The ECLIPSE™ Straw Delivers on All Fronts

While plastic straws have emerged as a symbol for the global plastic crisis, many substitutes come with their own set of health, performance and environmental impacts.

We all know the story. Plastic straws have emerged as a symbol for the global plastic crisis, being used for only minutes, but lasting in the environment for generations. Companies big and small are seeking eco-friendly alternatives to accommodate the strong societal attitudes toward plastic and the environment.

While the problem is real, many plastic substitutes come with their own set of health, performance and environmental impacts. Plant-based bioplastics are tricky because they require an unacceptable amount of natural resources and won't break down when composted incorrectly. Reusable straws are difficult to keep clean and are significantly more expensive. Paper straws have a greater carbon footprint throughout the manufacturing process (not to mention that delightful feeling of soggy cardboard in your mouth to accompany your favorite beverage).

Solution: the Smart Plastic ECLIPSE™ Straw.

Satisfying all of the quality requirements for hot, cold, foamy and frozen beverages while meeting eco-friendly expectations, the ECLIPSE™ Straw is up to the challenge. Made with our proven ECLIPSE™ bio-assimilation additive, the straw will biodegrade in both marine and terrestrial environments, resulting in nothing more than CO2, water and biomass. And like all plastics produced with ECLIPSE™, it is ASTM 5526 and 6954 certified, FDA approved and 100% recyclable.

We no longer need to compromise to accommodate health, performance and the environment. The ECLIPSE™ Straw delivers on all fronts.

How Lego Perfected the Recycled Plastic Brick
wired.com

Back in 2015, kids' toys conglomerate Lego announced it would be investing a large sum into a Sustainable Materials Center. Six years later and after testing over 250 PET materials, Lego has confirmed a suitable PET plastic alternative produced from discarded bottles. This discovery, made by a team of 150, is the first brick made from a recycled material that meets most of Lego’s requirements for its standard ABS bricks.

A plastic straw's biggest environmental  impact is its end-of-life disposal... but looking at its lifecycle as a whole, they are less harmful than popular alternatives that have sprung up in recent years.

Plant-Based, Sustainable, Scalable “Spider Silk” Provides Plastic Alternative

Scientists recreate "spider silk" as a scalable plastic alternative

The strongest material on the planet, spider silk, is the inspiration behind a new plant-based plastic alternative, removing the challenges that come with the micro and nano structures of traditional plant-based plastic. This new, energy efficient method mimics spider silk on a molecular level and will result in a plastic-like free-standing film that can be composted at home.

Companies enabling supply chains with sustainable pallets

End consumers are demanding more transparency when it comes to sustainability measures taken by large-scale organizations. To keep up with this demand and to support sustainable change in supply chains, companies like ORBIS, Litco International and PECO Pallets are implementing circular economy tactics when it comes to creating and recycling pallets.
