25 Aug Tipa: Bio-based plastics that’s Plastic-like flexible & fully compostable
CEO & Co-Founder: Daphna Nissenbaum
What do a banana peel and a Tipa Bio-Plastic pouch have in common? Wait for it! They both decompose in a compost pile. Compostable pro-plastic packaging from Tipa feels like plastic, looks like plastic and is plastic. There is just one difference: its end of life is fully compostable.
Bio-plastics have been around for more than 20 years; yet they haven’t delivered on the promise of bringing the same packaging usefulness as plastic and then returning 100% back to nature, with no harmful impact. Tipa’s technology is about making the promise of bio-plastics real, based on deep technology innovation and multiple patents.
Flexible plastic packaging used for food and beverage packaging makes up two-thirds of the world’s plastic waste. The volume of flexible packages is smaller, reducing the use of plastics, but most flexible packaging can’t be practically recycled. Tips solves the flexible plastic conundrum as their product is just as transparent, durable and impermeable as ordinary plastic packaging — but completely compostable. It works for dry, baked and frozen goods, as well as fruits and vegetables.
Why we love Tipa: The company’s products are certified for both home and industrial composting and also meet food contact regulation requirements in Europe and the US
