Pollock is exclusive Texas distributor of case and bulk packs

Pollock Paper (, a national distributor of retail packaging, food service supplies, industrial packaging, cleaning products and equipment, and janitorial supplies, is now the exclusive Texas provider of case and bulk packs of VerTerraâ„¢ (, an eco-friendly line of disposable dinnerware made from fallen leaves and water.

Recipient of the "Best New Green/Environmentally-friendly Product Award" at the 2008 National Products Expo East conference, VerTerra sets a new standard for single-use plates, bowls and serving dishes; not only are the products non-toxic, biodegradable, compostable, durable, lightweight and convenient, but also downright stylish.

According to David Berman, Pollock's Corporate Sales and Marketing Manager, "VerTerra dinnerware meets both the highest standards for environmentally-friendly products, and follows some of the most stringent safety standards for disposable food packaging.

"We are thrilled to add VerTerra dinnerware to our collection of green and sustainable food service solutions," stated Berman, noting these products are already popular with major organic grocery chain catering departments. "Made only of fallen palm leaves, steam, heat and pressure, VerTerra's products exemplify what we at Pollock refer to as environmentally intelligent solutions. VerTerra is the pure, all-natural choice for party-ready dinnerware."

  • Naturally biodegrades in fewer than 2 months after disposal
  • BPI-certified 100% compostable

  • Free from chemicals, glues, lacquers, bonding agents, bleaches, dyes, plastics, etc.
  • Microwave-safe up to 2 minutes on high and oven-safe for up to 45 minutes at 350 degrees

Amy Thompson, Pollock Paper's Corporate Merchandiser for food service summed it up when she said, "VerTerra is as 'green' as it gets. Not only does their name mean 'true to the earth,' but their products and production steps reflect that commitment as well."
