Notpla, a London-based startup company designed this seaweed-based replacement for single-use plastic packaging.
Founded in 2014 by designers Rodrigo Garcia Gonzalez and Pierre-Yves Paslier, the company’s products feature the company’s blockbuster product Ooho, an alternative to plastic made from seaweed that is edible and fully biodegradable in just 4-6 weeks without the need for industrial composting or special conditions. Later they raised money and developed among other products Notpla Film. This is one of their exciting new products to make flexible plastic packaging disappear. It is made from seaweed, plant and mineral extracts (no plastic or bioplastic!). It is perfect to package dry and oily contents such as pasta, olive oil, seasoning but also screws, body oils, dry shampoos and many more. After serving its function of protecting and containing a product, it can either be dissolved in water (with its contents), add extra flavour to your food or biodegrade naturally like a piece of fruit.
