Holly commented on Yuca "Plastic" Sachet

Hi Lauren Ito , thank you for your comment! Above, I posted a rough sketch to help give a better idea. I will continue to add sketches tomorrow.

The opportunities are endless for the Yuca Plastic. The next step we need to take is to collaborate with creative product designers to help us connect this material to an innovative plastic alternative.

This "plastic" works well with oil-based, viscous substances, but it doesn't work well with water-based liquids at the moment. We are open to collaboration!

Hi Kate Rushton 
Thank you for your comment and connection!

Brian Bauer , do you see a potential use for Yuca Plastic? Or do you see an adoption of the dispenser/reusable container model that you think can be applied to all the plastic-wrapped products in these tienditas? In regards to imported processed foods and products (that are seen in every tiendita here), how do you plan on incorporating them into the dispenser model?
Maybe we could collaborate in Nicaragua in the future.
