"The Waste Reduction Store is a store for businesses
and organizations run by people who want to change the world. We are a
western Canadian, independently owned, woman run business.
We specialize in the sale of food containers made from plants. Our food containers are free of BPA (Bisphenol-A) as they are not made from a petroleum derived resin. Most number 7 plastics are derived from petroleum, a substance we believe humans should not use to create products in contact with our food. It is a non-renewable resource; it is not recognized by nature in a plastic or polystyrene form; it requires additional energy to recycle plastics; most plastics are not recycled and are used only a few times before they sit in landfills or pollute our world.
At the end of their life cycle our products are fully compostable. This means our containers can be turned into dirt within 180 days at a composting facility! Compost is an amazing alternative to petroleum derived fertilizers which contain chemicals. We can no longer depend on landfills to bury our problems and non-renewable resources to create disposable products. Our two warehouses are located in Calgary and Winnipeg, Canada.
We distribute across Canada from Whitehorse all the way to St-John’s Newfoundland!"
