“We offer an extensive assortment of specialty and multi-purpose containers ready for purchase as well as bespoke end-to-end custom packaging services. Our in-house team of engineers can help design the perfect package suited to any customer’s needs,” says Paul Antoniadis, CEO of good natured Products Inc.
good natured® offers a full range of earth-friendly products from food storage bags and bin bags, to recyclers and waste bins all made from 90% plant-based material. With over 400 products, good natured has a large assortment of certified compostable (where commercial composting facilities exist) packaging made from rapidly renewable resources.
The company aims to create better everyday products that help businesses big and small break up with fossil fuels. good natured gives businesses and consumers a more sustainable and earth-friendly alternative to the traditional petroleum-based plastics with products made from plant-based renewable resources, without any chemicals of concern. They are a company that believes that people at their core are, in fact, good natured and will make the right choice when given a viable option.
Sustainable products that work
As Paul explains that it's more than just plant-based content that people care about. “When it comes to sustainable choices, businesses and consumers want to make the switch but they need to feel confident that the package actually works, too. That's why we take extra care when designing our products to ensure they perform equal to, if not better than, the petroleum-based equivalents.”
Snappy seals for maximum product freshness, modern, clean designs that amplify product visualization, and stackability are all features that can help growers in their operations and the retailers on the shelf. “All this has been carefully considered to ensure that we not only deliver a sustainable choice but one that actually works too,” he added.
Packaging made for innovative farmers
good natured has had many vertical farm customers partner with them to switch from petroleum-based plastic to plant-based packaging - from transparent hanging herb containers to vented clamshells. Paul explains that while speaking with these customers and understanding what motivates them, the team discovered many similarities between what they are doing and what good natured is doing.
“Just like us, our vertical farm customers are looking to take a more innovative and unconventional approach to an existing product and way of doing things. We both deploy technology to improve centuries-old industries and make them more sustainable and scalable.”
An eye on sustainability
The good natured team does business by putting sustainability first and making intentional choices that have less of an impact on the earth's resources - this results in a quality product. “We are very intentional in not using any chemicals of concern that can be found in petroleum-based packaging, given the choice many vertical farms would choose plant-based packaging that safely delivers their product to their customers while keeping their health top of mind.
