Tree Free Global’s vision is to reduce the footprint on our planet by using natural resources which are renewable, biodegradable, compostable and sustainable.
Sugarcane is an annual crop as opposed to tree plantations which can take up to 20 years to mature. We use less resources than a tree plantation and our crops are harvested and regrown saving soil erosion and habitat. Once the sugarcane juice is extracted, we use the pulp once burned (Saving Emissions) to make our bagasse products.
We consider our products impact on the environment in both manufacture and disposal. By using a waste product from an annual crop, we already achieve significant environmental gains. Our cups lining, and packaging lids are plant-based. We use a bioplastic derived from corn starch which is also renewable, biodegradable, composable and sustainable.
Being Entirely plant based our cups and packing will commercially compost. In a home compost trial our Tree Free Packaging broke down completely leaving only nutrients behind in less than 30 days, our Tree Free cups were gone in 60 days and our PLA lids were gone in 90
