Jane's professional path is driven by an inquiry into how our lives are connected through the products we consume and the places and people that produce these products.
Ten years ago the market was just beginning to see some things in rigids, like compostable plates and cutlery for the to-go market that were starch- or potato-based materials. But you weren’t seeing brands on store shelves in plant-based flexible films. And even PLA, which has been around for some time, was for a long time only made from genetically modified corn sources. As an organic tea company, that was never going to be acceptable to us. The PLA in our material is sourced from non-GMO sugar cane that is Bonsucro-certified, so it’s not only ethically sourced, it’s ethically grown.7 June 2021
