Products featured include Planetgards Compostable Gloves and Bamboo Expendables

With the rise in popularity of plant-based diets, there have been products specially made for the food service industry which are mindful of how product manufacturing plays a role in the plant-based movement as well. As the world becomes increasingly conscious of its impact on the environment, there is a rise in demand for sustainable products such as those derived from Bamboo and those which are Compostable. Bamboo products are considered sustainable as it takes much less time to replant and harvest bamboo compared to wood. Bamboo can be harvested in as little as one growing season whereas some hardwoods can take up to 100 years to reach maximum height.*  Restaurants can help the environment by switching to products which come from renewable and sustainable sources such as Handgards’ Bamboo Knot and Paddle Picks, Bamboo Skewers, Toothpicks, Parasol Picks, as well as our domestically produced Compostable Gloves .

Sustainability trends in the food service industry are growing for good reason. We all want to do our part to protect our environment, and operators want to be an ally towards that greater goal too. Another way to also do good for the planet while servicing customers is by the use of Compostable foodservice products.

Composting is one of the most important parts of sustainability, and compostable products are a great way to ensure you’re doing sustainability right. Handgards Planetgards Gloves have been manufactured to contribute to reducing our environmental impact. They are created with 100% compostable materials, which means they’ll biodegrade back into nature after being disposed of in an industrial composting facility after their use. These products are designed for total biodegradation, so customers will never have to worry about having contributed to the further filling up of landfills.

If you’re looking for ways to reduce your impact on the environment while still serving delicious food and drinks, look no further than Handgards Planetgards Gloves and Handgards Bamboo Expendables!
