Beco manufactures products such as kitchen towels and trash bags made from bamboo pulp and corn starch-derived polymers.

Basic Information

Aditya Ruia, Anuj Ruia, Akshay Varma, and Punit Batra started Beco in 2017 in Mumbai. The startup manufactures eco-friendly and cost-efficient products such as trash bags, kitchen towels, and tissue rolls that provide consumers with the flexibility that single-use items provide, but at the same time do not come at a cost to the environment. Initially Beco wanted to focus on tissue paper and garbage bags, but after consulting with its mentors, the company decided to use bamboo to produce kitchen towels, toilet rolls, and toothpicks as well. Beco uses Moso bamboo, which mainly grows in China as well as in Maharashtra and North East India. This type of bamboo can be used to make reusable bamboo cloth, which is super absorbent and 100-percent compostable. The bamboo kitchen towel can be washed and used up to 100 times, unlike a generic microfibre cloth, which is non-biodegradable. Having seen the damage that plastic packaging did to the environment, the company decided not to use plastic to package its products. Beco uses craft and recycled paper instead. See more
