|BPI Certified = Compostable|
The major strides in packaging choices are the result of industry leaders embracing product innovation and staying ahead of the demand curve. Along with the largest packaging companies, a new leadership is emerging from smaller companies filling the compostable packaging niche. Asean, the holding company for StalkMarket, Planet+ and Jaya products, is one of the smaller companies leading the innovation charge as a recognized industry leader.

Prior to initiating zero waste efforts, the Portland stadium filled two 40 yard compactors every 1 to 1.5 event days for landfill destination. With strong recycling and organics collection systems in place, the stadium now fills ONE 40 yard compactor every 4.5 to 5 game days. The zero waste practices saved the stadium significant dollars by eliminating a good portion of their landfill hauling and tipping charges.
Industry leaders working closely with communities and operators is essential to develop the emerging sustainable paradigm. It is an honor to include Buzz as an active Ei Sponsor and SFCI Team Member.
