Va. company supplying green products to equestrian games

RICHMOND—A Richmond company will be one of the major suppliers for this year’s World Equestrian Games in Lexington, Ky.

Green Duck produces compostable and biodegradable to-go plasticware expected to be used by 600,000 people who will be attending the games.

"We are very excited to be a part of this full-circle solution," said owner Jocelyn Tice. "This is a very high-profile event that is making efforts" to curtail waste and preserve natural resources. "The larger events are a representation of what should be going on, and this will help other events catch on."

Green Duck had plans to ship about 5,000 cases of product—about 3 million pieces of to-go ware—to Lexington. "Between the food waste and to-go packaging waste, the majority of it will be composted rather than go to a landfill," Tice said.
