Best of the Best Designers Speak® 2023 - AKL3 - Video - No Trace Waste
Arron Judson, Oliver Sealy - No Trace Waste
As the world continues to hurtle toward ecological disaster, consumers are taking stock of the waste they make and demanding less single-use plastics. A prime example of this is the 300 million disposable coffee cups used in New Zealand each year. Until recently, all of these cups have contained a plastic lining making them difficult to compost and impossible to recycle. As a result, it is estimated that 97.5 percent of coffee cups in New Zealand end up in landfills, or worse, as litter releasing microplastics into our environment.
No Trace Waste is packaging designed to disappear. We are pioneering truly home compostable solutions that use a waterbased dispersion coating. They look, feel and act just like a regular disposable cup but will break down naturally in almost any environment.
