Tangram has collaborated on numerous palm-fiber based sustainable packaging design projects with Earthcycle Packaging.

Moulded palm fiber pulp is a waste product, discarded when palm fruit is harvested for its oil. Tangram and Earthcycle have developed a variety of palm fiber solutions to replace traditional paper and plastic based packaging for companies in the fast-food, consumer products, and fresh produce industries. The resulting products are not only contributing to a sustainable palm oil industry in Malaysia, they are certified compostable and biodegradable making a truly cradle to cradle product.

The BetaCup Challenge was conceived to reduce the number of non-recyclable cups that are thrown away each year by envisioning a more sustainable alternative to the reusable coffee cup.
