About Coastgrass:

Coastgrass is a startup that works with innovative sustainable packaging for the skincare industry.Coastgrass was founded by two engineers - Kristoffer & Malthe, who graduated from DTU a year ago and have been working full time on the startup since May 2020.

 

Despite being a freshly-baked startup, our product development stage is already fully funded, and we have seasoned Business Angels as investors. Besides, we have an agreement on a pilot project with a Danish skincare brand and are planning to onboard more brands until the end of 2021.

At Coastgrass, we have developed a sustainable replacement to crude oil-based packaging products.

Our material consists only of biobased and biodegradable materials which ensures sustainable yet beautiful packaging products. We help cosmetic brands meet their goals for sustainable products and provide transparent and traceable packaging products. We believe in using renewable natural resources to create climate-friendly solutions, so that we ensure a sustainable future.
