envoPAP’s journey began at the University at Southampton when it became apparent to its founder Kaushal Shah that the paper and packaging industry needed disruption.
How do they do that? From locally sourced agricultural waste from sugarcane and wheat straw fibres, that creates the fibres of their premium quality paper and packaging materials.
Each metric ton of envoPAP helps save 50 trees from being chopped down for paper and packaging production. Currently, they have saved over 800,000 trees since 2015. By 2030, envoPAP aims to save 10 million trees across the globe and also empower 1000+ people by providing job opportunities and donating profits towards sustainable development.

Materra was founded by Edward Brial, Edward Hill and John Bertolaso in 2018.
Cotton is the most widely used natural fibre in the fashion textile industry. Demand for cotton fibre is increasing and there are presently no sustainable ways to produce it at scale – a problem compounded by water scarcity which will directly affect ⅔ of the world’s population by 2025.
Materra is working towards a fashion industry with a net-positive impact, as well as transparency in understanding the true cost of things, both human and environmental. The company is developing farming technology to grow cotton in the most sustainable and transparent way possible.
