Boulder Canyon Natural Foods, an Inventure Foods company, is introducing a single-serve compostable package as the nation celebrates Earth Day. The new 2-oz. compostable bag is available with a suggested retail price of $1.29 per package in Boulder Canyon's Totally Natural kettle chip variety.

 

Last year for Earth Day, the company launched compostable packaging for the 7.5-oz size bag of its popular All Natural Kettle Cooked Potato Chip line.

 

The Boulder Canyon compostable packaging is made from wood pulp sourced from plantations that have Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) or similar certification. These materials are certified to meet the "Specification for Compostable Plastics" standards set by the American Society for Testing and Materials. The bags can be composted in home or industrial composters, recycled through approved organic recycling programs or incinerated at modern incineration plants. 


Boulder Canyon single-serve bags make green snacking convenient and at a reasonable cost for consumers, while helping to sustain Mother Earth. 


"Boulder Canyon is committed to empowering individuals to be good global citizens and to live a healthier lifestyle," said Steve Sklar, senior vice president of marketing for Boulder Canyon. "Our new single-serve compostable package will help reduce landfill waste one bag at a time."


Boulder Canyon is a national sponsor of American Rivers, the leading river conservation organization in the United States. In addition, Boulder Canyon purchases enough Renewable Energy Credits to offset 100 percent of its operating emissions annually. This effort prevents nearly 3.5 million pounds of carbon dioxide from being emitted into the atmosphere each year.
