Since its inception, World Centric transformed from from a non-profit organization to a viable business -- but a social and environmental business. The mission still sames the same: the certified B Corporation creates bio-compostable products.

The list of products that Palo Alto, California-based World Centric offers is lengthy: straws, utensils, trays, take-out containers, bowls, plates, toothbrushes, paper towels, souffle cups and recycled paper -- just to name a few. Their plant-based toothbrushes have previously been featured on Social Business' sister site, Trend Hunter, which showed how they created a travel-specific product in order to takle a specific waste problem. They sell their products to a variety of high-traffic environments such as events, schools, cafeteras, hospitals and restaurants.
