First and foremost, we have a new and long awaited company name, Pura Vida Bioplastics. This company name fits 100% with what we are about and our vision of natural products that come from the Earth and return to the Earth having no ecotoxicity. PURA VIDA!! (aka PURA LIFE)
Our straw manufacturing line was, unfortunately, delayed by a few months as we had to adjust and assure that we are running verifiable certified home, soil and marine compostable material for our straws. There is so much greenwashing going on that we had lies and misdirection from our own advisor out of California that was promoting industrial compostable material to be tested on our machine and telling us it was home compostable. This relationship has been terminated! They are being held accountable for deceptive business practices and not aligning with Pura Vida’s integrity and moral commitment to the public and our planet. We recommend everyone to go BEYOND GREEN and assure you are receiving certifications that are verifiable and forthright.
We have grocery and t-shirt bags being manufactured by our third-party partners and the orders are growing so rapidly that we are looking further into more expansion to keep up. This is so amazing to see this coming to fruition. These new relationships will be revealed soon so we can show the recognition they so dearly deserve.
We will be posting more images and videos over this next month so you all can see the progress!
Again, thank you for your support, please like and share our social media and always remember, Let’s go beyond green and redefine plastic!
Kirt McGhee, CEO
