Wilsonville-based Trellis Earth is bringing production and jobs back to the U.S. from China.

Trellis Earth makes sustainable green pet pick-up products along with cutlery, cups, plates, bowls and food trays. They are an alternative to styrofoam.  The material is made from corn starch and bio resins. It's recyclable and bio-degradable. 
For six years Trellis Earth has used a factory in China to make its products. That's about to change. 
The company is now looking at sites in the Portland Metro area where it will manufacture the raw material and its products.

From what I could see during the biz report on TV News, was it looked as their workers are likely imported from South of our border.
