Ecolastic Products Pvt. Ltd. (“Ecolastic”), is a Hyderabad, based Bioplastic products manufacturing company, with a clear focus on replacing single-use plastic with compostable products.
Ecolastic manufactures & supplies eco-friendly compostable bioplastic films, garment bags, carry bags, garbage bags, etc., as an alternative to single-use plastic polyethylene/polypropylene bags.
On composting, these products will turn into Biomass, water, and CO2, without leaving any toxic residue. Most of Ecolastic’s products contain corn starch which accelerates biodegradation and hence increases the compostability of their products.
Their in-house R&D team has done extensive research and successfully developed these eco-friendly compostable products in collaboration with the Defence Research & Development Organization (“DRDO”), Govt. of India. Ecolastic’s products are certified by the Central Pollution Control Board of India as “Compostable Products” after rigorous testing by CIPET (Central Institute of Petrochemicals Engineering and Technology), to confirm the IS/ISO 17088 International standard.
• Ecolastic is the only company in India whose compostable products are recommended by NITI Aayog, Govt. of India, as an environment-friendly sustainable alternative to single-use plastic PE/PP products. • Ecolastic is also the first company to have received an import permit Certificate from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Republic of Maldives. • Also, Ecolastic is the only compostable product manufacturer in India that is an official ‘Sustainability Partner’ of G20, which is being conducted in India.
