Simply made from plants. Transforming disposable packaging into an industry beyond oil.
Made from plants
We are living in the future. The practical use of waste products, the ability to isolate starch molecules, and sustainable agriculture have transformed disposable food packaging into an industry beyond oil. Everything we make at decent packaging we can unmake; everything is simply made from plants. From production to disposal, plant products are kind to the environment; they fit in with the circle of natural life. Oil based plastic products are the opposite. Sourcing oil is dangerous - oil spills, super toxic refineries, and a long history of unethical business practice afflicts the fossil fuel industry. Globally, packaging needs to be better, and our contribution is making packaging from plants.
"The essential concept at the heart of Innocent Packaging is to ensure we can unmake everything we make."
FSC grown or Recycled Paper
Paper is fantastic, but not all trees are grown equal! The Forest Stewardship Council ensures forests are responsibly grown, leaving positive environmental and social impacts. Innocent only uses FSC or recycled paper, this paper can then be recycled again and again or composted too.
Wheatstraw and Bagasse
Officially the waste products from wheat and sugarcane production, the result is a diverse and easily malleable plant material that we can mould into loads of fantastic products. Using only heat and water in production, these materials are super sustainable, toxin free and able to be easily composted after use.
