I have an exciting update regarding our endeavour to make the most
sustainable products available! Right now, we are on the edge of a fantastic new product
line in our compostable material stream that will replace all compostable products we
currently make. With our dedicated team, many years of research and development, as well as
the environmental stewardship that we are so committed to, a lot of progress is underway!
As we continuously develop this line, there are many upgrades we’re
making along the way, especially as the demand to make “e-commerce ready” packaging grows
alongside the rapidly expanding e-commerce market.
However, with this progress comes a need to temporarily halt
commercial production on our line of home compostable pouches. Transitioning our home
compostable films to adapt to this new e-commerce workflow has certainly been a challenge.
During this pause, we will be busy altering some of the materials and processes we use in
making the compostable packaging for the benefit of a better, stronger (and therefore even
more sustainable), product.
To say that Rootree is committed to sustainability would be an
under-statement, just as you wouldn’t say a tree is committed to producing oxygen - as it’s
a force of nature, it just does it. In the same fashion, sustainability is deeply ingrained
into Rootree’s DNA, and one doesn’t come without the other.
Stay tuned while we refresh, reinvent, and complete the Phase 3
development of our compostable product line. You’ll be back to using a better, stronger
version of the compostable packaging you love in the new year, we promise! In the meantime,
we thank you for your continued support and hope we can continue to serve all of your
packaging needs with our conventional
and recyclable product streams.
