This long lasting biodegradable food container is made from a plant based material called Polylactic Acid (PLA). Lactic Acid is completely natural and non toxic and our material does not contain any animal products, so it is vegetarian and vegan friendly.
If after years of useful life you want to compost any one of our eco friendly products, simply put it in an insulated compost bin, add some soil and it will biodegrade into natural organic material.
It’s nice and light and is also safe to drop – being shatterproof it will just bounce, not break.
Every one of these handmade food jars is unique with subtle variations from container to container. While we do use 3D printers extensively, there is a great deal of hands on design and fabrication in each container. We apply strict post-processing and quality control to each print, so small variations from one container to another can be appreciated as part of the overall unique design.
Enjoy plastic free living with this food safe, non toxic and BPA free food container - Love Our Planet, Live Plastic Free.

Fantastic Plant Plastic
🌱 Plant-Based: Our products are made out of polylactic acid (PLA), a plant-based bioplastic. The material is created by fermenting plant sugars - e.g. carrots - and processed into the raw material that we craft into our jars and lunchboxes. Micro-organisms - both fungi and bacteria - do the fermenting!
🐞 Biodegradable: If after years of useful life you want to compost any one of our products, simply put it in an insulated compost bin. Add a handful of soil to introduce the composting process and as it matures, turn it fortnightly to keep the naturally occurring microbes working.
👅 No Taste: Unlike many plastics, PLA is tasteless - making it excellent for holding high quality foods such as gourmet coffee and tea, or your lunch....
🐝 No Toxins: PLA does not contain or release any toxins and is completely bisphenol A (BPA) free.
💪Strong: Drop one of our products onto a stone floor and it’ll just bounce and be fine - the lid is likely to stay on too!
🌾 Foodsafe: Our containers are foodsafe for dry goods but avoid wet or damp foods such as cheese or butter.
☔️ Doesn’t take on water: The walls are 100% solid, so it doesn’t absorb water when washed. It won’t dissolve either!
❄️ Fine in Freezers and Fridges: Fantastic for storing food in fridges and freezers.
⏱ Long Lasting: Our products will give you years of service.
Here are our simple tips to look after them -
☂️ Dry Goods Only: Not guaranteed to be waterproof, so use it for dry goods, not liquids.
💧 Hand-wash Only: Hand-wash normally in your sink – it will be fine to about 50℃ and that’s about as hot as you can suffer when hand-washing, even with rubber gloves on.
🔥 No Ovens, No Microwaves, No Dishwashers: Avoid heating the container above 50℃ and keep away from direct heat.
