Delicious Inc. dba Masterpiece Cookies, has incorporated into its packaging Eco-One biodegradable plastic additives.
Masterpiece chose the additive to enhance biodegradation of polyethylene containers molded by Letica Corp. in Letica's Jean, Nev., plant. The additives are supplied by EcoLogic LLC of Oakbrook Terrace, Ill.
“Eco-One provided a flawless solution to deliver a real world environmental benefit with performance and function that parallels traditional plastic resins, without altering the fit and function of the containers or how our customer would be using it,” explains Letica Corp. director of marketing and sustainability Dan Tafaro, in a news release.
Masterpiece Cookies makes Masterpiece Fundraising products distributed through schools, groups, churches and sports teams . The new containers with Eco-One will be available for the spring fundraising season. Masterpiece Cookies' manufacturing operation is in Livermore, Calif.
EcoLogic, formed in 2010, says Eco-One is an organic additive that tests have shown will biodegrade by 5 percent to 15 percent within 30 days in biologically active landfills.
