THE ALTERNATIVE TO ALTERNATIVES PLASTICS

Compostable Bioplastics Made from Cassava

The rise of eco-friendly alternatives to plastic and single used materials has been quite a ruse, although there is still some smoke and mirrors. We strongly believe we have the potential to be the answer to our world's waste problem.

OUR STORY

We are a social start-up that seeks to revalue cassava and uproot the single-use plastic trend in the world. We have found that nearly every single single-used plastic product can be replaced and transformed into biodegradable and compostable materials that long-term will have a positive impact on the environment. 

 

We want to work to take down single-use cutlery to replace them with compostable bioplastic products that aim to change plastic usage in the world.

 

Today, UpRoot is working with the Hult Prize Foundation and reached the Global Finals to be held at the United Nations where we will pitch our dream for a $1,000,000 prize.
