6 years ago, a video sparked a revolution around the environmental impacts of single-use plastic straws.

Since then, alternative straws have skyrocketed in popularity as a sustainable option. Let's take a look at a few.

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.

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'.

Recently, we broke down the difference between the universal symbol for recyclable material and the Resin Identification Code (RIC) - two very similar icons that mean two very different things!

Let's look at the 7 types of plastic and which ones can ACTUALLY be recycled?
