Q. How durable are the Eco Tubes?
A. Some consumers report up to a year of daily use in purse or pocket. Putting an Eco Tube into a pants pocket with keys, then sitting can crush or dent the package. Eco Tubes will withstand some water, but keep in mind it’s a biodegradable package.
Q. What kind of testing have you done for the Eco Tubes?
A. We have home composted empty Eco Tubes and they have fully composted within 14 days. Composting conditions will affect the necessary time. Eco Tubes have been tested to withstand hot oil filling up to 150 degrees F, or 66 degrees C.
Q. How long will it take for the Eco Tube to break down completely in fertile soil?
A. In a healthy compost garden, about 2 weeks depending on the weather.
Q. Are the eco tubes sterile?
A. The tubes are produced in the cleanest conditions possible for handmade production, though we don’t use chemical poisons or irradiation to make the package sterile. Since the package is intended for non-water containing products, the lack of water prevents the growth of harmful bacteria and other microorganisms. Be aware that the package is intended to be compostable and extremely sustainable. Therefore, when the package is exposed to conditions more than a short while that support bacteria and other microorganisms, such as plenty of water and warmth, they will begin eating the package. Remember, all members of the life cycle present food opportunities to others. Nevertheless, when used as intended, the Eco Tube does not pose health hazards.
Q. Does the cap get loose after continued use?
No. It stays tight with normal usage.
Q. You say the Eco Tubes are “moisture resistant”. What do you mean by this?
A. When a user handles the package briefly with wet hands, little or no damage will occur if the package is allowed to dry; if the package left out in the rain or in a puddle of water, it will begin to decompose.
Q. What is the turnaround time from order to shipping?
A. From the time that your graphic file is sent to our commercial printer to the finished goods leaving Crescent City, CA it generally takes 5 weeks. However, delays can occur with graphic changes, color changes, holidays or production schedules.
Q. What kind of adhesives do you use on a rolled Eco Tube and cap?
A. We make our own casein based adhesive/glaze to keep the compostability paramount.
Q. I am vegan, and casein is not vegan. Have you tried to make your packaging home-compostable and vegan?
A. We have been searching long and hard for a vegan adhesive that doesn’t contain plastic or toxins that is also fully home-compostable. We have even created and tested our own vegan adhesives. Unfortunately, none of the vegan adhesives we created worked well enough to be used in our packaging. Believe it or not, many of the vegan products that many vegans purchase are packaged in bottles or jars on which the labels are affixed with casein-based glues. As our products can be put directly into the ground or a compost bin after use, we do not want to create a product that will add toxic elements to our soils. If you know of any vegan adhesives that do not contain plastics or toxins that are also fully home-compostable, please contact
Q: What are all of the materials in the Eco Tubes?
A. Paper, < 4% casein adhesive and glaze, < 1% palm oil, ink.
Q. What kind of paper do you use to make the Eco Tubes?
A. 100% PCW paper (FSC certified). 100% Post Consumer Waste (PCW) is waste paper that has served its intended purpose and has been separated from solid waste to be recycled into new paper. This is what currently goes to the recycling center. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) was created to change the dialogue about and the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide. This impressive goal has in many ways been achieved, yet there is more work to be done. FSC sets forth principles, criteria, and standards that span economic, social, and environmental concerns. The FSC standards represent the world's strongest system for guiding forest management toward sustainable outcomes. Like the forestry profession itself, the FSC system includes stakeholders with a diverse array of perspectives on what represents a well-managed and sustainable forest. While the discussion continues, the FSC standards for forest management have now been applied in over 57 countries around the world.
Q. Will we be working with one of your Graphic Artists for our designs?
A. Preliminary questions can be asked of Eco Vision Prepress. The look and feel of your brand will need to be designed by your own graphic designer. For the most part, there are no extra charges necessary. However, extensive help will incur charges, which are explained in the introductory email, when you receive the template. A good working knowledge of Adobe Illustrator is advisable.
Q. Why are your Eco Tubes so expensive?
A. Low production volume. When fully automated high volume equipment comes online, the price will decrease.

Products I like and wanted your thoughts on for the future!
I love this wood design for colour cosmetics - custom design
I can see doing 3 compacts:
I like these brushes - custom large run
I like these slider tins
Very cool slider tins for colour cosmetics and it has a custom tooled insert for the colour
this reminds me of the old Mary Quant crayons for makeup
Nice brush - custom large minimums
These paper compacts are hand made by an Etsy designer 'Another Soul'
She does amazing work with these palettes in any size with custom papers. I like the handmade yet top notch execution. I could see colour cosmetics in custom palettes. Would need to find someone to make these magnetic compacts
