Earthcycle Palm Fiber Packaging

Earthcycle is simple, natural, and down to earth. Our certified home compostable packaging is made from palm fiber, a renewable resource, which gets discarded when the fruit from the palm husk is harvested throughout the year for its oil.

Before Earthcycle's natural packaging alternative, the leftover palm fiber had to be incinerated or landfilled, creating a waste stream in the process and negative impacts for the environment and health of communities. Now, with the smart design concept of Earthcycle, the fiber continues its useful life in the form of disposable packaging and once finished, will decompose in any backyard or balcony compost within 90 days, and make a healthy contribution to the soil.
