Eco Smart® by Federal Package® is an earth-conscience sustainability solution for the global personal care market that is fully FDA compliant and made in the USA. This proprietary technology enables our plastic lip balm, deodorant, sunscreen, or other containers to break down in biologically active environments while providing the same form, fit, function, design, or color options.
Our containers can be made with PCR, PIR or Bio-Resins. They are fully recyclable, but when they are tossed into a biologically active landfill they also break down, unlike normal plastics. Eco Smart does not contain starch, heavy metals, and other fillers that can produce microplastics which have been known to contaminate soil and water. The biomass remaining after complete biodegradation is no longer a polymer, which shows up as humas (rich soil), methane, which can be converted to energy, and carbon dioxide.
ASTM D5511 (municipal landfill) and ASTM D6691 (marine) test show biodegradation beginning in days and continues leading to significant bio-assimilation, shortening the time span the plastic occupies in a landfill from hundreds of years to several years.
Most companies that make or use plastic products share our environmental concerns about the production and disposal of plastic. Everyone is looking for a solution above and beyond just recycling, since less than 9% of plastics in the US are recycled every year. Tackling the root causes is required, a transition towards a circular economy for plastic, where plastic never becomes pollution.
Our containers maintain the benefits of traditional plastics and reduces a company’s environmental footprint. We have a practical, cost-effective, and easy-to-use solution for brand owners to provide consumers biodegradable plastic products.
Eco Smart® is your brand, your product, only better!
