The other "transparency"
RPET allows Placon to tap into another
meaning of the word "transparency" -
namely, the ever-growing demand among
consumers to know how their products are

Ecostar-branded Ecostar sheet, an FDAapproved, food-grade material made from
post-consumer recycled products.
"Placon purchases curbside bales, sorts,
washes and grinds them and then extrudes
sheet that we use in our facility to make
our packaging," Lucash says. "We feel good
knowing that we are helping save our planet
by diverting PET bottles from landfills and
reusing them in our packaging."
