These spoons double as snacks after use. Now a startup from Hamburg is working on sustainable single-use packaging.
Key to their initiative: agricultural waste such as wheat straw, tomato stems, vine stocks or hemp residue.
All scraps are sourced locally, helping to promote climate neutrality. Using a patented chafing procedure, the waste is chopped into individual fibres.
These retain their cellulose, meaning most of the waste is utilised. The unique feature of the process is that fibres interlock with each other during the subsequent compression moulding.
There’s no need for a binding agent. A remarkable development.
The odourless packaging is suitable for food, plants, or even electronics and can be composted after use.
Would go well with this.
