Producing Eco-Packaging with TIPA

Producing Eco-Packaging with TIPA

Avishag Seligman Wednesday, 3 April 2019

TIPA develops and produces fully compostable flexible packaging using breakthrough technology. With clients including Stella McCartney and Mara Hoffman, they offer viable solutions for the replacement of conventional flexible plastic, emulating conventional plastic with a certified fully compostable end-of-life, undergoing the same degradation process as organic matter. They tackle the plastic issue head-on, with an active preventative solution to end conventional flexible plastic accumulation and pollution. For this live Q&A, we discuss how they develop packaging from start to finish and their top tips for a smooth, sustainable run.

In 2018, the war against plastic came to the forefront of mainstream media. While there is a long way to go, some advances have been made towards cutting down on single-use, non-biodegradable, non-recyclable plastic, and introducing sustainable alternatives. However, it can still be particularly difficult approaching this process - especially as a new or growing business.

Whether you're looking to make the switch from plastic to compostable packaging for your brand, not sure on the viability of it, or uncertain on the design process, TIPA will help you make the first steps.

We recommend Members watch the video, Introduction to Bioplastic in the Eco Packaging for Your Sustainable Brand masterclass, before watching this live Q&A.

  • Introduction To Why We Need To Be Using Ethical Fabrics

    with Charlie Bradley Ross

    This 3 minute introduction to the full Masterclass on Why We Need To Use Ethical Fabrics includes a roundup of the issues that conventional textiles cause.

    For me, Charlie Bradley Ross, working in a more sustainable way means combatting fast, disposable fashion. And if you're going to make a product that transcends seasons and will be cherished by your customer for years (if not decades) to come, then it needs to stand the test of time and do so in a way that does not harm the environment or the people who make them.
