Evanesce Showcases 100% Plant-Based, Fully Compostable Food Packaging at National Restaurant Association Show

Attendees at the National Restaurant Association show will get their first glimpse at revolutionary new foodware that could turn around the restaurant industry’s reputation as one of the biggest industry polluters in the world. Evanesce, a global leader in sustainable serviceware and foodware, will be at Booth #8818 at the National Restaurant Association Show, the largest annual gathering of foodservice professionals in the Western Hemisphere. The event is taking place on May 21-24 in Chicago at McCormick Place.

Evanesce will offer free samples of its 100% plant-based and fully compostable foodware products to attendees. The products are made from agricultural waste and are fully compostable in less than 90 days. Booth visitors will also be able to meet members of Evanesce’s executive team.

“The restaurant and food service industries are facing an environmental crisis stemming from alarming rates of single-use plastics,” says Douglas Horne, founder and CEO of Evanesce. “Less than 5% of plastic is actually getting recycled which represents a huge threat to our planet for generations to come.” Not only are expanded polystyrene (EPS) and single use plastic products unsustainable, but consumers are demanding action with bans in 60 countries, Horne says. “The packaging industry should be taking this universal leap in developing packaging products that don’t require more than 500 years to decompose. We’ve developed the technology and products to accomplish this.”

As an environmental advocate, Horne founded Evanesce with a focus on providing sustainable solutions to the packaging and food service industries. The company offers alternatives that are not only eco-friendly and certified compostable, but also engineered to meet the high standards these industries demand. Evanesce’s array of compostable serviceware products are cost competitive to other alternatives, offer durability as strong as traditional plastic, and are BPI certified to be commercially compostable.

The company is guided by the principles of the circular economy approach, utilizing agricultural waste to create its full line of plant-based products to revolutionize the sustainable packaging sector. Doug Horne will be available for interviews during the show.  Learn more at www.evanesce.com.
