The package matters...

Updated: Sep 15, 2023

I strive to make the best choices possible at each step of the microgreens' journey, from seed to plate. Packaging, an often-overlooked aspect, is an important stage in my business.

There are many factors that go into my packaging choices, such as presentation to my customers, preservation of the greens, and environmental impact. Since most people are doing weekly orders, that's a lot of packaging. For some consumers, this can be a deal-breaker. If you want to learn more, read on.

Presentation is crucial. I want the microgreens to be showcased in the best possible way because you won't eat them if they don't look good, and food in fridges needs to be visible. Therefore, having a clear package is important to me. My packaging is clear, but it's not made from toxic plastic. Instead, it's made from plants, using way less energy to produce.

Preservation is also important. Once you get your greens home, they need to

remain as fresh as possible while you consume them. The tight-closing lid keeps the air out, and the cold temperatures of the fridge will allow you to enjoy your microgreens all week long.

As for environmental impact, PLA is made from renewable plants, using 65% less energy to create than plastic. It's certified 100% compostable by BPI. While no packaging is perfect, I've made the best choice I can for you and our planet. In the future, I will be exploring other options for subscription home deliveries, such as mason jars that can be sanitized and used repeatedly, similar to milk deliveries in glass bottles.
