Best SME Eco-Friendly Waste Solutions Provider – UK 2020 awarded to Earth Friendly Foodware.

Westward Ho! based Earth Friendly Foodware today announces winning SME Eco-Friendly Waste Solutions Provider – UK 2020 in BUILD Magazine’s Recycling & Waste Management Awards 2020.

Founded in 2018, the BUILD Recycling & Waste Management Awards celebrate the achievements and innovations made by the companies and individuals from within the Recycling & Waste Management industry.

The awards aim to cover all the aspects of the Recycling & Waste sector and make sure every company that has innovated and completed outstanding work in the past 12 months receive the recognition they deserve. With an increasing amount of attention over the past 12 months, the recycling and waste management sector has become a more prominent industry.

“We are honoured to win this award,” stated Andrew Cross, Founder, Earth Friendly Foodware. “Our commitment to providing composting solutions for the packaging we supply has been key to our success and we are delighted to have this work recognised.”

Earth Friendly Foodware offer hot composting products from HotBin Composting, Ridan Composters and Tidy Planet. Starting from £150, each composting solution has been verified as suitable for disposal of compostable food and drink packaging from companies like Vegware.

“When we started Earth Friendly Foodware in 2017, it became immediately obvious that disposal of compostable packaging was of grave concern to many. Using an onsite or at home composter not only breaks down garden and food waste but allows compostable packaging like coffee cups and takeaway boxes to be returned to the earth as compost. A true, natural circular economy.”

With Government warning that intensive farming practises will eradicate UK soil fertility within the next 30-40 years, the quest to improve agricultural yields is damaging the very soil used to grow crops.

Cross added, “With prominent figures like Tim Smit (founder of the Eden Project) calling for a new agricultural revolution by elevating agronomy (the science of soil and crops), we felt compelled to promote composting as an end of life solution for the food packaging we supply. Your used coffee cup can be returned to UK soils to help grow next year’s crops!”
