      About the company

      Ecoware is India’s first sustainable packaging company, making commercially viable products for the food services and healthcare industries. It looks to adddress two significant problems – air and plastic pollution. The range of 30-plus single-use compostable products includes tableware, takeaway packaging and medical care receptacles. All products are 100 per cent natural and biodegradable, made from common agricultural residue that would otherwise be burnt in the open. This benefits consumers, particularly children who are more vulnerable to air pollution. Farmers also receive a monetary incentive not to burn, further protecting the environment.
