A newfound partnership is helping one company push forward in its ambitious sustainability metrics. Plant-based dip and spread supplier Hope Foods® recently announced its recognition as a Plastic Neutral Certified Product. The provider has teamed up with Plastic Action Platform, rePurpose Global, to remove and properly process nature-bound plastic as the first step in its long-term sustainability goals.

Aubrea Alford, Marketing Manager, Hope Foods®"Plastic neutral means that we recover as much plastic from nature as we use in our products and packaging through our new partnership with rePurpose Global," said Aubrea Alford, Marketing Manager at Hope Foods. "By purchasing Hope Foods products, consumers can help us recover even more plastic from the environment. For each pack sold, we give back to rePurpose Global."

According to a press release, Hope Foods' partnership with rePurpose global seeks to achieve plastic neutrality through the recovery and ethical processing of as much nature-bound plastic used in the production of Hope Foods containers. This is possible for the company because Hope Foods products, including its small-batch organic Hummus and Cashew and Almond dips, require a minimal amount of plastic use to preserve freshness and maintain food safety requirements.

Hope Foods' program participation includes a focus on impact project Neela Sapana in Chennai, India, to fund the co-processing of multi-layered plastic (MLP) that often goes uncollected in India, the release went on to explain. The project funding enables rePurpose Global to collect the hazardous MLP waste and co-process the waste into cement kilns where energy is recovered from the plastic and the remaining waste is disposed of without harmful emissions; the funding also supports waste workers' incomes and provides access to an inclusive, safe, and dignified work environment.

Aditya Siroya, Co-Founder and Chief Impact Officer, rePurpose Global"By having products certified Plastic Neutral, Hope Foods is not only tackling the plastic waste crisis, but also supporting waste workers' incomes by attaching value to hard-to-recycle plastics, and providing stable and fairly-paid employment opportunities through local waste management enterprises," said Aditya Siroya, Co-Founder and Chief Impact Officer of rePurpose Global.
