World Centric’s collection of plant-based, compostable tableware products are now available at Target stores nationwide and on Target.com. Primarily made from unbleached renewable plant fibers and plant-based plastic, the World Centric retail collection offers Target customers a sustainable alternative to traditional petroleum-based plastic disposable tableware options.
The World Centric products now available on Target shelves include unbleached plant fiber plates and bowls, cutlery, straws and clear cold cups made from plant-based plastic, and FSC-certified hot cups and paper straws. The plates and bowls are microwave and freezer safe and can be used for both hot foods up to 200° Fahrenheit and cold items. The hot cups have a plant-based bio-lining instead of petroleum-based plastic. The cold cups, straws and utensils are free of any petroleum-based plastic.
The entire World Centric retail line is also 100% compostable, which means that all of the products will turn into soil in commercial composting facilities where available. The products are chlorine-free and take less energy to make than traditional disposables. World Centric also partners with environmental and social organizations whose programs help offset its carbon emissions.
