Why Recycling?

Above all, we want our products to skip the landfill. The US paper recycling rate is over 90% - this is why we’ve designed our Cruz Foam Inside products to be recycled. These products have gone through rigorous testing to be certified curbside recyclable through Western Michigan University. Cruz Foam Inside products are designed to go straight into the recycling bin - no fuss.

Why Composting?

We love to see Cruz Foam turned into healthy soil. Standalone Cruz Foam is a useful compost amendment and we encourage consumers to compost it in their homes. We are constantly striving to increase the availability of industrial composting by working with legislators, governments, and communities.

Why Now?

The world is changing, and so is the future of waste. The time is ripe for innovative products to make meaningful change. Cruz Foam, which is compostable on its own and recyclable when paired with paper, is at the forefront of this movement towards a more sustainable future.
