Information about our recycled, compostable and recyclable clam-shells, jars, push-tubes and bottles.
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, less than 10% of plastic is actually recycled and the rest piles up in landfills and oceans. This is why Ecologic emphasizes reduction plastic material at the source.
On the other hand, around 90% of fiber-based paper products are recycled. Why not use paper, a renewable, compostable, and easily recyclable material?
Plastic-Free Packaging made from Recycled Cardboard & 100% BioBasedNo bleach. No dyes. No glue
Plastic pollution is one of the most pressing environmental issues. There is widespread evidence that plastic is contaminating our waters, wildlife and negatively impacting human health. Plastic packaging is a large contributor to the global crisis and the search for plastic-free packaging has helped to push the demand for fiber-based packaging.
Recycling rates for plastic are very low. By comparison, the recovery rate for paper and cardboard packaging is quite good and the network to recover them for recycling is well developed. According to the EPA, the recycling rates for paper and paperboard grew from 17% in 1960 to 68% in 2018.
Molded pulp packaging is part of a strong closed loop system – pulp packaging is made from recycled fiber materials and can be easily recycled after its useful life with other paper and cardboard materials.
HI, I’M ECO.BOTTLE
I am a hybrid paper and plastic bottle designed in California.
I am up to 70% less plastic than the traditional rigid plastic bottle of the same size.
I can be used for personal and household cleaning, baby care, auto, pet, and more.
I am reusable, refillable, water resistant, and customizable.
Eco-Bottle uses post-consumer reclaimed fiber to create the
Eco-bottle's outer shell. This helps provide the Eco-bottle with
structural stability and protection.
The Eco-bottle's thin inner liners
are made of PET, the #1 recycled plastic in the world. Having an inner
liner ensures that the product inside stays safe and sanitary.
The thinness of the inner liner allows us to use up to 70% plastic than
traditional rigid plastic containers, while still allowing for optimal
Our molded fiber shells and plastic liners are then locked together using
interlocking outer tabs to create a functional and sturdy container
ready to use!
No adhesives are used in this process because that can gum up the recycling process
The Eco-bottle is born!
Your Eco-bottle can be used for your personal and home needs!

HOW TO RECYCLE ME
Join my recycling process!
Help my components get to the right recycling stream by following the steps below:
1. Remove the neck tape at the neck of the bottle
2. Insert thumbs into the side seams of the bottle to separate the shells
3. Remove and rinse the liner
4.Recycle the components into respective streams (varies by state), or home/commercial compost shell.
Paper Jars and Tubes
We take care to consider sustainability in every step of sourcing, production,
packaging and shipment. The tubes are made with FSC certified paper, and the outer paper of all of our brown kraft paper tubes are 100% recycled. The adhesive used is rice glue, and the lining is soybean wax that is stable up to 140°F or 60°C. All of our tubes are fully home compostable. The containers are food grade and comply with EU regulations for cosmetic container safety standards. Finally, we ship using plastic free, recycled materials that are recyclable and compostable.
