The Ersatz Project

Replacing Plastic with Sustainable Alternatives


Who We Are

   The Ersatz Project is an initiative with a goal of reducing the amount of plastic pollution that destroys ecosystems worldwide, starting in Lavallette, New Jersey. With BioBeads, the Ersatz Project aims to share the beauty of bio-based plastics while helping fund other organizations with similar objectives.

   100% of proceeds and donations are used to assist other local and worldwide organizations that also share our mindset and are working to lessen the harmful effects of plastic waste. Click here if you are interested in donating or selling BioBeads at your business local to the Jersey Shore.
