About World Centric (http://www.worldcentric.org/about-us/company-info)

World Centric products, http://www.worldcentric.org/biocompostables, are made with annually renewable resources like corn, sugarcane and wheat straw fiber. Sugar cane and wheat straw fiber are also discarded by-products of the agriculture industry, and it uses this discarded fiber to make sustainable alternatives to plastics and polystyrene.

World Centric is committed to becoming the model of how sustainable enterprises should be run, http://www.worldcentric.org/sustainability. For example, they offset their carbon emissions and annually give 25% of their profits (before taxes) to grass root social and environmental organizations. World Centric hopes to one day give away 100% of their profits. The overall mission, vision and values of World Centric have remained consistent since their founding - to make a difference and create a more just and sustainable world.
