Envision Plastics: FDA-approved food-grade recycled resin
EcoPrime from Envision Plastics is the only food-grade recycled HDPE plastic resin available in the US to be cleared by the FDA for use in packaging foods and beverages, according to the manufacturer.
Curbside collected HDPE (#2) bottles are subjected to a proprietary, patented cleaning process that cleans the plastic and removes anything that could have been absorbed by the plastic. Designed for packaging nutritional supplements, beverages, food storage containers and some personal care products, the resin is said to reduce CO2 / Greenhouse Gas emissions over prime resin by 67%.
