TIPA® displaces conventional flexible plastic with fully compostable packaging such that plastic will no longer linger in landfills for hundreds of years, but will biodegrade within months in a sustainable end-of-life process.

TIPA® solutions were designed with the goal of achieving a circular economy through a true recycling process – composting. Since its inception in 2010 by co-founder and CEO Daphna Nissenbaum, TIPA® has developed a vast portfolio of products based on innovative technology and backed by a strong IP. TIPA® works closely with businesses of all types to design and provide packaging ideal for their specific application, ranging from fresh produce and snacks to magazines and fashion apparel. TIPA® solutions are built to fit existing machinery and chain of supply systems, and operates on a global scale with compostable polymer technology that is applicable worldwide.

An estimated 8.3 billion tons of virgin plastic have been produced in the world until now, nearly 70% of which has been used only once before being discarded into landfills and open ecosystems. Waste from flexible plastic packaging has become an epidemic, littering our oceans and forests with microplastics, and polluting our air and bodies through incineration and ingestion. TIPA® is
