At the core of Ffresho's product offering is the use of 100% natural materials derived from fallen leaves, stems, husks, barks, and other organic matter of plants and trees. These materials are predominantly upcycled from agricultural waste, reducing the burden on landfills and promoting a circular economy. What sets Ffresho apart is its commitment to empowering women by providing them with income-generating opportunities through the handmade production of these eco-friendly products. Moreover, the production process itself requires minimal energy consumption, further minimizing the environmental impact.
One of the standout features of Ffresho's plant-based disposables is their ability to decompose in regular backyard conditions within a relatively short period. Unlike traditional plastic packaging that persists in the environment for hundreds of years, Ffresho's products biodegrade within 90-120 days, without the need for specialized recycling facilities. This ensures that even if these products end up in nature, they will naturally break down and return to the earth, leaving behind no harmful residues.
Looking ahead, Ffresho aims to continue expanding its product range by incorporating materials such as seaweed, mushrooms, bio-cellulose, and other innovative extracts. By exploring these cutting-edge options, Ffresho stays at the forefront of sustainable packaging solutions, driving the development of eco-friendly alternatives in the market.
In addition to serving clients, Ffresho actively seeks partnerships with various Gemeente (municipalities) and social impact organizations to showcase practical circular economy projects in real-life conditions. By collaborating with these entities, Ffresho aims to demonstrate the feasibility and scalability of sustainable practices, ultimately inspiring wider adoption and creating a positive impact on a larger scale.
The Hague Tech (THT) community has played a vital role in the journey of Ffresho. Since its inception, THT has been a valuable resource and support system for the company, even before its relocation from India. THT has provided a solid foundation for building the business, fostering a vibrant community of like-minded and enthusiastic entrepreneurs. Through THT, Ffresho has been able to forge meaningful connections, access valuable knowledge and expertise, and establish partnerships. The company has a few B2B customers, has secured commitment from its first angel investor and is actively raising its first round of pre-seed funding. Today, Ffresho proudly considers THT not only a valuable partner but also a client, further strengthening its ties with the community.
