Compostable Biodegradable Sustainable Packaging

Compostable Biodegradable Sustainable Packaging

The Source mindset is not just about providing healthy and sustainably sourced food to the community. It is an overall lifestyle, dedicated to preserving Mother Nature and to reducing our overall impact on the environment. We care just as much about where our food comes from as we do about how we package these foods and what type of footprint we are leaving behind. We have dedicated a lot of time finding packaging and storage for our food and goods so that they are as good for the earth as the food is for you. 

As we share our FarmBox and open the market, we aim to be as transparent about where our food comes from as we are about what your food comes in. We are continuing to educate ourselves on the most sustainable practices and always eager to learn more. 

The Box 

We researched many different companies to find those who shared our belief on sustainability. We also made it a point to work with companies right here in the USA so that we could support other small businesses but also so that we could also reduce the amount of travel needed to receive much of the packaging you see inside your box. You can be sure that all of the pouches and bags your Source items came in were created with recycled, compostable and recycle-friendly materials. Those clear “plastic” looking bags that certain items arrive in are made of FSC-certified wood-cellulose-derived bioplastic and are compostable, vegan, and non-GMO. Our box, packing paper and even our tape are made of 100% recycled materials. Those colorful labels and stickers well they consist of biostone so no trees or petrochemicals were used in the manufacturing of these items. Finally, that beautiful notecard and recipe card you may have seen, that was hand-made on paper embedded with wildflower seeds. It was also produced right here in the USA, with love, so you can be certain it is 100% biodegradable and good for the planet. We hope you’ll grow some flowers. 

The Market 

We didn’t stop our sustainable mission at our FarmBox, we are taking it all the way to Source Market. We are choosing to create a space where you can bring your own containers or buy refillable jars and enjoy the process of refilling your favorite goods at your leisure. Be sure to check back regularly for our opening date.
