Google Express will start shipping products in packaging made by Israel-based manufacturer TIPA Corp Ltd., announced the latter’s umbrella organization, Sustainable Suite Inc., on Monday.

TIPA, founded in 2010, produces and designs compostable, plastic-like bags and packaging that decompose under humid conditions within 180 days, TIPA vice president of marketing Merav Koren told Calcalist.

“TIPA’s packaging is as durable and impermeable as traditional plastic packaging and works for a range of products, such as fresh produce, frozen goods and apparel, according to company statements,” reported Calcalist. “Depending on the type of packaging and shape, the compostable plastic is made up of anywhere from 20-60% plant-based ingredients, such as non-genetically modified corn,” said Koren.
