However, she found out that the compostable plastics Sacred Wheel was using to serve food and beverages couldn’t be composted in Oakland and were instead being sent to the landfill. Jena reconsidered and realized that real dishes were the best option for Sacred Wheel. Jena reconsidered and realized that real dishes were the best option for Sacred Wheel. Her customers loved it, photos of her food looked better on Yelp, and she saved almost $4,000 after the payback period!
