We manufacture, market and sell a recyclable paper plate product embedded with plant seeds that can be composted and germinate fruits, herbs or flowers. Other applications, with large revenue potential, being explored with major St. Louis-based companies for sale in the next year include a similar product concept but geared toward recyclable, compostable, product- packaging for breweries and other food and beverage companies. Our target market is environmentally conscious individuals. As scientists and politicians debate the truth of global warming and dwindling natural resources, green industry practices not only enjoy favorable public sentiment and the psychic income of a lower carbon footprint, but increased cost savings, supportive government policies, and ever-increasing profitability as well. Trends in consumption, government policy, and costs all point towards even more green industry business opportunities in the years ahead. In our increasingly connected world, consumers...

Trends in consumption, government policy, and costs all point towards even more green industry business opportunities in the years ahead. In our increasingly connected world, consumers are becoming more educated about the environmental impact of a growing population competing over finite natural resources. Put simply - most people are more open to less harmful products - especially if they are as easy to find and use as other products. Recently, there has been an undeniable and significant consumer interest in environmentally friendly business practices and products. A recent survey found that 88% of Americans believe taking care of the earth is very important - but only 52% believed that the government should be taking action to protect it. Globally, a report from 2014 says that 55% of consumers across 60 countries are willing to pay higher prices for goods from environmentally conscious companies. A 2013 study claims that 71% of Americans at least consider the environment as a factor when shopping. Organic food sales in particular seem to have turned a corner, jumping 11.3% in 2014, while overall food sales grew only 3%. Organic food has become far more mainstream over the last several years - expanding well beyond the niche market it once was. Sales in 2014 were over $35 billion - compared to only $3.4 billion in 1997. Growth is expected to continue strong through the forseable future.
