Fast-casual healthy-dining franchise Nature’s Table rolls out compostable bowls made from sugarcane and wheat straw fiber, along with plant-based plastic lids, at its locations across the U.S.
Nature’s Table, a family-owned fast-casual restaurant focused on fresh and healthy dining, is partnering with compostable products company World Centric to introduce compostable bowls at its locations across the U.S. Aiming to eliminate the use of petroleum-based foam containers, Nature’s Table plans to have World Centric’s compostable bowls become a staple at most locations within the next two to three months. The initial launch will focus on compostable bowls made from sugarcane and wheat straw fiber, complemented by plant-based plastic lids.
“Since our founding in 1977, Nature’s Table has been a pioneer in sensible eating,” says Nature’s Table Senior Vice President Bryan Buffalo. “We were focused on healthier food choices, even when it wasn’t top of mind with our customers. Now that we have successfully tackled nutrition in our cafés, we want to put the same focus and effort into increasing our use of environmentally-conscious paper goods and lowering our carbon footprint.”
