Microgreens Club – A Zero Waste Initiative

By: Micro YYC

Micro YYC is an urban indoor microgreens farm that provides microgreens to local markets, grocers, and restaurants. Their latest initiative: The Microgreens Club, is an entirely zero-waste service that delivers microgreens directly to customers in reusable containers. Containers are returned each week, sanitized, and reused indefinitely.

In the world of packaging, a reuse model Рas a part of a circular economy Рis the only model that ensures a sustainable world for future generations. Whether single-use containers are recyclable or compostable, they are an incredible burden on our waste management systems and in turn, the environment. When all roads lead to waste Рsometimes you have to try something new. This is where the Microgreens Club comes in Рin the first 9 months of operation, this initiative is set to divert more than 4500 single-use containers.

Micro YYC wants to make a difference as a business by leading the way towards less waste, more efficiency, and innovations in the ways that we grow and distribute food. The Microgreens Club sets out to do just that – and is making eating “green” easier than ever.
