Øjvind and the potato bags

PlantPaper was developed with a strong wish to raise the bar. A wish to care for the environment, and give dealers and consumers all over the world a 100 % natural and eco-friendly alternative. In short: To do things better.

Øjvind Ellegaard founded Ellegaard AS back in 1989. In 2005 he sold Ellegaard AS, but Øjvind stayed in business trying out new paper ideas. 

He experimented with an eco-friendly paper bag aimed at early germination of potatoes. The idea never took off but a seed was planted – a green seed!

Øjvind died in 2010 at the age of 76. After his death, his daughter Merethe invented PlantPaper inspired by her father’s ideas with the potato bags.  

Merethe developed a whole new formula based on different raw materials. 100 % natural and decomposable. PlantPaper was a reality
