TIPA, a global leader in compostable packaging solutions for fashion and food, announced today that its fully compostable and recyclable packaging tray line made from rice waste achieved Cradle to Cradle Certified® Silver, which evaluates and recognizes products for their environmental and social impacts.

The Cradle to Cradle Certified standard is the premier multi-attribute guideline adopted worldwide by designers, brands, and manufacturers across various industries. It guides the design and production of products to foster a future that is healthy, equitable, and sustainable. All materials endorsed by Cradle to Cradle must derive from nature.

TIPA’s trays offer an eco-friendly alternative to plastic packaging or boxes, providing durability and versatility to package a range of products, including fresh produce, baked goods, and hot foods.

The trays are made from natural rice by-products, known as paddy straw, typically burned for disposal, contributing to air pollution. TIPA repurposes this bio-waste into durable, sustainable packaging that fully decomposes into compost after disposal, akin to a substance found in nature. Their unique pulp composition allows for disposal in home compost bins and recycling bins alongside paper waste.

TIPA recently introduced the paddy straw trays through expanded production capabilities post its acquisition of Bio4Pack. Their market launch coincided with increasing bans on polystyrene takeaway containers, notably in the United Kingdom.

“Achieving this certification underscores our unwavering dedication to providing circular packaging alternatives and signifies the recognition of our efforts by globally recognized entities,” said Daphna Nissenbaum, TIPA’s CEO and Co-Founder.

The trays are GM-free, bio-based, offer an extended shelf life, and are available in various sizes and shapes in the UK, Europe, USA, and Australia.
