Other Sustainability Notes

The current state of the world has made one thing really clear - we are all in this together, we are all connected and our individual actions matter more than we know.  We are at a pivotal point in the history of humankind, a time where we all need to acknowledge and reduce our collective impact on this planet.  That is why ChicoBag & To-Go Ware has committed to being Climate Neutral Certified, setting a new bar for companies using business as a force for good.   Do we have to trade off clean air, land, and water for a robust and thriving economy?  The simple answer is no.  There is a revolution of leaders utilizing business as a powerful force for good.  Next to climate change, plastic pollution is the second greatest threat to life on this planet.  Together, we can flatten the curve on climate change and the damage caused by single-use plastics.  Join us by pledging to #EFFSingleUse and take an active role in keeping single-use plastics out of the waste stream.
