Introducing the world's most sustainable plastic products

Join us at Pack Expo 2021 in Las Vegas from September 27-29 to see the power of our SPTek ECLIPSE™ products in person.

We've been working hard for years to develop products that meet market demands while remaining true to our sustainability mission, and we are excited to share a few of these products at Pack Expo 2021. Now's your chance to get up close and personal with these ingenious products! We will be exhibiting the SPTek ECLIPSE™ Stretch Film, Co-Ex Film and Pouch at our booth from September 27-29. Register today and visit us at booth N-16013 to learn all about our SPTek ECLIPSE™ enabled products.

ECLIPSE™ Stretch Film

The most sustainable stretch film in the world

Delivering the performance you expect from the highest quality stretch films on the market, our revolutionary SPTek ECLIPSE™ Stretch Film is changing the game. Our stretch film is 100% recyclable and will completely bio-assimilate in marine, terrestrial and landfill environments within 6–24 months, leaving behind zero microplastics.

ECLIPSE™ Co-Ex Films

Multi-purpose films that reduce environmental impact

Our truly innovative SPTek ECLIPSE™ co-ex films have been developed to meet today's packaging challenges head-on, making them a vital tool in sustainable flexible packaging design. Like all ECLIPSE™ enabled products, our co-ex films will completely bio-assimilate following their guaranteed lifespan if they evade the recycling system.

ECLIPSE™ Pouch

A sustainable pouch that's truly recyclable

The SPTek ECLIPSE™ Pouch delivers the quality and freshness that you expect from any premium barrier pouch. Unlike other multi-layer pouches on the market, the ECLIPSE™ Pouch is 100% recyclable and will completely bio-assimilate after its tailor-made guaranteed functional life, resulting in zero microplastics.

ECLIPSE™ Straw

A truly sustainable drinking straw

Satisfying all of the quality requirements for hot, cold, foamy and frozen drinks while reducing environmental impact, the SPTek ECLIPSE™ Straw performs in all beverages. Following guaranteed life, this product will completely bio-assimilate within 6-42 months if it evades the recycling system: a critical part of the solution to global plastic waste.

Our team is ready and excited to connect with you. See you at the show!

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.

Sustainability is the future of the business world

The global pandemic has shed a much-needed spotlight on sustainability within organizations and their supply chains, forcing difficult discussions about the role companies play in the future of our planet.

A study released in October 2020 found 81% of companies are more focused on sustainability today than they were three years ago. Another study released in July 2020 shows 79% of consumers are changing their purchase preferences based on the social responsibility, inclusiveness, or environmental impact shown by a brand.

Sustainability within an organization is no longer negotiable and greenwashing is no longer acceptable. We believe it's time for brands to start making a concerted effort to implement sustainable practices at all levels of the organization. Read more below.
