9.1B tons

That's how much plastic humanity has produced since the 1950s. From single-use packaging to synthetic clothing, we've become dependent on petrochemical-based materials. 

It’s time to outgrow plastic.TM 

We're on a mission to replace the use of plastics like polyurethane and polyester with plants. 

MIRUM® is a categorically new material: one that uses responsibly-sourced renewable resources instead of animal hides or oil.

We believe in a world where choosing beauty and scale doesn't have to mean compromising on sustainability.

Comprehensive Circularity

MIRUM® is endlessly recyclable. Cutting scraps, dead stocks, and worn-out products can be fed into new MIRUM® production or safely put into soil. Because MIRUM® is bio-neutral and contains no plastics any products that are not recycled will add nutrients—not plastic pollution—to the earth's ecosystems.
