We believe in PlantPaper
The Danish family owned investment company Karsten Ree Holding is a very active investor in PlantPaper. Karsten Ree Holding has specialized in fast growing and sustainable projects and PlantPaper fits perfectly into the portfolio.
100 % certified eco-friendliness
The environmental and biodegradable advantages of PlantPaper is not just a postulate. We have developed PlantPaper in order to meet the most exacting demands and certificates on the market.
Therefore, PlantPaper is a 100 % glueless, compostable and fossil oil-free product.
Patented in 48 countries
In all modesty, we see PlantPaper as a market changer. Our paper is based on a newly developed formula of 100 % biodegradable and fossil oil-free components, all made of renewable resources. It can be formed into paper pots without the use of glue.
Partnership with Modiform
At PlantPaper we like partnering. And we really like our partnership with Modiform, the European market-leading producer of propagation trays and packaging. It has resulted in a series of trays developed especially for our new biodegradable and eco-friendly paper pot system. Together with Modiform, we will bring PlantPaper to the rest of the world.
Our cooperation is 100 % free and open. You can buy our paper pot paper through Modiform or directly from us. It does not make a difference.
From Ellepot to PlantPaper
The life of Merethe Ellegaard is closely connected to paper pots. Her father invented and developed the well-known Ellepot System. Merethe was an active part of Ellegaard for many years as co-owner, vice president and Head of Marketing but she wanted to give dealers and consumers a 100 % biodegradable and compostable alternative for propagation. Therefore, she invented PlantPaper.
To get it fine-tuned and tested, Merethe invited Carsten Storgaard, former Head of Service and Sales Manager in Ellegaard, to join the company. The goal is clear: They want to keep things flexible and free – in favour of both PlantPaper, dealers and customers.
