Emerald’s product line was developed with only a select few recycled material products and by the year 2000, had expanded the line to include its well-known Tree-Free™ products that are biodegradable, compostable, Bisphenol-A (BPA) free and chlorine free. Emerald products are manufactured using sustainable, rapidly renewable alternative materials including, sugarcane bagasse, bamboo, plant starch and eucalyptus in place of hardwood trees and petroleum-based plastic.
