The Mission

It is Humble Bee’s mission to replace existing, toxic and unsustainable plastics with superior, biologically-inspired materials to improve human health and that of the environment.

We want to take plastics pollution out of the realm of individual responsibility and replace the materials that are used by industry when creating consumer products.

Purpose and Profit

Humble Bee is creating a clear link between an environmental problem and a major market opportunity.

The SIN (Substitute it Now!) List is a globally used database of chemicals that are in the process of being banned or restricted due to the proven harm they cause. Humble Bee aims to alleviate the market pain of getting ahead of compliance, whilst maintaining product performance.

We know that helping humanity create sustainably is a multi-billion dollar opportunity and we are proud to be combining purpose with profit to the benefit of earth’s health, and that of its inhabitants.
