Notpla Food Containers
Because convenience doesn't have to cost the world

We have carefully re-engineered the humble food container to eliminate waste and make the planet a healthier place, all while preserving the convenience we've become use to. Where conventional containers have petrol-based coatings that stick around forever, we've created a 100% natural seaweed coating. Once finished, the whole package can be composted and disappears without a trace—just like a fruit peel.

Explore our full range of foodservice solutions in the latest Notpla catalogue.

From extractive, to regenerative

From the forests below the sea comes our greatest ally in making this innovation: Seaweed grows quickly, and needs no freshwater, land or fertiliser. It captures carbon and makes the surrounding waters less acidic. Seaweed forests are biodiverse, and can even filter out pollution from human activities. The more we grow of it, the better the effect.

And the best part: worms, fungi and microbes love it. Instead of toxic waste, our containers become food for other living organisms.

Designed for impact at scale

While the beginning and end of our material's lifecycle are pristinely natural, it flows through industrial manufacturing and distribution at scale in between. The bigger this process gets, the more waste it takes out of the ecosystem. To date, we have replaced over 3.5 million units of plastic food containers, and every minute this number goes up.

All the features you need,
and a little extra for the Earth

Robust construction for safe transport
Leakproof coating, resistant to water and oil

The Shadow price of plastic
Plastic is one of the most popular, versatile and abundant materials today. The miracle of plastic is its ability to solve many design problems, from durability to hygiene or flexibility. However, its beneficial properties are also its flaws. As plastic has become the answer to every logistical problem, from construction to packaging, the industry has grown tenfold. Join us as we dive deeper into the shadowy waters, and examine the latest research on the hidden cost of plastic to our society, environment and economy.
The Truth About Dispersion Coating
You may have come across the terms ‘dispersion’, ‘aqueous’ or even ‘water-based’ coating. Are you aware of what these terms actually mean, what the process involves, and how it affects the environment when we dispose of these packaging items?
The Single-Use Plastic Ban explained
The Single-Use Plastic Ban in England, entering into force on the 1st of October 2023, prohibits single-use plastic items that are commonly littered and difficult to recycle.
It’s never just paper: why aqueous linings should raise alarm bells
At Notpla, we believe that businesses and their customers deserve total transparency when it comes to the sustainability claims made around packaging.
