We are a team of Aucklanders who are concerned about plastic pollution and we want to be more involved in reducing it. To kick things off, our first step is to provide a better alternative to plastic. We have this advanced technology that can process bamboo into products without plastic and chemical additives, our first collection consists of all-natural and fully compostable tableware.
New Natural, finding technologies that don't harm the world.
We chose bamboo because it is a highly renewable* and sustainable material, it matures 10 times faster than wood, easily replaceable, and grown without pesticides.
Through 20 years of experience in working with bamboo, we create the latest technology in processing it.
What we do in this process is grinding bamboo plants into powders, mixing it with plant starch slurry, which will then be ready for heat pressing under 200º Celsius (to ensure low carbon emission). After that, we use water to cool it down. Unlike the production of paper-based products, bamboo-based products use less water in the process.
* A renewable resource is a resource that can be used repeatedly and replaced naturally.
