DPS Skis was shrink wrapping its specialty skis in polyethylene (PE) film but wanted a more sustainable packaging alternative. The company is known for prioritizing sustainable business practices wherever possible and reached out to Cortec® in 2020 for a sample of EcoShrink™ commercially compostable film.* After thoroughly testing EcoShrink™ in their heat shrink tunnel, they decided to place an order and received the new packaging shortly thereafter in time to promote it at their annual Dreamtime summer event.
