Bio Raw is committed to leading the industry in minimizing our impact on the Earth and its resources. We take every step to make sure we are producing great products in the most environmentally conscious ways possible. We are active in this commitment through the implementation of the following:
Waste DiversionWe have partnered with a small local waste collection agency which specializes in organics and recycling programs. They ensure that our company responsibly diverts organic and recyclable items from our landfills and transforms our waste into resources. The program is able to provide us with diversion results and C02 diversion equivalents for our facility to track out program goals.
Energy ConservationWe are committed to minimizing the energy use in our facility, this includes: using energy star products, using programmable timers, taking advantage of natural light and programmable thermostats. This core value resonates with our staff, who have participated in training, and actively participate in ensuring our standards are met.
We use an accredited program to offset the greenhouse gas emissions generated by our activities. We use Bullfrog Power’s generators to put renewable electricity onto the grid that matches the amount of conventional electricity used by our facility.
We ensure that we only use packaging which meets ASTM D6400 compostable standards and that is ECOLOGO certified. All the packaging we use is made from renewable materials such as corn.
Along with this, we will only purchase FSC certified, unbleached paper, which is used for our customers invoices and paper towel for our facility.
We never use toxic chemicals in our facility or in ANY of our products. We proudly use cleaner and healthier alternatives to conventional products, such as: organic apple cider vinegar and essential oils.
We execute large scale marketing initiatives to better educate our customers on how to properly dispose of their food and encourage the diversion of waste from landfills.
