The Terravive vision is guided by our three main values:
Domestic Manufacturing, Sustainability, Diversity
For sustainability and quality purposes, Terravive products are made and manufactured in the United States. After the Terravive raw material is produced in the United States, the resin is then converted into Terravive’s finished products that are also manufactured in the United States.
The sustainability benefits of producing Terravive’s raw material and converting that raw material into finished products all within the United States are immense. From a carbon emissions perspective, massive amounts of CO2 are saved by Terravive fully operating in the United States. Even though some may manufacture compostable products, many of Terravive’s competitors have global supply chains that produce significant amounts of carbon emissions in the production and transport of their products from overseas factories.
Additionally, Terravive’s manufacturing and supply chains in the United States allow us to provide very responsive services to our clients since we do have to rely on overseas logistics delays. This responsiveness also allows our clients to hold less inventory that they may have to otherwise hold in anticipation of supply disruptions overseas.
Terravive’s domestic manufacturing facilities are ISO or SQF certified. They comply with all environmental and labor laws in the United States.
Diversity and inclusion are key to Terravive’s business strategy. To produce products with the highest level of quality, we must have unique perspectives and backgrounds represented in our team and work.
At Terravive, diversity means understanding that differences in perspectives and backgrounds are actually our greatest strength. We’ve built an inclusive environment in which everyone is valued, respected, and expected to bring their true selves to ethically expand our business.
This starts with our executive team. Terravive is a woman, minority, and veteran owned and operated business and categorizes as a WOSB, SDB and SWAM certified. Terravive believes that its past, current, and future successes are dependent on diverse hiring practices to ensure we have a diverse workforce. The best products and most qualified employees will enable Terravive to ultimately leverage our success to drive positive impact on society and the environment.
Terravive utilizes home compostable and ocean degradable materials and Terravive’s products are built to perform just like plastic, but they truly break down like plants. Our products cleanly break down in rivers, seawater, lakes, landfills, industrial composters, and even your backyard!
