What is Tree-Free™?Emerald™ Tree-Free™ products 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.Emerald's innovation 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® products a sustainable alternative to traditional paper products.
What is BPA Free?
Emerald™ Tree-Free™ Hot Cups are also BPA free. Bisphenol A (BPA) is a potentially toxic hormone-mimicking chemical used in some plastics and plastic sealants. BPA has also been found in the ink on newspapers and receipts, leading to the presence of BPA in recycled paper products. Emerald Brand Tree-Free™ products are naturally BPA free!
What is Chlorine Free?
Emerald's pulp bleaching process uses Hydrogen Peroxide, a much safer alternative to elemental chlorine gas, making Emerald™ Products Chlorine Free.
What is PFAS Free?
Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals that are often used in food packaging. These chemicals don't breakdown and can accumulate in the human body over time and lead to adverse health effects.
What is USDA Biobased?
A USDA Biobased product is identified as a product that is made up of primarily biological or agricultural materials. The USDA label assures consumers that the product contains a USDA-verified amount of renewable biological ingredients.
