Calling all ideas

63 pounds of plastic per person ends up in a landfill every year. Let’s change that.

We’re awarding up to $100,000 USD in Cobalt Credits to bring innovative solutions in sustainable consumer packaging to market. 

We all use single-use items. From grocery bags and our daily coffee cup to water bottles and paper towels. Up until this year, dependency on these items were on the decline and now with the pandemic – their use is at an all-time high. We know you have the brilliant ideas that can help solve this so we want to hear them.

Let’s turn your idea into a business that changes the consumer packaging world forever.
