids engage their creative and active minds. Be Green’s donation helped serve the attendees’ lunch and also doubled as art supplies for the children.

During the holidays we often find ourselves caught up in the wave of consumption that overcomes our society, forgetting to acknowledge the abundance that exists in our own lives. This year’s event was a chance for those involved to share their time and resources with those who need it most: the children.

Be Green is excited to partner with Yard House restaurants, whose commitment to the environment and the local community is having a positive impact on our planet. Be Green looks forward to a prosperous year for Yard House and congratulate them for going the extra mile by hosting this year’s event and embracing sustainable business practices.
