It has 2 years of shelf life without using preservatives, biodegradable, dissolve in warm water and 100% nutritious. It can also be custom for different taste, color, and brand logo. Not only this plastic is good for our earth, it’s also good for our body.

Through this edible bio-plastic, we also give positive impact for Indonesian seaweed farmers. It is fact that the biggest seaweed producer in Indonesia is actually the poorest island here. Many of seaweed farmers live in poverty and they children suffer from malnutrition and uneducated. Growing this business means increasing their livelihood and well-being.


The company uses seaweed because it does not create waste, it is biodegradable, it sucks up carbon dioxide while growing and is grown without fertilisers, water, or any other resources.Seaweed is also nutritious as it is high in fibre and vitamins.

By turning to locally-grown seaweed as a feedstock for biodegradable packaging, Evoware aims to boost the livelihoods of seaweed farmers while also working to reduce plastic waste in general, and to reduce ocean pollution in particular.
