Protecting the Environment by Eliminating Plastic

What’s Your Footprint?

Solutions that Create Change

NGOs are speaking and Footprint is listening. Which is why Footprint strives to produce the best alternative and sustainable packaging solutions on the market. We believe that packaging shouldn’t last hundreds of years but it should more closely match the life span of the product it’s protecting and it should protect products in a cleaner, smarter way. Our biodegradable, compostable and marine degradable solutions are creating a heathier environment for us all.

Plastics Become Micro-plastics

Plastic, when exposed to light, breaks apart into smaller and smaller pieces through a process called photodegradation. As this plastic breaks apart, they become micro-plastics. These plastics are mistaken by marine life and birds as food, and eventually enter our food chain, impacting animal and human health. Sadly, these micro-plastics are showing us that #PlasticKIlls.

55,000 - 10 Million - 100 Million

Why are these numbers important?​

  • By age 60, each person has created 55,000 pounds of plastic
  • Since <10% of plastics are recycled each year, that means each year another 10 Million tons of plastic enter our ocean
  • The ocean already has 100 Million tons of plastic in it
