GoodLeaf Farms switches to more environmentally friendly clamshell packaging for its line of microgreens and baby greens.

All GoodLeaf products are now packaged and sold in more sustainable BioPET clamshells, which are similar in look and feel to the APET plastic of its original packaging, but contains more recycled content and plant-based materials.

“Sustainability is an important part of our business at GoodLeaf,” says Jacquie Needham, accounts manager with GoodLeaf Farms. “We strive to manage our indoor vertical farms to have a minimal impact on the environment. Moving to more sustainable packaging is another step in that journey.”

BioPET packaging — supplied to GoodLeaf by British Columbia-based Good Natured Products — contains 33 per cent post-consumer recycled plastic and 20 per cent plant-based material, in this case sugar cane. The new GoodLeaf packaging is recyclable, and there are no harmful BPAs or phthalates.
