Shellworks is creating a plastic free future by working with bacteria to produce materials that are truly compostable, aesthetic, performant and cost competitive.
At a glance
- Shellworks is creating truly compostable alternatives to plastic using bacteria.
- When you throw away a product made from Vivomer, our first material, bacteria which live in the soil and ocean see it as food and eat it. Requiring no additional infrastructure.
- We’re currently focused on delivering sustainable packaging solutions to the beauty and personal care industry where there are few alternatives to plastic.
- Shellworks engineering and material know-how allow us to redesign complex multi-material assemblies, that are currently unrecyclable, to be made from a single compostable material.
