Avani Eco

Avani Eco has developed cassava starch bags, completely petroleum-free products which compost in 30 to 90 days or even dissolve in water within a few months. They’ve already partnered with large brands, including Heineken and Hyatt.

Next steps: Nearly 300m tons of plastic are produced annually, of which an estimated 50% is single-use. Bali recently banned single-use plastics, and new solutions will likely emerge worldwide.
