NBA's Portland Trail Blazers choose Eco-Products compostable packaging

Business

The Portland Trail Blazers, an NBA team, have teamed up with Eco-Products, a Novolex brand, to introduce compostable foodservice packaging at their arenas.

The compostable items, including plates, bowls, trays, utensils, cups, and straws, are now available at all concession stands and premium areas in the Moda Center, the team's home stadium, and Portland’s Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Fans can easily participate in the composting programme by using designated bins throughout the arena, which offer a convenient way to dispose of compostable items and food scraps.

The composted material goes to a local Oregon farmer for use as nutrient-rich soil.

Eco-Products will also supply Rip City Reuse cups for the Moda Centre's reusable drinkware programme through its sister company, Waddington North America.

Ian Jacobson, President of Eco-Products, said: We’re thrilled to see compostables, recyclables and reusables working together at scale in a venue like Moda Center. The culture and fanbase in the Pacific Northwest make it the perfect place to try this for the first time, and we feel lucky to be a part of it.
