Rubicon Global, World Centric Join Forces to Promote Shared Sustainability Vision

Atlanta, Georgia (Sept. 27, 2016) Rubicon Global, the global leader in cloud-based, sustainable waste and recycling solutions, has announced a strategic partnership with World Centric, a leading supplier of certified compostable food service products.

Leveraging its proprietary technology, Rubicon is disrupting the waste and recycling industry by reducing costs, diverting more waste from landfills, and empowering independent businesses. As part of its mission to eradicate landfills, Rubicon seeks to partner with like-minded organizations such as World Centric. The Petaluma, California-based company manufactures compostable plates, cups, cutlery and other food service packaging from plants, providing a more sustainable alternative to plastic and StyrofoamTM products.

“Rubicon works with many restaurants, convenience stores and other businesses in food service to find innovative solutions for their waste,” Rubicon CEO Nate Morris says. “Sharing World Centric’s products with our customers is one more way we can help them keep trash out of landfills and operate more sustainably.”

Rubicon and World Centric will each explore ways to connect with the other business’ growing customer base and promote their shared vision of a zero-waste world. Both Rubicon and World Centric are Certified B Corporations, a community committed to using business as a force for good. Notable B Corporations include Patagonia, The Honest Company, Ben & Jerry’s, Etsy and Warby Parker.

“World Centric is committed to reducing waste,” World Centric CEO Aseem Das says. “We believe our compostable products and Rubicon’s organics diversion and recycling model both represent major steps toward that goal, and we look forward to working together to create a more sustainable world.”
