PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second year in a row, Repurpose is one of Inc.'s fastest-growing, private companies in the U.S. This year, the Los Angeles-based brand secured spot number 52 in the consumer products category of the influential media outlet's annual ranking.

"We're really proud of how our compostable, single-use tableware is resonating with customers, and it's fantastic to be recognized again this year by Inc.," says Lauren Gropper, founder and CEO of Repurpose. "We're honored to be among these innovative American companies that are reshaping our homes and our health for the better."

Consumer demand for Repurpose's compostable, single-use cups, plates, bowls, utensils, and straws has been fueling the company's impressive growth. All Repurpose products break down in an industrial composter in just 180 days. BPA-free, chlorine-free, with only soy-based inks, Repurpose tableware also requires fewer fossil resources to produce.

"We have seen our business really hit a tailwind this year," says Corey Scholibo, co-founder and CMO of Repurpose. "Retailers have fully embraced the category trend and the solution we offer, and we have started getting a great deal of our business from inbound requests."

"When the plastic straw bans went into effect this summer, we launched our new compostable straws and saw unprecedented, exponential growth," says Jordan Silverman, Repurpose COO and partner. "It is going to be another great year for growth, and we are so thrilled to be recognized."
