Sustainable Medical Packaging
Our FDA approved, curbside collected PET rollstock with up to 100% post-consumer content is an ideal material for non-sterile packaging applications. EcoStar® rollstock is produced at parent company, Placon’s recycling and extrusion facility in Madison, WI. Today, the facility is recycling over 1 billion plastic bottles and rigid thermoforms turning them into recycled PET rollstock for use in new thermoforming applications.
