Plastic pollution is one of the biggest ecological problems globally, in urgent need of a solution. Millions of tons are simply discarded, and currently “plastic accounts for 85 per cent of all marine litter”, according to the United Nations. In addition, producing plastic is a major contributor to global warming.
Julia Reisser and Michael Kingsbury, co-founders of ULUU, have developed a very promising plant-based alternative to plastic – a new material that’s similarly sturdy and lightweight but made of seaweed. It comes from nature and goes back to nature, because it is biodegradable.
Hear details from the ULUU founders in conversation with Christian Teichmann, Managing Director of Burda Principal Investments.
