What is Lifepack?
Lifepack produces plates and other products made of natural fibers and seeds that can germinate and are 100% biodegradable. After use, Lifepack materials germinate into new plants that may be used for human consumption. Close to 70% of materials germinate after one week, thus contributing to the reduction of GHG emissions since we substitute polymer products such as plastic and foam.
