We're NZ's first and only packaging company to produce only plant-based packaging.
"Plastics production has increased twentyfold since 1964 yet just 5% of plastics are recycled effectively, while 40% end up in landfill and a third in fragile ecosystems such as the world’s oceans."
— The Guardian 2016
We're always looking for new uses for the natural plant materials and plant waste that already exist rather than relying on petrochemicals.
Our straw range is made from the abundant waste that comes from the production of wheat. The total process is toxic free. No bleach, chlorine or oil.
We go through 180,000,000 takeaway coffee cups in each year. You can imagine the impact that's having on little old Aotearoa. We only need one reason to act differently: our future. It's why we use plant-based PLA (Ingeo) to line our cups - using plant-based material reduces our production carbon emissions by 80%. 100% commercially compostable.

We are actively focused on keeping NZ clean and green.
We have committed to sponsoring Homegrown Waiheke and collaborate directly with them to test our products and educate our team/customers towards a waste-free New Zealand.
