Excessive use of plastic disposables and wood which is believed to be the alternatives to plastics have contributed to global warming and micro-plastic pollution. With the right idea for human and nature, Marine Innovation has found the solution with sustainable material found in sea. It’s seaweed. This seaweed will help save our oceans from global environmental concerns. We have developed alternatives to single-use plastics and wood with eco-friendly and sustainable material for better environment. Our technology innovation is the driver of competitive success. We get the extract from seaweed and separate the byproduct from seaweed. Seaweed based products can be used as alternatives to wood and create waste-free alternatives. Unlike wood products which chemical processes are used, Marine Innovation has succeeded in making eco-friendly and non-chemical single-use products by using seaweed extract & byproduct. Marine Innovation has launched cost-effective, fully biodegradable seaweed-based products. Marine Innovation’s innovative and environmentally-safe material will make consumers feel better when they buy products that are sustainably produced and environmentally safe. When compared to other eco-friendly-based products, Marine Innovation's products are the most exciting innovations in plastic replacement. With low production cost, cost competitive is the advantage. Durability advantage is another value of the products. We want to reduce the accumulated plastics from human’s behavior with our seaweed-based products.
