It’s refreshing to see a company making the effort to reduce their carbon emission to be more environmentally friendly, as well as create a tasty product. Sunchips have gone above and beyond to provide what we can a “greener” product. Not only has the company begun using solar technology at their Modesto, California plant, but they have created a plant based bag that is fully compostable. The company boasts that their chip bag will break down in a hot, active compost pile within 14 weeks.
When the bag is placed in the compost pile, it will be a “brown material” for the pile. Cutting the bag into smaller strips will assist in the bag composting at a faster rate. There are different methods of composter bins, so find the one that is right for you and your home.
Although, the plant based chip bag is a bit louder than it’s predecessor, it’s a small price to pay for it’s gift back to Mother Earth. This is a huge step in the right direction. Finally, a company willing to find solutions that are outside of the box. The more food products that can be made out of recyclable or compostable materials, the better off we will be. It’s about time. Bravo Sunchips!
