On today’s episode, Kunle is joined by Maxim Gelmann, Founder or Chief Stroodle of Stroodles Eco-Tableware, a company that produces sustainable, fun and edible tableware products.

What is more fun than straws, plates, cups and spoons that are edible? The idea of pasta straws and chocolate spoons was from Maxim’s love for fun and adventure and his advocacy for sustainability. As a big believer of serendipity and randomness and out-of-the-box things, he was able to build Stroodle within a few years and it has been steadily expanding.

As people get more and more educated about plastics and its effects to our nature, Stroodles gives people the option to start and maintain a sustainable life. Stroodles’ products caters kids and adults alike. While Stroodles is focused on EU and the UK market for now, the Chief Stroodle has its vision to expand over the US market.

It’s an insightful episode as you’d hear Kunle and Maxim talk more about the journey of Stroodles, its target markets, financing, Maxim’s vision for Stroodles and Stroodles’ advocacy for sustainability.
