PC50 Retail PET

With a minimum guaranteed post-consumer recycled content level of 50%, up to 100%, EcoStar PC50™ is a high clarity clear extruded rigid rollstock that’s a sustainable alternative to PVC or 100% virgin APET material. Our PC50 sheet is manufactured with curbside collected PET bottles and thermoforms that we reclaimed, recycled and extruded into high clarity rollstock for plastic clamshell, blister and tray applications.


PC50 rollstock not only helps you meet and exceed your own packaging sustainability initiatives, it can help you meet others as well. PC50 exceeds California’s current Rigid Plastic Packaging Container (RPPC) regulation that dictates a minimum of 35% post-consumer content in rigid packaging sold within or into the state. PC50 also meets the world’s largest retailer’s requests for higher amounts of post-consumer content to be utilized in plastic packaging sold in its stores.


EcoStar is committed to a zero waste to landfill ideal. PC50 sheet is 100% recyclable and contains up 15% post-consumer thermoform flake in its blends. That means that consumers buying your products are able to discard their packaging in their curbside collection bins for recycling and reuse time and time again. It’s a true closed loop process that reclaims reuses not only PET bottles but thermoformed packaging as well.


Over 1 billion discarded consumer PET soda bottles, water bottles and thermoformed containers carrying the #1 symbol go through our recycling facility each year. These containers are ground, washed then extruded into our EcoStar brand of PET sheet which is thermoformed back into packaging, helping conserve valuable natural resources. Watch our video for a tour of the EcoStar facility and recycling process.
