We are on a mission to make packaging disappear by pioneering the use of seaweed as an alternative to single-use plastic.
At Notpla, we develop product lines that degrade naturally and solve the plastic problem. Our products are:
- Made from seaweed and plants
- Easily compostable at home
- Completely sustainable
Contrary to bioplastics, our material is 100% home-composting, naturally biodegradable in 4-6 weeks and doesn’t require any industrial composting processes. The material has the same end-of-life as a fruit peel.
Seaweed is one of the most sustainable material on the planet. Locally sourced from environmentally conscious suppliers, it grows fast, up to one meter a day, and doesn’t compete with food crops for land.
Seaweed participates in restoring marine ecosystems, sequesters CO2 and helps deacidify the ocean.
The end of life
PLA and other bioplastics require specific recycling pathways and specialised industrial composting equipment to degrade. It takes less than six weeks for our packaging to completely decompose in a home compostable environment.
