About us - Cyclups

About us

It all started with a carefree six-month backpack trip of sun and diving in Asia and Oceania. We started in the Philippines, and we came back to the Netherlands with an ambition and vision to co-create a plastic-free world.

The rest is, as they say, history. Welcome to our quest.

Our Mission

Co-creating a plastic-free world, by offering a plant-based, compostable alternative.

Our Vision

We need to go back to nature. Not just in finding circular alternatives for plastic, also in terms of mindset and behaviour. We moved too far away from nature, and belief it’s something that happens outside of us. It’s not, it’s us, our behaviour and the environment we live in.

The beginning might be tricky, but once we’re used to this new way of living, it’s easy and way more awesome.

Nature is and remains the basis of our existence.

To continue to ignore that is an unforgivable mistake. We are nature. Climate change and loss of nature and ecosystems are inextricably linked. When we respect nature and use everything it gives us responsibly, we can be symbiotic.

So we upcycle residual flows into best flows, turn wheat into strong, flexible, compostable non-plastic.

That makes us happy and nature happy.

Our team

We can only do this with the perseverance and enthusiasm of the people who support the cause. Meet the Cycluppers in Europe and India. These are the people who put their shoulders to the wheel and are always committed to eliminate some extra plastic from the world. Soon, Australia and the Nordics will also join our mission to create a plastic-free world.

OUR Co-creating CLIENTS

The Ocean Clean-up


We pursue our mission but want to do more and extra. The faster we can create a clean and plastic-free world, the better it is, so we can leave a more beautiful world behind for generations to come. That’s also the reason why we have joined The Ocean Clean-Up and donate 2% of our turnover to this foundation.
