TP Green is headquartered in Shuwaikh Industrial, Kuwait.
All packaging we offer are 100% plant-based and are certified biodegradable & compostable.
PLA or polylactic acid is a vegetable-based plastic material, which commonly uses cornstarch as a raw material. Unlike conventional plastic, PLA is fully biodegradable and compostable where accepted.
Besides reducing waste that otherwise ends up in landfills, the compost resulting from the composting process is used as a soil fertilizer to help grow healthy plants. Waste is turned into useful resources, helping businesses and people reduce their environmental impact and join the circular economy.
If you are a business and wish to order wholesale quantities, please send your contact info along with your inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our sales team will contact you shortly to provide you with further information.
All global news and regional visions suggest that some non-biodegradable materials will be replaced in production processes with biodegradable options such as PLA, sugarcane, cork, etc.
In case of customization, our partner brands use vegetable and water-based inks that have a great print finish. Inks used are food-safe and do not affect the biodegradable and compostable properties of the packaging.
Do not store TP Green packaging near heat – for example not in direct sunlight or near an oven or radiator. TP Green is best stored at temperatures not more than 40°C.
Where there is no access to industrial composting facilities, used TP Green packaging should be put in general waste. TP Green takeaway packaging is made from plants using renewable, lower carbon, recycled or reclaimed materials, and these sustainability benefits still apply no matter what happens to them after use.
General waste goes to either incineration or landfill. If TP Green packaging is incinerated, energy is produced. Incineration studies on compostable packaging show that their PLA bio plastic produces more heat than newspaper, wood or food waste; also that it produces no volatile gases and leaves little residue. Some in the waste sector prefer plant-based materials over conventional plastics as they give off fewer toxic gases.
In landfill, studies have shown that compostable packaging is inert and does not give off methane.
Please do not litter – compostable packaging is not expected to break down when discarded in the environment, and is not a solution to marine pollution.
Porcelain gets its sustainability from the fact that it’s durable, and can handle a lot of wear and tear. This is all thanks to it being fired at a higher temperature. It’s why we find porcelain in a lot of high maintenance areas: tile, flooring, and bathtubs—to name just a few.
The majority of the porcelain tableware pieces produced by Cookplay are hand-made due to the elaborative designs of the designer herself, Ana Roquero. Glazed pieces are certified food-safe and the designer makes sure the labor conditions in the factories are beyond satisfactory. On another note, Cookplay collaborates with chefs from all over the world to support women, and is a frequent contributor to solidarity projects.

Biodegradable waste can be used for composting or a resource for heat, electricity and fuel by means of incineration or anaerobic digestion. Biodegradable is also better because recent news have brought to light that products that claim ‘recyclable’ are not actually being recycled.
Most of our packaging can be customized in the case of big wholesale quantities. For customization inquiries, kindly send your contact inquiry to email@example.com and our sales team will get in contact with you shortly.
Packaging that is made from paper uses sustainably sourced paper and cardboard, using recycled content where it is possible.
We would be happy to say that some of our PLA range does contain plasticizers to prevent the material from being too brittle and breaking.
These products, once formed, are all tested to the independent EN13432 standard which does ensure that the materials will break down in under 12 weeks in industrial composting standards and that no residue that would be harmful to the environment would remain.
Generally speaking, Vegware and Cookplay packaging have a shelf life of up to one year.
We currently ship to Kuwait via our e-commerce platform. For regional orders, contact us firstname.lastname@example.org
Absolutely. Our partner brands Vegware & Cookplay won awards for their product quality and functionality.
Yes! There are environmental benefits for TP Green packaging on the production-side. The packaging we offer is made from plants using renewable, lower carbon, recycled or reclaimed materials.
The earth has finite resources. Disposables are used for such a short time, so it makes sense to switch to renewable materials, reserving conventional plastics for applications where they can’t be easily replaced. Lots of people enjoy using plant-based materials, knowing they are a simple way to reduce carbon and help them go green.
