March 8th is National Biobased Day.
National Biobased Products Day is an annual date designed to raise awareness of biobased products—how they're made, what they're made from, their many benefits, and the wide variety of products available for use at home, in the office, on the playground, at construction sites and even in landscaping.
This is not a USDA specific program or event. Instead, National Biobased Products Day is a collective effort and opportunity for all of us within the bioeconomy to bring attention to the great work being done to improve sustainability, grow U.S. manufacturing, jobs and the bioeconomy, and benefit rural communities.
Eco Lips Plant Pod® is the first plant-based, plastic-free lip balm tube that fully functions like a regular tube. Plant Pod® celebrates the power of plants and our ability to choose simple, everyday products that are better for our health and the health of the environment.
Plant Pod® aligns with Eco Lips’ continued push for sustainable solutions – and we didn’t stop there. Our labels are also plastic-free. With the absence of plastic and fossil fuel-based ingredients, we are effectively reducing our carbon footprint and decreasing the production and disposal of plastic. The decision not only aligns with our values as a company but satisfies the ever-growing demand for environmentally conscious products.
Environmentally friendly and sustainable, our new plant-based tubes are crafted of material re-claimed from farm byproducts which otherwise would have been burned. The tubes look, feel and function just like a traditional plastic lip balm tube. They contain zero plastic elements, heavy metals, or polymers, including BPA and phthalates.
