FRESH Café is proud to be a healthy food franchise for the environment. As part of our ongoing effort to educate our communities about the benefits of being healthy to to environment, we wanted to share with you what our healthy and delicious food is served in.
All of our food products, whether it is a refreshing fresh squeeze, a nutritious power bowl, or a mega tasty wrap, are served in bio-compostable cups and containers.
Why is it important to for FRESH to serve our products in bio-compostable cups and containers? Because FRESH Café is more than a healthy fast food franchise, we are a global enterprise that serves millions of people, and that is a lot of cups and containers. Our mission is to promote a healthy lifestyle, and in order to do that, we need to care about the environment and the impact the fast food industry has on it.
The good news is that disposable containers don’t have to end up in the landfill for thousands of years. There is another choice!
FRESH Café food and beverage packaging is made from a 100% renewable resource, that you can eat (although we don’t recommend that). That’s right, the delicious and nutritious food and beverages that you get from FRESH, are served in containers made of food. Isn’t that amazing? What’s more, you don’t have to worry about harmful chemicals leaching into your food either.
Polylactic Acid or Polyactide (PLA) is a compostable polymer derived from corn. PLA, is comparable to a traditional petroleum based plastic (the kind that takes a thousand years to break down), but it is completely compostable. That means that it will breakdown safely, and in a relatively short time, naturally in the environment, and eventually become a part of the dirt, soil, and earth. Our cups and containers look and feel like the regular plastic ones, you won’t be able to tell the difference. However, your cup or container will be making a world of difference.
