ABOUT THE FOUNDERS

Co-owners Francheska Zaide and Sheldyn Scarff are on a mission to protect and preserve the environment by offering eco-friendly products that better our lives and future. Sheldyn, a native of Seattle, Washington, and Francheska, a native of the Philippines, met in New York City while working in the Fashion Industry. Together, they witnessed the increase of plastic waste and trash pollution throughout the city due to the new food delivery services and 'on-demand' consumer consumption habits. Eager to contribute to a solution, the two set out to source fully compostable and truly sustainable food packaging alternatives. Settling in the Philippines, a country that produces 2.7 million metric tons of plastic waste per year, they discovered the major lack of eco-friendly packaging alternatives and waste management systems. The duo is determined to help eliminate the countries plastic intake and create viable economic, environmental, and societal value to a country in need.
