The Truth behind our Science

Plastic Vs. Fiber?

Why is plastic a bad thing? Why is Footprint's innovative plant-based fiber tech so important for our health?

Layer -1 We design our technologies with the intent to be recyclable, compostable, & biodegradable. Our Footprint Barrier Technology™ eliminates the need for single-use plastics. Our barrier technologies protect against oil, water, and oxygen.
Layer 2 Plastic bowls contain toxic chemicals that leach into your food. Scientific medical studies report significant health hazards like endocrine system disorders and even death. Some plastics contain phthalates, which are causing a human health crisis.
Layer -2 Our plant-based fiber is both microwave & oven safe. Cutting-edge engineering creates customer convenience.
Layer -3 The truth is, less than 9% of plastic is actually recycled.*

Plastic ends up in landfills and oceans and can persist for over 100 years.
