disposable tableware made of kombucha.Close
Juna is a biodegradable disposable tableware made of SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast) using patented technology. My goal was to create the most eco-friendly disposable tableware, so then I chose SCOBY as a material.
Juna can be dried even using daylight without special drying outfits. It can be used for both cold and hot food, since it’s thermal-resistant. While producing kombucha drink, it grows in layers and the old ones are usually thrown away. I found out that these old layers can be used to produce Juna.
Juna Method of Making is patented in Russia from July, 28th, 2020.
Juna × Symbiotica
I teamed up with Symbiotica, one of the most popular kombucha brands in Russia, to use their SCOBY layers for Juna production.
I was invited to read my lecture «X‑Materials r why everything can’t be reusable» describing the profits of Juna
