Made from Nature to Return to Nature



Carapac is a sustainable, durable, home compostable plastic packaging alternative.

We examined the problem at hand and took to the sea to find a solution.

Plastic Problem


We are experiencing a global plastic dependence crisis.

Over 300 M tonnes of plastic are produced around the globe annually. About 1 garbage truck full is dumped in the ocean every minute. Scientists have found that the average human is ingesting 1.5 credit cards worth of plastic a year.

Even the most remote areas of the world are littered with microplastics. Animals, coral reefs, waterways and communities are suffering from this plastic pollution, causing long term effects on environmental and public health.

The world is screaming out for a better way. Carapac offers an innovative solution to the plastic problem and a way forward for the world of packaging.

Keep it Shrimple


Our team identified endless potential in crustacean shells, a food waste material base.

We take prawn, shrimp and crab shells after you are done eating your lovely seafood dish and repurpose the nutrient rich ‘waste’ into a sustainable plastic alternative that can be put into the ground after use.

Carapac Material


What’s great about crustaceans is the amount of benefits they add to sustainable packaging.

Carapac is a natural material embedded with antifungal and antibacterial properties that prevent mould or fungi growing on fresh foods. Our packaging actually extends product shelf life, keeping your veggies fresh for longer. Once done with the packaging, it doesn’t have to end up in the bin.

Remember those nutrients we mentioned earlier?

Breakthrough Breakdown


Carapac materials are designed to be put back into the earth once they have served their packaging purpose. Acting as a slow release nitrogen fertilizer, the packaging adds many nutrients back into the soil.  

You can plant Carapac Materials in your gardens or home compost bins. 

Your plants will love it.

Our material is also Ocean Friendly

Should our packaging end up in the ocean, it will simply dissolve. If swallowed by marine life, it will break down and pass harmlessly.
