EcoSpatulas™: The ONLY Single-Use, Polypropylene Lab Spatulas that can biodegrade
Due to exposure to chemicals and biologicals, most lab plastics are not recycled and, therefore, end up in standard municipal landfills.

EcoSpatulas are produced with the EcoPure® proprietary additive, which initiates and promotes a biodegradation process only after prolonged exposure to microorganisms commonly found in biologically active landfills and similar environments. Spatulas produced using this additive were found to biodegrade an average of 29% in the first 586 days of testing under conditions that simulate a biologically active landfill.*

EcoSpatulas retain all the original properties and shelf life of our standard PP spatulas: they are autoclavable, resistant to dilute acids and bases, and FDA compliant for food contact.

Important California Notice
California law prohibits the sale of plastic packaging and plastic products that are labeled with the terms ‘biodegradable,’ ‘degradable,’ or ‘decomposable,’ or any form of those terms, or that imply in any way that the item will break down, biodegrade or decompose in a landfill or other environment. These restrictions apply to all sales in or into the State of California, including such sales over the Internet.

*Biodegradation rates of EcoSpatulas were measured according to the ASTM D5511 test method. Tests were conducted using 48% solids content. Solids content in naturally wetter landfills range from 55% to 65%, while the driest landfills may reach 93%. Actual biodegradation rates will vary in biologically active landfills according to the solids content, temperature, and moisture level of the landfill.
