Congratulations to Notpla, 2022 Finalist for The Earthshot Prize, a “Nobel-like prize for the environment” founded by Prince William and The Royal Foundation in 2020. The Earthshot Prize is a global environmental prize to discover, accelerate, and scale ground-breaking solutions to repair and regenerate the planet. Inspired by President John F. Kennedy’s Moonshot which united millions of people around the goal of reaching the moon, The Earthshot Prize aims to catalyse an Earthshot challenge to urgently encourage and scale innovative solutions that can help put the world firmly on a trajectory towards a stable climate, where communities, oceans, and biodiversity thrive in harmony by 2030.
Each year, the organisation awards five of the most innovative solutions to the greatest environmental challenges facing our planet. The winners will receive £1 million prize money, a one-of-a-kind medal, and access to a global network of professional and technical support to scale their cutting-edge environmental solutions.
Notpla, the revolutionary sustainable packaging business and Cannes Lions Design Grand Prix winner, is one of three finalists for the “Building a waste-free world” Earthshot, recognising the outstanding contributions to build a world where nothing goes to waste, and where leftovers of one process become the raw materials of the next, just like they do in nature.
