Gantri Plant Polymers

Materials we can feel good about

While traditional plastic may be cheap and convenient, its impact is anything but. When petroleum is processed into plastic, harmful emissions are released into the air, putting our environment and communities at risk. If we continue to produce traditional plastic as usual, its greenhouse gas emissions could reach 1.34 billion tons per year by 2030. That’s why we created Gantri Plant Polymers, a new generation of sustainable, plant-based materials that function like plastics without negative environmental impacts. You can feel safe that your Gantri light is beautiful, durable and safe - for you and our world.

Sourced from nature

As we leave plastic in the dust, Gantri works with our partners at ColorFabb to create our proprietary Gantri Plant Polymers. By sourcing non-GMO sugar cane from farms in Thailand, we are able to use materials that are safer and kinder to the environment.

Produces 75% less CO2 per kilo

Crops are sustainably regrown

No carcinogens during production

The process

01

Grinding

Raw crops are ground and transformed into simple sugar.

02

Fermentation

Simple sugar is fermented to produce lactic acid.

03

Polymerization

Lactic acid is dehydrated and converted into raw PLA.

04

Compounding

Additives are mixed in to create our Gantri Plant Polymers.

Engineered for living

Not only are our materials sustainable, we engineered Gantri Plant Polymers to meet our stringent requirements for durability, impact resistance and heat tolerance. Gantri lights are made to last.

Durable materials

Our polymers offer durability like petroleum-based plastic, sans toxicity.

Drop proof

Every Gantri product is tested for accidental knocks and drops.

Temperature resistant

Our opaque blend is 50% more temperature resistant than raw PLAs and safe to use even near electronics

Opaque

Our opaque blend polymer is finished with a premium water-based paint that’s beautifully smooth and soft to the touch.

Translucent

Our translucent blend is finished with a UV-protective coating and offers bespoke texture akin to a paper lantern.

Made for you

At Gantri, your light comes to life layer by layer, creating a one of a kind light, just for you. Similar to the sugar cane we source for our materials, our lights have unique, organic textures all of their own. One sustainable process, each one-of-a-kind.
