We’re happy to print compostable labels made from plants not plastic for 5 Gyres.
The following is from the 5 Gyres website. Please support them!
Most of the things we buy use disposable plastic:
We currently recover only 5-10% of the plastics we produce.
50% are buried in landfills and some are remade into durable goods, but much of it washes out to sea.”
Fish, turtles and even whales eat plastic objects, which can sicken or kill them. Ocean animals are also killed by dangerous plastic waste that entangles or traps them, often suffocating them underwater.
Small ocean animals, like fish, ingest tiny plastic particles. These toxic particles pass on to us when we eat seafood.
Hundreds of ocean species are threatened by plastic pollution, as well as the survival of the ocean itself. Humans depend on the ocean for food and as a healthy ecosystem that maintains the balance of the greenhouse gas CO2. …
Scientists agree: If the oceans die, we die.

We founded Yai’s Thai at the beginning of 2015 with a shared love of delicious food, and a shared desire to make vibrant Thai flavors more accessible. We want every meal to be a symphony, but like most people, we don’t always have the time to put a masterpiece together. So we set out to create easy-to-use sauces that are unlike anything else out there. It started with the original Thai salsa and has grown from there.
We get our Thai inspiration from Leland’s mom, who grew up in Thailand. She taught Leland everything he knows about Thai cooking, including how to make a Thai salmon salad passed down from her mom – Leland’s yai. And we love a good rhyme. After spending many evenings cooking with Sarah, we began tossing the idea around of stripping some of the main ingredients from this recipe, and creating a base sauce that could have the versatility of the most popular household condiment in the country – salsa.

Kay has always been passionate about the power of food – from the way we interact with it through sensory experiences to the way it empowers our bodies to its ability to connect people. During her time in college, Kay founded and ran her own healthy food truck with a mission to cultivate a wellness hub.
Zoe grew up in Hong Kong where 90% of the produce is imported and rarely tasted good. It wasn’t until she moved to the Bay Area that she both fell in love with the quality and variety of fruits and vegetables and learned firsthand how much good food was wasted, and was outraged that so much delicious edible produce was being thrown into landfills.
This revelation spurred her to develop a model to tackle this issue in a sustainable and scalable way. Once Zoe and Kay met they quickly saw the potential for a partnership that would seek to elevate Revive Foods to the next level.

The Green Ninja Team takes on climate, one pedal at a time.
The Green Ninja Project is excited to be a part of this year’s California Climate Ride as a team and beneficiary. The California Climate Ride is a 320-mile cycling charity tour that begins in Eureka and ends in San Francisco with an overall goal of raising awareness about climate change and supporting environmental non-profit organizations.
Taking on Climate Change with their Bikes
The Green Ninja Project is a non profit organization at San Jose State University (SJSU) created to inform the upcoming generation on climate change and inspire them to take action. The organization combines collaborative effort joining scientists, educators, and artists to develop compelling experiences through film and social action that help students understand the connections between human activity and our changing climate.
Help support these four students from SJSU who are riding for climate change on behalf of the Green Ninja Project. Support them by clicking here to view their Indiegogo campaign. Every donation comes with a sticker printed by Plan It Green Printing!

Commercial ‘Green’ Printing
Today, companies, cities and non-profits see the benefit in green printing: From meeting packaging laws on compostability and recycling, to the obvious branding opportunities. From USA Pavilion World Expo 2015 to World Centric, companies, colleges and cities buy and prefer ‘green’ when given a choice.
Today, the choices of ‘green’ stocks, methods of ‘green’ printing, ‘green’ certification bodies require an education in itself: Biopolymers, tree-free, stone, cellulose.
Now, large and small, Religious, Environmental, Animal and Scientific Groups/Organizations/Faiths are concerned and advocating for sustainability and against water pollution, plastics/degradation of plastic and it’s affect on animals and humans. Your Company's Printing is a necessity, but where is the stock printed on coming from? China, Taiwan, Canada, Indonesia or the U.S. of A? If the paper is coming from Indonesia or Canada, for instance, it's quite probably contributing to deforestation which, in turn, is contributing to the extinction of the native species, i.e., orangutan, tiger population.
Deforestation, extinction, this list goes on and on and out to an increasingly well-informed public. Clients and customers are demanding to know how the Companies products are printed and packaged. Are the inks petroleum or vegetable-based? Are your inks low V.O.C. (volatile organic compounds)? Is your paper and packaging FSC (Forest Stewardship Council), SFI (Sustainably Forestry Initiative) or BEP (Best Environmental Practices) Certified? Was it Made Carbon Neutral? Are your labels compostable?!!!
Since 2003 Plan It Green Printing has been helping companies green their print practices.
