Greening plastics through biodegradability technology and new, naturally sourced materials

Greenhope is a social enterprise with the mission to help the world convert toward more sustainable consumption and production through technologies in sustainable plastics and agritechnology. Ecoplas, its patented cassava/tapioca-based degradable bioplastic, is sourced from farmer cooperatives across Indonesia who receive a ‘Fair for Life’ certified trade price for their work. Ecoplas has been used to make shopping bags, landfill covers, garbage bags, dog waste bags, packaging, and more. Oxium is a US-patented, oxo-biodegradable additive that speeds up the molecular and chemical degradation of plastic, making ordinary plastics degrade within two years into CO2, H2O, and biomass. Greenhope’s 100% organic product, Komposku, rejuvenates contaminated soil and brings back its natural fertility to ensure better and sustainable yields and income for farmers. Greenhope collaborates with various parties across governments, the private sector, and NGOs in ten countries around the world (and expanding rapidly) to deliver systemic changes for a better and more sustainable world.
