What’s cool about Green Dot? We created the world’s first biodegradable elastomeric rubber, Terratek® Flex, and over the past decade we’ve developed a variety of other biocomposites and biodegradable resins to replace traditional plastics, including our line of rigid compostable plastics, Terratek® BD.

We use plant-based feedstocks, from materials produced here in Kansas to make compostable bioplastics that will biodegrade. Our products are a sustainable solution to our current plastic waste disaster and our manufacturing process has a positive impact on greenhouse gas emissions.

Located in the heart of the scenic Kansas Flint Hills, Green Dot’s mission to create a new generation of plastic has a global reach and supports a biobased economy.

“The Coolest Thing Made in Kansas competition is a fun way to spread the word about Green Dot’s innovative products made right here in Kansas, while also promoting manufacturing in Kansas as a whole,” Green Dot CEO Mark Remmert said. “We are proud to be part of the Kansas economy and look forward to learning more about other companies driving Kansas’ economic growth during the competition.”
