Packaging The Earth Can Live With
Ecologic is a hybrid paper packaging technology that leverages a strong fiber outer shell and a very thin inner plastic liner, resulting in containers that are up to 70% less plastic when compared to formats of the same size. The fiber outer shell, made of recycled cardboard and newspaper, provides structural stability and protection of the product inside. The inner liner, made of 80% recycled HDPE, keeps the product sanitary and clean. Together, the two pieces remain 100% recyclable (in their own streams) and help reduce consumer reliance on single-use plastics.
High Performance with Strong Fiber
Maximum Barrier with Minimal Plastic
- Made of up to 70% less plastic than rigid plastic bottles of the same size
- Recyclable, non-laminated, mono-polymer, #1 PET
- Produces low volume waste
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, less than 10% of plastic is actually recycled and the rest piles up in landfills and oceans. This is why Ecologic emphasizes reduction plastic material at the source.
On the other hand, around 90% of fiber-based paper products are recycled. Why not use paper, a renewable, compostable, and easily recyclable material?
Ecologic never fuses or binds materials together so that recyclability of hybrid paper bottles can be maximized. Traditional packaging, included that which is laminated, make recycling difficult, expensive, and sometimes impossible.
HOW IT'S MADE
Ecologic utilizes world class molded fiber technology to produce fiber shells sturdy enough to withstand supply chain.
Post-consumer reclaimed fiber are made into a slurry mix that is transferred to a forming station, which applies tremendous heat and pressure onto tooling cavities that form hybrid paper bottle outer shells.
Even though we are known as experts of recycled fiber, just as much effort has been put into innovation around the types of polymers and plastics used in the liners.
Ecologic uses custom equipment to product thin, lightweight, collapsible liners that act as the perfect partner to the modled fiber shells. The liner holds and safeguards the product, the most important job for any packaging, and is fully recyclable at end-of-life as #1 PET.
A critical step to producing an eco.bottle is assembly. Molded fiber shells and thin plastic liners are sent through a proprietary integration machine that locks the components together, forming a functional and sturdy container ready for filling and shipping.
Our eco.bottles have been rigorously performance tested to meet moisture resistance, top load, torque, and ISTA requirements.
