Compostable Paper Food Packaging

Eco-pliant has been passionate about reliable compostable paper food packaging products since its inception, beginning with a single paper straw movement and growing into something so much more.

 

Now, Eco-pliant delivers compostable paper food packaging and restaurant supplies nationwide, while researching and developing the highest-quality product solutions to support the foodservice industry’s growth in sustainability.

Where Eco-pliant Began

compostable strawsEco-pliant started when two members of Surfrider wanted to encourage the use of paper straws in their communities. Their goal was to begin the reduction of waste that was hurting their oceans and wildlife—and they started at home.

 

It was the goal of these two to grow the sustainability movement in their own backyard, and to inspire others to solve sustainability problems in their neighborhoods as well.

 

When the desired success of implementing compostable products didn’t meet their expectations, they struck out on their own to create their own compostable food packing company; thus, Eco-pliant was born.

How Eco-pliant Has Grown

What started out as a small desire to see improvements in their local environment has created a company with a mission to provide reliable, trusted compostable food packaging to food businesses of all shapes and sizes — Eco-pliant knows what’s important — good food with great friends, without the environmental impact.

 

Now, Eco-pliant supplies eco-friendly compostable food packaging to hospitals, restaurants, bars, caterers, the film industry, and more.

We stock only the top brands for paper straws, takeout clamshells, portion cups, to-go containers, biodegradable food trays, folding boxes and more.

 

Each product is FDA approved for safe food contact and compostable. With compostable products like these, Eco-pliant is able to equip restaurants with the products and knowledge they need, one local business at a time.
