The Story

Award-winning industrial designers and LOLIWARE co-founders Chelsea Briganti and Leigh Ann Tucker combined their concern for the environment and passion for social innovation to invent a new category of sustainable materials that they have coined, biodegr(edible). LOLIWARE launched with the world’s first biodegr(edible) cup in March 2015. The company’s mission is to transform the tableware and packaging industries by creating products that are non-toxic, fun, and delicious.

What began as a food design competition in 2010 quickly grew into a high-demand business attracting global attention from the media, major brands, and consumers in 40 countries across 6 continents. Most recently, on October 2, 2015, LOLIWARE appeared on ABC’s Emmy Award-winning television show Shark Tank and successfully raised capital from Mark Cuban.

“Every year, Americans throw away 25 billion plastic cups that end up in landfills, never to decompose. We wanted to find a solution,” says Briganti and Tucker.
