Frusack – a compostable reusable shopping bag
Brief Description Frusack is a compostable reusable shopping bag for fruits and vegetables made of polylactic acid (PLA) available in two sizes and various colours. It aims to to replace single use plastic shopping bags, which are harmful to the environment as they end up in landfills and are not biodegradable.  Frusack started as a project of two students and subsequently grew into a successful startup. The two students crowdfunded the capital required to begin production, began to scale up and now is about to launch a dedicated e-shop. Frusack is also beneficial for socially vulnerable groups as a part of the production process is carried out by people in a social enterprise, creating jobs that may help to lessen socioeconomic stresses on vulnerable groups that drive negative health outcomes.
