West Bend promotes conservative use of disposables

No one wants to use disposables if we don’t need to, but at times a quick meal at our desks is a time-saving convenience for our associates. And regardless of the reason, those associates who use disposable tableware from The Terrace, our company cafeteria, appreciate the availability of these products.
 
Here at West Bend, we pride ourselves on being environmentally responsible, and that includes disposable products. The soup cups, coffee cups, and cold beverage cups we offer come from INGEO NatureWorks, and are made from 100% annually-renewable resources that are ASTM D6868 certified, compostable, and chlorine free. The plates, which are from Harvest Fiber, are biodegradable products, 100% BPI certified, and compostable. The cutlery is made of Plastarch Material (PSM) derived from corn and other biodegradable materials that are easily compostable. Paper napkins are a SYSCO EarthPlus product made from post-consumer materials. We ask all of our associates to use these disposables conservatively and responsibly.
 
At the same time, we thank our associates for their efforts to be environmentally responsible in The Terrace. Many of them wash the disposable cutlery and repeatedly reuse it. More than half of them use their own hot and cold beverage cups at work. And in keeping with our sustainability efforts, West Bend will continue to promote and support more participation through continued education and awareness.
