Single use plastic waste, and in particular food packaging is one of the biggest issues we have to deal with at the moment. The problem is that plastic is really effective at extending the shelf life of foods, and therefore reduces food waste, but we don’t effectively recycle all our plastic waste. Given that so much of this plastic waste ends up polluting the oceans, we decided to look to the ocean for a solution. Which led us to Kelp for our raw material.
