ATP Offers Biodegradable Paint Trays, Sundries

American Trade Products (ATP), an industry leader in thermoformed plastic products, introduced Earth Plastic™, a 100-percent biodegradable, recycled plastic and proprietary blend material that breaks down in landfill and compost environments.The first consumer products made with Earth Plastic™ are a line of 100-percent biodegradable paint trays and sundries available at The Home Depot, select Wal-Mart stores, and Sherwin-Williams across the country.

Earth Plastic™ can be used to manufacture thousands of eco-conscious plastic products that have the identical look, durability, function and shelf-life of non-biodegradable plastic products and are competitively priced.

Dan Limerick, president of American Trade Products, said, "After years of focusing on innovative, eco-friendly products, we are excited to introduce Earth Plastic™, which we believe can transform the plastics industry. We are improving the environment with products that are not only totally biodegradable but are also made with millions of pounds of recycled plastic that could otherwise sit in landfills indefinitely."

Whether disposed of in landfills, compost heaps, or other locations, these products biodegrade within approximately two to five years, depending on conditions.

Earth Plastic™ additives have been tested and certified as biodegradable by independent laboratories using American Society of Testing Materials' (ASTM) standard methodologies. ASTM International is one of the world's largest and most reputable organizations for developing technical standards for materials, products, systems, and services.
