    THE PROBLEM

    The consumption of non-renewable resources for single use bottles and plastic packaging generates large volumes of waste, and contributes to ocean plastic pollution.

     

    THE SOLUTION

    Notpla is an edible pakaging. It’s a spherical packaging made from one of nature’s most renewable resource, brown seaweed. Growing up to 1m per day, it doesn’t compete with food crops, doesn’t need fresh water or fertilizer and actively contributes to de-acidifying our oceans.

    This waste-free alternative to plastic bottles and cups is made from a proprietary material that is cheaper than plastic and that which can encapsulate any beverage including water, soft drinks, spirits and cosmetics.

    Notpla provides the convenience of plastic packaging while limiting the environmental impact.

     

    COMPETING SOLUTIONS

    Plant based packaging is being researched and developed by other organizations, however commercialization and take-up of this technology is at a relatively early stage.
