About us

Reimagine, renew and regenerate are the certainty of a present time for all the futures that we can transform

We weren’t born due to necessity; we were born due to our belief that we can revolutionize both the way the planet and the way the plastic industry thinks. We have the power to educate the consumer and the market, so that society can also Reimagine, Renew and Regenerate the present, today for a better future, tomorrow.

Manifest 

The present transforms the future, this we already know.
But have you ever stopped to think how the future also transforms the present?

At ERT, we think about this every day.
We reimagine the future to act today. Now.

We believe the future is fertile.
Renewable. Never disposable.

We are here to launch a new era that not only sustains the future
but also regenerates all its possibilities.
On land, water, or air.
And inside of us.

We are a new generation of plastic.
Of bioplastic.
We believe in the power of earth.
So that the Earth can thrive.

We are a natural evolution.
We are a plastic that is a plant.
From beginning to end.

We studied, investigated, discovered, and developed a renewable,
biodegradable and compostable solution
to recreate the present and future of plastic.

Reduce, reuse, and recycle: The 3 Rs of circularity
are the path from a future to the present.
Reimagine, renew and regenerate
are the certainty of a present for all the futures that we can, together, transform.

 

We create valuable
and truly sustainable
solutions.

We started with a simple goal: to inspire the market about the importance of sustainability and revolutionize the plastic industry way of thinking.
