If nothing changes, there will be more plastic waste than fish in our oceans by 2050. For that reason, Sulapac brings solutions to the global plastic waste problem with biodegradable packaging innovation. The company was founded in 2016 by Suvi Haimi and Laura Kyllonen and is located in Helsinki, Finland. 

Cosmetics and jewelry packaging manufactured by Supalic are already available for the consumers which responds to consumers’growing desire to find environmental-friendly products or packaging. ‘Cosmetic products are close to our hearts as we use them on a daily basis, and plastic is commonly used, easily available and of course very cheap packaging material’. said Suvi Haimi, CEO & co-founder of Sulapac.

When comparing to plastic packaging, Sulapac has completely unique wooden appearance and natural binders, cause it combines luxury, sustainability, and unlimited design possibilities. Recently, Sulapac has won many international awards such as the best green packaging solution at the Luxe Pack in Green Awards in Monaco 2017 and top-100 hottest startups in Europe by Wired UK 2018, etc.

Finnish start-up Sulapac welcomes Chanel as a new investor

Sulapac’s first cosmetics player is the French luxury house that invest into the Finnish start-up. It has previously secured significant funding from other investors include: Lifeline Ventures, Saara Kankaanrinta, as well as Business Finland. In summer July 2018, Sulapac received the Horizon 2020 SME instrument grant from the European Union.

In addition, Chanel is definitely one of the forerunners with the mission to save this world from the plastic waste. These investments will speed up the breaking through in other industries as well. Chanel also wants to invest in the latest sustainable material and technology innovation, it just became a big step closer to being achieved.  And a new round funding for Sulapac is planned for 2019.

Generally, it is totally good method for reducing waste from Sulapac’s products. That is all things I want to show you in this article- to protect our environment better.
