At Footprint, Swope and Chung seek to transform the grocery industry. Plastic has become so prevalent in food packaging that many companies fit it hard to switch to something more eco-friendly. Footprint uses materials like virgin newsprint and double-­lined kraft, alongside “patented food-safe chemistry” to produce nontoxic, compostable meat trays, shelf-stable cups, and oil-proof microwavable bowls that can stay frozen for 180 days.
