…our mission is to inspire others to make “Redefine Disposable” and protect our oceans, waterways, and marine life from harmful single-use plastic items...
There should be something that everyone is passionate about. That one thing that gives you a feeling being plugged in and being your authentic self. It gives you permission to be creative and to follow a purpose instead of a paycheck. A way to give back and be a part of something bigger.
Earth Supply Company is that passion for founder Brian Burrows and it started in his garage in 2018 and has been growing ever since.
Brian’s travel, life and beach trekking experience inspired him to focus on a simple everyday product that was in common use 50 years ago. Paper Straws. They could be used and discarded with a zero-effect on our pollution and could replace the single-use plastic straws that are overwhelming our oceans and waterways worldwide. This soon evolved into a full line of Eco-friendly to-go ware for restaurants and hotels.
He is constantly improving and working on the nuts and bolts of the operation, marketing and networking, and committed to building a small business with a purpose.
The commitment to recycling and reuse is evident once you step foot into Earth Supply’s new warehouse and business office. There is a solid commitment from our people and partners to limit and prohibit the use of poly’s and plastics wherever possible. Although there is a need to package the product safely there are still bins that are dedicated to recycling components at every turn and Brian has made it a lifestyle choice that has become a habit.
Brian Burrows engaged the public throughout 2019 with topics of awareness at the Historic Dallas Farmers Market, to further the mission of sustainability and has pledged to give a portion of the proceeds to one of several ocean defenders including Sea Shepherd or the USVI’s Friends of the Park program. During the 2019 season he also formed a coalition of food vendors and artisans to implement an onsite seasonal recycling program for visitors through a partnership with Recycle Revolution.
Brian actively eco-treks and volunteers his travel time to beach and coastal cleanup, local freshwater area cleanup activities and wildlife preservation volunteerism. Making good friends and meeting new family along the way.
The goal is to provide a product line for clients to choose a “purpose” brand, like Earth Supply, over large box supply chains that still currently sell poly/plastic across the spectrum of single-use to-go items. Earth Supply wants to offer its clients a path of innovative business procurement and highlights their commitment to smart environmental stewardship with "positive message" social media content.
Earth Supply is constantly working on new projects and engagements here in Dallas and is continuing to form new positive partnerships and working towards “Redefining Disposable".
Earth Supply Company was formed to sell eco-friendly to-go products to restaurants, caterers and conscientious consumers to address the negative impact caused by the consumption of single-use plastic items on the environment.
More importantly, we wanted to sell a product that can help us reduce and reverse the devastating impact their counterpart is having on our oceans, marine life and invariably our very own food supply.
We hope that by starting with environmentally responsible products and replacing single-use items we can create some "green" jobs and provide smart alternatives to plastic that will keep our planet healthy, our animals healthy and ourselves healthy!
