Compostable Packaging: Food wrappers are the fourth most common single-use plastic found in the environment, according to UN Environment. The broader context of rightful living includes being caretakers of our planet. LivBar uses all 100% compostable wrappers made from cellulose, the most abundant of naturally occurring organic materials (certified to both ASTM D6400 and EN13432 by Vinçotte, Din Certco, and the BPI).
Certified Organic: From the ingredients we use to the facility we use them in, LivBar believes in the impact of choosing organic. LivBar is Certified Organic through both the USDA & Oregon Tilth. This means that we are responsible for following a myriad of strict standards, including working with suppliers who also follow organic practices.
According to the US Department of Agriculture, “Organic farmers utilize practices that:
- Maintain and improve fertility, soil structure and biodiversity, and reduce erosion
- Reduce the risks of human, animal, and environmental exposure to toxic materials
- Fine-tune farming practices to meet local production conditions and satisfy local markets
