The offer in disposable utensils and packaging completely replaces plastic with about 90% finished, foamed limestone and about 10% high-quality, water-resistant biopolymer. The biopolymer covers and stores the limestone base of dishes or packaging.
With the development of the idea of moving towards reducing the use of expensive biopolymer.

Idea Title


Company / Organization Name

Design lab


Where are you / your team located?

Vinnitsa, Ukraine

How does this Idea redesign unrecyclable small format plastic items that often end up as waste?

After using the "LIMESTONE PLASTIK" cookware or packaging, it can be disposed of as organic waste. On the ground or in the water, organic waste and biopolymer are decomposed or processed by microorganisms into humus. It remains heavier than water limestone, which is compressed at the bottom or harmoniously enters the ground layer.

Which use cases does your Idea apply to?

Replacement of disposable, rigid, plastic dishes and packaging - plates, glasses, bottles, shampoo bottles or detergents, etc.

In what geographical context or area does your Idea plan to operate / solve?

All over the world, where non-organic plastic packaging and disposable utensils are used.

How do you envision scaling up your Idea?

Development of successful manufacturing technology. To ensure value and ease of use have succeeded in the market, even with the low help of environmental projects. Search for investors, production partners and market development.

At what stage of development is your Idea?

  • Research & Early Testing: You are exploring an idea, gathering inspiration and information needed to test it with real users.

Please describe how becoming a Top Idea and working with the Think Beyond Plastics Accelerator Program will help to accelerate your solution.

Maximize the use of innovation to reject harmful to nature and people waste. Use technology that nature has been using for millions of years. Implement this method to eliminate these harmful wastes.

Please describe from where your Idea emerged

The idea arose as a result of brainstorming in a university group and in a team design lab
