Change Your Sustainability Footprint, Not Your Product

Available in deodorant, lip balm, sun stick, cosmetic, and other personal care product containers.

“Eco Smart differs from other degradable plastics, in that it does not contain starch, heavy metals, or other fillers that can produce microplastics which have been known to contaminate soil and water."

Eco Smart™ containers by Federal Package® are an earth-conscience solution for the global personal care market that is fully FDA compliant and made in the USA. The containers are made with a proprietary organic additive that helps the plastic start to break down in days, not decades, when disposed in a biologically active landfill.

Eco Smart is a direct upgrade to the existing line of world-class containers produced by Federal Package with no change in form, fit, function, design or color options. They have the same physical properties and strength as those manufactured without this additive, performing the same as their intended applications and usage conditions. These attributes will last until the product is discarded into a biologically active landfill.

“Eco Smart differs from other degradable plastics, in that it does not contain starch, heavy metals, or other fillers that can produce microplastics which have been known to contaminate soil and water,” said Steve Dakolios, President of Federal Package. “The resulting biomass remaining after complete biodegradation is no longer a polymer. The scientific term for this residual is commonly referred to as biomass, humus, or compost.”

The Eco Smart additive encourages microbes to penetrate the container and break down the chemical bonds of the plastic, accelerating the break down in biologically active landfills, marine or other environments. This process has been tested to ASTM D5511 (municipal landfill) and ASTM D6691 (marine) protocols and have shown excellent biodegradation rates. Eco Smart enhances the biodegradation of plastic into humus (rich soil), carbon dioxide, and methane, that can be converted to renewable energy.
