Bucks County Biscotti Green Initiative

While biscotti is our passion and livelihood, stewardship of our environment with a focus on the reduction of our carbon footprint take the highest priority at Bucks County Biscotti.

From the ground up, we built our bakery with a specific focus on alternative energy and designed all our packaging to be biodegradable, recyclable, and reusable.

Everyday we’re constantly working towards sustainability in the production and distribution of our biscotti.

Solar Panels

Solar Panel Array at the Bucks County Biscotti Bakery

In 2008 we installed a 38-panel solar array on the roof of our barn to power our bakery using 100% renewable energy. We're incredibly proud that as of June 2020, we've saved 6,040 kWh. That is the equivalent of:

  • 10,597 miles driven by the average passenger vehicle
  • 4,706 pounds of burned coal
  • Fully charging 544,629 iPhones
  • 1.5 tons of waste recycled 
  • Carbon sequestered by 5.6 acres of US forrest        

Biodegradable shipping peanuts

Biodegradable Emblem Signifying Bucks County Biscotti's Packing Peanuts

All the packing peanuts used in our biscotti shipment are 100% biodegradable made from natural, nontoxic corn starch sources. They dissolve in water and can be thrown into compost piles after a single use. In addition, biodegradable foam peanuts do not have an electrostatic charge, meaning they will not stick to your clothes. 

Recyclable and Reusable Materials

Recyclable and reusable biscotti box

Our shipping and packing boxes are all made from un-bleached, un-dyed, recyclable and reusable paper. Say that 5 times fast. This prevents the use of chemicals like chlorine that can hard on the environment, and decreases the amount of trash production for each shipment. A few examples of things we've seen stored in the boxes long after the biscotti are gone include legos, spare reading glasses, and injured baby birds being nursed back to health.        

Limited Waste With A Tasty Bonus

Bucks County Biscotti Honor Stand To Reduce Waste

Our biscotti honor stand is the perfect opportunity to please the local community with a tasty deal while reducing the quantity of perfectly good cookies that did not quite make retail standards. These 'noses, butts and breakers' that would have been otherwise discarded are bagged into ~1 Lb. bundles and sold for $5 at our Local Honor Stand open 24/7/365. You can click here to learn more. 

As long as our bakery is running, we will continue to operate with an environment consciousness that cares about the Earth as much we care about producing delicious biscotti for you to enjoy.
