For a product that is over 95% air, packing peanuts create a lot of waste. They're made from styrofoam, which fills up approximately 30% of landfill space and hangs around for up to 500 years. Woamy wants to cut that post-use lifespan to just 15 minutes with its plant-based, edible, dissolvable packaging peanuts.
The product has been years in the making and the Finnish materials science company is now ready to disrupt the global fossil fuel foams industry. We can't say when Woamy will go global, but a readily scable production process certainly raises the odds of success.
