See what others have to say about us!

We recently heard from Highlight Industries who completed a comparison test between traditional Stretch Film and SPTek ECLIPSE™ Stretch Film. See what they had to say!

We pride ourselves on developing products that have all the beneficial properties of plastic without the added environmental damage. It’s essential that our products live up to not only our own customers’ standards – but also to their customers’ standards as well.

We recently received the following testimonial from one of our customers and couldn't be more thrilled to hear it.

Highlight Industries:

“Highlight recently conducted comparative lab and load stability tests on two high-performance commercial stretch films, one made with Smart Plastic's SPTek ECLIPSE™ bio-assimilation technology and another without the additive. All tests performed yielded statistically equivalent results, with no noticeable difference in the excellent performance properties of the commercial film, with or without the ECLIPSE™ additive. These results are all the more impressive considering the ECLIPSE™ content will reportedly render the stretch film capable of complete bio-assimilation. This is a real win for green technology in the stretch film industry.”

Smart Plastic Technologies and Munchkin announce exclusive joint development partnership

The multi-year co-development and co-marketing agreement will be the first of its kind in the baby lifestyle market as demand for sustainable products reaches a new high.

CHICAGO, IL (January 26, 2022) - Aligned on the growing importance of environmentally responsible products in the baby and toddler market, Smart Plastic Technologies and Munchkin, Inc. announced today that they have signed an exclusive joint development agreement to create baby lifestyle products using Smart Plastic’s patent-pending ECLIPSE™ technology. This partnership will introduce revolutionary consumer goods to the baby and toddler market, which is estimated to be worth USD 25 billion by 2028.

"Plastic waste is a planetary and societal crisis. Munchkin grasps the gravity of our global environmental situation,” stated Jay Tapp, President & COO of Smart Plastic Technologies. “Our partnership with Munchkin, an influential and respected market and thought leader in semi-durable consumer goods, will directly result in a significant reduction of plastic waste and help reverse the damage that has been done to our environment.”
Steven Dunn, CEO & Founder of Munchkin, added “Through our partnership with Smart Plastic, Munchkin is committed to a development process that considers the complete use and lifecycle of our products from ideation to disposal. The goal of our partnership is to make as many Munchkin products as possible disappear after their useful life. With Smart Plastic’s SPTek ECLIPSE™ technology, our products can still be recycled, but if they find their way into landfills or waterways, they fully break down resulting in zero microplastics. Now is the time to act. Our planet, our children, and their children need us to make the change now.”

Approximately 91% of plastic is not recycled and ends up in our forests, oceans, and landfills for generations. Understanding the urgency to create a higher level of awareness and a ‘call to action,’ the partnership between Smart Plastic and Munchkin will lead the way for companies in every aspect of the supply chain. Each organization sees the need to adopt circular economic models for the betterment of our planet and will leverage the expertise on both sides to have the ultimate impact. This strategic partnership contributes to each company’s impactful approaches and commitments to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

Tim Murtaugh, CEO & Founder of Smart Plastic Technologies, also commented “Our strategic partnership with Munchkin represents another important step in Smart Plastic’s mission to join forces with leading companies on our journey to create a legacy of true global sustainability. We are delighted to have this opportunity to build a strong working relationship with a company that enjoys a global reputation for quality products and brilliant leadership. The adventure continues!”

Smart Plastic announces first-ever fully recyclable and compostable plastic straw

The SPTek ECLIPSE™ Straw is the only 100% recyclable plastic straw on the market that will conclusively bio-assimilate, resulting in zero microplastics.

Smart Plastic Technologies has launched the SPTek ECLIPSE™ Straw, an innovative product that will completely bio-assimilate in marine, terrestrial and all landfill environments within 12–42 months, resulting in zero microplastics. The straw, which meets all requirements for hot, cold, foamy and frozen beverages, is produced with SmartPlastic’s patent-pending SPTek ECLIPSE™ bio-assimilation technology. In a world’s first, this technology is backed by the C-13 carbon labelling and bio-assimilation test, conducted byLMPE, a respected eco-compatible polymeric materials laboratory located in Lucca, Italy.

"What’s unique about this product is its ability to truly and completely bio-assimilate in all environments - from industrial composting, to marine, terrestrial and anaerobic landfill environments - leaving behind zero microplastics.” stated Jay Tapp, President and COO, Smart Plastic.“In addition, the SPTek ECLIPSE™ Straw is made from 100% recyclable materials. This is where it differs from traditional compostable products, including paper straws, which cannot be recycled. This ensures that no matter where the straw falls at its end of life, it will not be detrimental to our planet or its inhabitants."

According to studies, 500 millions plastic straws are used every day throughout the United States alone. And while traditional plastic straws made from polypropylene (PP)are recyclable, they’re often not accepted at recycling centers because their size makes it difficult to properly sort them. Following a guaranteed lifespan of 18 months, the SPTek ECLIPSE™ enabled straws will completely bio-assimilate in as little as 12 months, resulting in nothing but C02, water and biomass.

Smart Plastic is the first company to pass the comprehensive C-13 carbon labelling and bio-assimilation test to determine the technology’s performance in all environments. The SPTek ECLIPSE™ straws are made up of 99% polypropylene (PP) and 1% SPTek ECLIPSE™.

Earlier in 2020 the company launched certified isolation gowns for healthcare heroes that also completely bio-assimilate, leaving behind zero microplastics.

Bio-Based Vs Biodegradable

With a ton of terms floating around in the sustainability space, it's totally understandable if you get confused from time to time!

Today, let's bring a little clarity to the difference between 'bio-based' and 'biodegradable'.

SEE ON...

We pride ourselves on developing products that have all the beneficial properties of plastic without the added environmental damage. It’s essential that our products live up to not only our own customers’ standards – but also to their customers’ standards as well.

We recently received the following testimonial from one of our customers and couldn't be more thrilled to hear it.

Highlight Industries:

“Highlight recently conducted comparative lab and load stability tests on two high-performance commercial stretch films, one made with Smart Plastic's SPTek ECLIPSE™ bio-assimilation technology and another without the additive. All tests performed yielded statistically equivalent results, with no noticeable difference in the excellent performance properties of the commercial film, with or without the ECLIPSE™ additive. These results are all the more impressive considering the ECLIPSE™ content will reportedly render the stretch film capable of complete bio-assimilation. This is a real win for green technology in the stretch film industry.”
