A NEW WAVE OF SUSTAINABILITY

Almost 300 million tons of plastic is being produced every year. A lot of that plastic is necessary to make useful things that last. But all too often, the plastic we use ends up in the wrong place.

Right now, our oceans are filling up with plastic that degrade into smaller and smaller pieces of microplastics. If nothing changes, by 2050 there will be more plastic waste in our oceans than fish.

Our oceans need a new wave of sustainable solutions. And – just as it’s always been – that change is being driven by people.

SUSTAINABLE BY DESIGN

When Suvi Haimi and Laura Kyllönen looked around their bathrooms, they both saw the same thing: a problem. Aware of the ever-growing amounts of single-use plastic that fills our lives and seas, they set out to find a solution.

As biochemists specializing in biomaterials, Suvi and Laura came up with a natural, sustainable and beautiful alternative to plastic.

Sulapac® is a biodegradable and microplastic-free material made entirely from renewable sources and FSC-certified wood. Plastic manufacturers can use the material with their existing machinery.
