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.

Bact-Off Uses GARD™ to Protect Customers While Shopping

Enabled with SPTek GARD™, the Bact-Off cart handle provides retailers with a sustainable solution that supports a clean and healthy shopping experience.

The current coronavirus threat has exposed the need for retailers to seek out better ways to serve the health and well being of customers and their families. Shopping carts are identified as one of the most germ contaminated high-touch items, with a bacteria count of up to 73,000 colony forming units (CFU) per square inch and 361 times more bacteria than a bathroom door knob.

Enabled with SPTek GARD™, the Bact-Off cart handle protects customers against this cross-contamination risk with a proven efficacy of up to 99.999% in antimicrobial protection.

GARD™ is designed to defend.

Bact-Off, a global self-care consumer packaged goods company, in partnership with Smart Plastic Technologies, announced today the introduction of a simple, snap on plastic handle infused with the SPTek GARD™ antimicrobial additive. Given global health concerns and the current state of the retail economy, this product provides consumers and retailers with a solution that supports a clean and healthy in-store shopping experience.

A few key features of the Bact-Off shopping cart handle:

  • Safeguard customer health with antimicrobial protection
  • Enhance consumer confidence during in-store visits
  • Combat dangerous, illness causing germs
  • FDA approved and extensively tested
  • Sustainable, recyclable design
  • Made in the USA

Bact-Off’s design works with shopping carts currently in use at leading retail locations, defending against daily germ cross-contamination from the moment you enter the store.

SPTek GARD™ antimicrobial is added during the Bact-Off cart handle film production process, making it highly effective against MRSA, Salmonella, Listeria, E coli, and dozens of other dangerous organisms.
