Mission

Protect Life.

Emerald™ Brand’s mission has always been to combat climate change by providing products and solutions that help mainstream sustainability in the everyday disposables category. But the reality is, our mission goes well beyond just disposables. In 2018 we decided to reestablish our company mission to encompass what we really do at Emerald™: Protect life. Every tree we save, every microplastic removed from the ocean, every time our chemical-free products are used, our mission is accomplished.

Our Story

It all started with an idea. Let’s make disposable products that are safe for the environment and the people who use them. Simple, right? No, it was incredibly difficult and took years of research and investment, but we did it and we changed the world of packaging and disposable products forever.

Founded by Ralph Bianculli in 1997, Emerald™ Brand’s original product line was developed with only a select few recycled material products. By the year 2007, after extensive research, Emerald™ expanded the line to include its ground-breaking Tree-Free™ products that are biodegradable, compostable, Bisphenol-A (BPA) free and chlorine free.

Emerald™ Brand was founded on the passion of a father who wanted something healthier for his family, safer for the environment and everyone who shares it.

We’ll never stop fighting for change!

Farm to Paper™ and Farm to Tissue®

Production of Emerald’s Tree-Free™ and plastic-free products is making its way to the USA. Grown by the American Farmer, made by the American worker -we are transforming agricultural waste and barren land into new revenue streams. Many American farmers leave their waste to decompose or are forced to burn and discard the dry pulp residue after it is extracted from their crops. Burning and wasting this valuable material takes time and energy away from farmers and causes local air pollution to increase within the community.

Our innovation in Tree-Free™ materials changes all of that! Unlike hardwood trees that take decades to grow to full maturity, Emerald™ uses rapidly renewable resources like sugarcane bagasse, wheat, and miscanthus, which all grows back in less than one year; making Emerald™ Farm to Tissue® and Farm to Paper™ a sustainable, American-Made alternative.

Made from Virgin Material*

Virgin material is material that has not been previously used or consumed or subjected to processing other than for its original production like that of recycled content. Virgin material out-performs recycled products without harming the planet.
