Straus Family Creamery has received Gold-level zero-waste certification from Green Business Certification Inc. for its focus on sustainability across the business.

The first 100% certified organic creamery in the U.S., Straus Family Creamery is now also the first creamery in the world to receive this TRUE (Total Resource Use and Efficiency) zero-waste certification.

Gold-level certification involves over 50 specific sustainable practices across 15 zero-waste categories. Those efforts included purchasing a bailing machine to reuse shrink wrap used on shipping pallets so that the plastic can be sent directly to a recycler, instead of putting it in the municipal waste stream.

At the Straus Petaluma offices and warehouse, the company diverted 95% of waste from landfills, resulting in more than 153,000 pounds of waste reduction.
