    Food waste creates 3.3 billion tons of greenhouse gases, which equals 37 million cars driving on the road at the same time. 128 million tons of milk are thrown away every year globally. At the same time, fashion and packaging companies are searching for high-quality, affordable, and sustainable alternatives to replace plastic. Through our patent-pending technology, we created the world's first sustainable apparel line made from excess milk. We are also inventing the world's first biodegradable, non-toxic, durable, and edible food packaging film made from cheese whey waste.
