Crafted from plants

Tellus uses plant fibers including sugarcane (known as bagasse) to create innovative plates, bowls, and takeout containers that compost back into the earth in 84 days in a commercial composting facility.

How traceable is our supply chain?

All Tellus products are created, packaged and shipped from the state of Florida which keeps our carbon footprint low. Unlike other manufacturers that source materials and produce their products outside of the USA, we proudly use sugarcane grown within a 40 mile radius of our Belle Glade plant and only partner with reputable, U.S. based plant fiber suppliers that provide adequate sourcing information.

Durable for hot & cold foods, you say?

Our products are heavy duty, and durable. They are powered by plants to perform well with hot & cold foods. Did we mention they’re 100% compostable too?
