PRESS RELEASE – Ecoterah Packaging from Precision Color Graphics
Ecoterah Packaging Gets BPI Certification
FRANKLIN, Wisconsin March 19, 2012 – Precision Color Graphics Ltd. (PCG), a Milwaukee-area packaging company, earned Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) certification for its Ecoterah (patent pending) multi-layer pouches and bags. The certification assures that the Ecoterah packaging products meet ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) D6868 and D6400 standards. PCG’s Ecoterah products are the first multi-layer retail packaging to earn this certification in all of the U.S., Canada, Europe and Japan.
- Because they do not contain petrochemicals, they are safe for recycling, composting and landfills.
- Materials for the inner film are grown, processed and produced domestically; therefore offering more control over the supply chain.
PCG President John Goeden says, “PCG’s Ecoterah multi-layer pouches have been used for pet food and treats for about one and a half years; pouches holding nuts, granola, coffee, powdered drinks, and hops are in trials now. Next in line for certification are an Ecoterah pouch with a window and a stand-up pouch with a zipper closure – all fully compostable.”
