Fairfield's 20th Earth Day Celebration

Earth Day is an important holiday here at Yumi, as it is a day to reflect on and positively impact the environment in which we live in.

We find it imperative to educate people about their impacts on the environment. At the same time, we offer solutions for making more eco-friendly and environmentally conscious decisions.

This was our second year attending Fairfield's Earth Day Celebration, and what a terrific celebration for their 20th anniversary!

Taste of Fairfield!

Rain did not hold anyone back from enjoying the most delicious food and drink the Fairfield area has to offer!

Taste of Fairfield featured over 35 local restaurants and the food was simply unbelievable. We were more than happy to supply all the vendors with our 100% natural compostable plates, bowls, and utensils for tasting!


Home to so many great restaurants and talented chefs, we are proud to support our local community.


We want to thank TownVibe and Fairfield Magazine for hosting such a great event.

Celebrating Fairfield’s dynamic food scene was a blast and we look forward to next year!


Yumi Donates Compostable Plates to Girl Scouts of Connecticut

Yumi Donates Compostable Plates to Girl Scouts of Connecticut

Yumi donated compostable plates to Girl Scouts of Connecticut's annual Camp CEO program. 

Learning about plastic and the damage it does to the environment is critical for today's youth. Girl Scouts of Connecticut learned what a difference it can make to our planet to use plant based materials found in our eco-products instead of petroleum based plastics.

We hope these budding future leaders will pass along the knowledge they gained and encourage others to join Yumi and help us save our planet!

Remember, Plants Not Plastic!

We buy it, we bury it, we burn it and then we ignore it. Does anyone think about what happens to all the trash we produce? We keep making things that do not break down. We have all heard these horrifying facts before, but with Jeremy Irons as our guide, we discover what happens to the billion or so tons of waste that goes unaccounted for each year. “The plastic bottle in your hand will feel as dangerous as a molotov cocktail” – NYT
