Ingeo Clamshells

Ingeo Clamshells

If you want to reduce your ecological footprint then are Ingeo™clamshells are a good choice.  Unlike traditional clamshells that are made from non-renewable petroleum based polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or polypropylene (PP), our clamshells are made from Ingeo™, a biodegradable and compostable plastic made from annually renewable corn.

Not only is Ingeo™derived from annually renewable corn, but it environmentally outperforms every major petroleum based plastic.  Manufacturing of the new Ingeo™ plastic emits 77 percent less CO2 and consumes 56 percent less energy than the equivalent weight of PET.

Our Ingeo™ clamshells are also 100% biodegradable and compostable.  Therefore to lower your footprint even more and to divert waste from landfills, consider composting used clamshells in a commercial composting facility.

Note that composting is required for biodegradation.  Our clamsells will biodegrade in 180 days or less in a commercial composting facility but may take a year or more in a home composting system.  If you would like help with your composting program, please contact us.

Our Ingeo™clamshells are strong, durable, and great for cold foods like salads, deserts, produce and bakery items.
