“The CCC is a registered brand. In years past, it was displayed on the right hip of all stock belonging to the Triple C herd. This brand has been owned by the Carlisle family since 1963 and is one of the oldest registered brands in the province. We maintain the registration of the CCC even though we no longer physically brand our herd. The CCC is a part of our heritage to be passed on to the fourth generation of cattle producers. Organic wasn’t a term used years ago when all production was that way, it was just farming. We use the Triple C name for our organic beef as a reminder that some things are better done the old fashioned way.”

“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!”
