Our meat and produce trays are made from compressed Bamboo fiber and are 100% compostable and biodegradable. The Bamboo comes from the Moso (Phyllostachys edulis) variety of Bamboo and is not a food source for the Panda Bear. Widely accepted as the world’s most sustainable and renewable resource, Bamboo trays are Mother Earth’s answer to eliminating Polystyrene Foam packaging trays.

Why Bamboo Trays are Better and Healthier
True Earth Bamboo trays are the only logical choice for consumers today. They benefit the environment and human health. The more commonly used Styrofoam® trays are cheap but harmful.
Polystyrene Foam also known as Styrofoam® is extremely harmful to our environment, animal and human health. Polystyrene is lightweight and floats. When littered or dumped in landfills, it will photodegrade, breaking down into smaller and smaller pieces, but it does not turn into compost. Wind and rain lift the particles and polystyrene will eventually find its way into water sources such as our creaks, rivers, lakes and storm drains. It then makes its way to our oceans, where marine animals mistake the polystyrene as a food source.
Styrofoam is a petroleum-based product, the creation of which is energy intensive, generating vast amounts of greenhouse gases. Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) have been used in the production of Styrofoam®, resulting in air pollution and damaging planet earth’s protective ozone layer.
Extruded Polystyrene is made using Styrene, which has been shown to cause cancer in lab animals and is a possible human carcinogen and neurotoxin. Styrene can migrate from polystyrene containers into food and beverages when heated or when in contact with fatty or acidic foods. Styrene residues are now found in 100% of all samples of human fat tissue. Polystyrene also contains Benzene and is a known carcinogen to humans and animals. Both Benzene and Styrene have been linked to leukemia and Parkinson’s disease.
True Earth Bamboo trays are significantly better for the environment and healthier for you and your family. Bamboo trays are 100% natural fiber and compostable. They will help keep food fresh, decompose when composted and pose no health risks to people or animals.
The cost of Bamboo trays is only 10 cents more per tray. This amounts to an extra dime for your pound of hamburger or your package of strawberries. A cost clearly worth the benefits. While the cost per Bamboo tray up front is a small amount more, the cost to the world in the long term, to keep using Styrofoam® is far higher.
