EcoStar is one of the few companies in North America that reclaims post-consumer thermoforms destined for landfills, processes them into flake then extrudes them into recycled PET rollstock. Because a high percentage of post-consumer PET is used in our sheet, by using EcoStar recycled PET for your thermoformed packaging, you’re helping to preserve petroleum-based resources while reducing your total carbon footprint.
EcoStar recycled PET rollstock for thermoformed packaging not only has some of the highest clarity in the industry, comparable to virgin APET rollstock, it also has some of the highest post-consumer content, up to 100%, withup to 15% inclusion of plastic PET thermoforms.
At EcoStar we’re committed to the belief that the recycling of existing plastic PET is the most responsible solution for the preservation of resources and reduction of PET containers as landfill waste. Our vertically integrated reclamation, recycling and extrusion facility is completely closed-loop. This closed loop recycling system allows for the continual reuse of PET bottle and thermoformed packaging creating an efficient process where scare resources are protected without degradation of PET properties.
