Preserve, a certified B Corporation, is a leading sustainable consumer goods company that produces eco-friendly household products. Their product lines range from food storage, tableware, and personal care, and are all made from 100 percent recycled plastic or plant-based compostable materials. Through innovations in recycled and biodegradable materials and sustainable design, Preserve has been creating more resourceful ways to make everyday products since 1996. The company is powered in part by the recycling efforts of individuals and companies via its Preserve Gimme 5 program, which accepts "#5" plastics, such as yogurt cups and other common containers, and transforms them into new products. Preserve is uniquely positioned to make a meaningful difference in terms of pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, global warming, waste reduction, and natural resource preservation. The Preserve lines can be found in more than 7,000 retail locations across the U.S., including Whole Foods Market and Trader Joe's, and are best-selling in each of its categories in the $140 billion natural retail market.
