Matter-Why Matter
High performance products that are actually good for the planet.
When we set out to make a viable alternative to traditional and degradable plastic, we had two goals:
dirt and plates
Bringing valuable nutrients back to Earth.
Matter products are nontoxic and, if composted properly, return natural, plant-based nutrients back into the earth as they compost in 12 months or less, producing nutrient-rich soil.
The Differences that Matter
Comparing our products to the status quo.
1 year vs. Many
Matter products break down and enrich
the soil faster than most alternatives.
In some cases, up to 1,000 times faster.
Matter-Our Technology
Performance Matters
Matter's plant-based biopolymer and fiber products are high-performing replacements for traditional plastic. Our biopolymer bags are strong, durable, and resist tearing. And our fiber items are leak-resistant and microwave safe.
