Materials that make a difference
Natural fibrous sugar production residue (from sugarcane stalks). Our bagasse fibre plates are fully compostable. Bagasse is an outstanding example of efficient use of natural resources.
Cardboard has a low carbon footprint per kilogram. Most of our ecoecho cardboard products are also FSC-certified from responsible forestry, making it a very good environmental choice.
CPLA (Crystallised Polyactid Acid)
CPLA is compostable and made of 100% natural and renewable materials. Unlike many other BIO materials, it is heat resistant up to 80 degrees, making it an excellent material for cutlery.
PBS (Polybutylene succinate)
One of the most advanced biopolymers. It has properties like normal plastic, but it is compostable.
PLA (Polyactic Acid)
Compostable material made from cornstarch and very similar to polystyrene, so it is clear and presents fresh food in its best light.
Our serving platters and lids are made from rPET, which is actually recycled plastic water-bottles.
