Enabled with our patent-pending ECLIPSE™ technology and made from 100% recyclable material, our zippers are purposefully designed for the circular economy. If this product evades the recycling system following its tailor-made guaranteed functional life span, it will completely bio-assimilate in marine, terrestrial and landfill environments within 6–42 months.

Problem

Zippers typically can’t be recycled

Traditionally, press-to-close zippers need to be removed from packaging so the plastic packaging can be recycled. This is a result of multiple types of plastic being used for both the packaging and the closing apparteous, a.k.a. the zipper, making it difficult to recycle and therefore unacceptable to most recycling centers. Press-to-close zippers have become a staple in the packaging industry and are an important way to preserve foods, pet food, dairy products, coffee, or to store cooked foods at home. But they’re typically unrecycable because of their material makeup.
