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.

People behind Sulapac

We have innovated a fully biodegradable and microplastic-free material which has the benefits of plastic without the waste problem of it.

Suvi has a PhD in biomaterials and is the key person in fund raising and building a world-class team of passionate professionals.
