Eco Chemical™ has harbored a deep concern for our environmental impact since opening our doors as a coatings manufacturer in 1991. Environmental stewardship is an integral part of our day-to-day business – it’s in our name, after all! For the TempLine™ team, eco-centricity isn’t just a selling point. It’s a way of life.
One of our earliest environmental initiatives was the ultra-concentrated, boxed Natural Grass Turf Marking Paint. The paint is water-based, non-toxic, and packaged in 100% recyclable cardboard boxes. This eliminates the solid waste associated with plastic buckets and aerosol cans used to ship and apply other grass paint products.
The recyclability of Eco TempLine’s packaging is just a small part of the whole environmental picture. Since the paint comes in a highly-concentrated form, the freight costs – and related carbon emissions – are substantially less than if it was shipped conventionally.
“We’ll ship 96 boxes of our paint on a single pallet, and those boxes will produce 960 gallons of paint,” explains Eco Chemical’s president, Mark Cheirrett. “The 96 boxes weigh approximately the same as a pallet of 48 five-gallon buckets of paint, and will produce four times that quantity of paint.” Plus, the end user appreciates both a lighter package weight and smaller storage requirement.
Because of this product, both the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable and the Washington State Department of Ecology have recognized Eco TempLine as industry eco-leaders.
