IN-LAND COFIBRE

The Challenge

DO WE HAVE SUSTAINABLE AND COST-EFFECTIVE SHOPPING BAGS IN THE MARKET ? Every year, Europeans generate 25 million tonnes of plastic waste, but less than 30% is collected for recycling. Across the world, plastics make up 85% of beach litter. And plastics are even reaching citizens' lungs and dinner tables, with microplastics in air, water and food having an unknown impact on their health (European commission plastic Europe 2018). The use of PLASTIC BAGS is not a small issue. Every year, nearly 100 billions of them are consumed in the EU, and the number was expected to grow to 111 billion by 2020, if we hadn't done anything about it. Plastic is catastrophic towards nature, yet makes up 70% of the waste that is found in European waters. Up to 70% of this waste consists of plastic bags (europeangreens).According to a recent study, average European uses 165 plastic bags per year. As plastic suffocates our lands and oceans, we need to find alternatives in order to protect ecosystems, wildlife, and ourselves.

The Solution

IN-LAND COFIBRE introducing 100% eco-friendly, cost-effective and biodegradable COCONUT FIBRE shopping bags. Also have novel production process to develop coconut fibre woven fabric. We want to utilize full potential of world’s largest coconut growing developing countries ( like India, Sri lanka, Indonesia, Philippines) raw material (coconut fiber) and combine with Netherland's (world’s fourth innovative country , Global innovation Index 2019) advanced technology to produce our desired eco-friendly product. COFIBRE: To solve the global plastic pollution while helping below poverty farmers in developing countries.
