A revolutionary start for a revolutionary company. An accidental invention of the University of Amsterdam formed the basis on which Plantics owes its origin. Plantics develops new, recyclable, and 100% plant based materials. Our mission is to provide gamechanging material solutions that help to solve the world’s plastic and CO2 problems. In close collaboration with partners, these materials are used to develop high quality, circular and CO2 negative products for a variety of applications.
We are proud on the very first products, including e.g. the Hemp Chair Collection which was developed together with Vepa – The Furniture Factory.
You can change the world, just by sitting!
We aim to offer more products soon.
At this moment, the webshop only allows payments from the Netherlands. If you like to acquire products in other countries, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We live in a plastic world. Think about how many plastic objects you use in a day. Virtually everything is made from plastic; from your toothbrush to your shopping bags. Nearly everything that is sold today, is packaged in plastic. Plastic is everywhere, and 98% of all this plastic is made using oil or gas.
Not only is plastic everywhere, it is here to stay. Every single piece of plastic that you have ever used is likely to still be somewhere on this planet! Most plastics easily take hundreds of years to degrade. They often are unsafe, end up in a landfill (abroad) or are incinerated; both heavily taxing on our planet.
Yet, alternatives to conventional petrochemical-based plastics hardly see application. Bio-materials comprise less than two percent of the annual nearly 400-million-ton global plastic production.
Plantics aims to be a game-change solution for the global plastic problems and a safe enabler of CO2 emission reduction.
