Ecoslide-OTC™ Paperboard Pack: Keystone Folding Box Co.

Keystone Folding Box Co., a designer and manufacturer of paperboard packaging solutions, has responded to calls for reduced plastics in packaging. The company’s Ecoslide-OTC™, a paperboard pack for over-the-counter medication eliminates the need for larger plastic peel/push blister packs. Ecoslide-OTC allows manufacturers to eliminate up to 50 percent of plastics used in conventional blister packs.

Ecoslide-OTC features a push-button safety mechanism that provides child-resistance while eliminating the need for two-step “peel/push-through foil.” Made from 100 percent recyclable and compostable paperboard, Ecoslide-OTC is easily separated from its smaller internal blister for recycling.  The enclosed blister contains only a fraction of disposable plastic compared to peel/push blisters or plastic bottles.

In developing Ecoslide-OTC, Keystone Folding Box Co. worked closely with OEM automation providers and contract packagers who are reporting growing requests from major retail chains for new and innovative approaches to packaging.

“With both new legislation and major retailers targeting the reduction of plastic, our new Ecoslide-OTC meets the goal for medications packaged with the least amount of plastic,” said Ward Smith, director of marketing and business development at Keystone Folding Box Co.  “Our cost-effective solution meets all requirements for child-resistance and senior-friendliness while being significantly more sustainable.”
