What are Tree-Free plates?
Emerald™ Tree-Free plates are transforming agricultural waste and barren land into new revenue streams. Many farmers leave their waste to decompose or are forced to burn and discard the dry pulp residue after it is extracted from their crops. Burning and wasting this valuable material takes time and energy away from farmers and causes local air pollution to increase within the community.
Our innovations in Tree-Free™ material changes all of that! Unlike hardwood trees that take decades to grow to full maturity, Emerald™ uses rapidly renewable resources like sugarcane bagasse, wheat, and miscanthus, which all grow back in less than one year; making Emerald™ Farm to Tissue® and Farm to Paper® line of products a sustainable alternative to deforestation caused by traditional paper products.
