Leaving no part of the agave behind

Our Mission

To upcycle plant by-products into better, biodegradable solutions for single-use plastic.

Our Story

Tequila production creates millions of tonnes of residual agave waste every year, negatively impacting the environment. To combat the issue, the Sustainable Agave Company upcycles the waste to make practical and sustainable biodegradable products. As an environmental leader, we are constantly searching for new and innovative plant-based processes to create our products. 

Our Goal

To upcycle more than 5,000,000 pounds of agave waste into exciting and practical biodegradable products.

Our Four Pillars of Sustainability

Water

Our water system is a closed circuit system, where only evaporated water is refilled. This ensures that no water is wasted.

Energy

Our production process is based on low energy consumption, which allows us to use renewable energies such as solar, wind and hydroelectric power.

Raw materials

Our products are made from the residual material of Tequila production. As a result, each unit   created is a sustainable, biodegradable and ecologically-friendly product. Simply put, we use materials that otherwise would be wasted. Further, we do not harvest any one-time use products for any of our production processes.

Our Team

We invest in our people. Besides paying above market wages to the members of our team, we also offer insurance to many of our workers. In addition, we provide our staff with continuous training and development opportunities - as they grow, so do we. We are currently pursuing the Fair Trade designation.
