Eco-Friendly Shaker Top Packaging for Food Grade, Crawling Insect Killer

December 18th, 2013

SCRAM Crawling Insect KillerSCRAM Crawling Insect Killer was developed by a commercial property owner who wanted a non-toxic insect pest-control method, rather than using the highly toxic products currently on the market that pose health risks to tenants and their pets. SCRAM is an all-natural powder, containing fossilized silica from the remains of tiny marine creatures, that is food grade and safe for people and pets. It kills bugs and deodorizes at the same time, without the harmful residue poisonous chemicals can create or leave behind.

Gartland Properties, creators of SCRAM, came to Custom Paper Tubes for cost-effective and eco-friendly shaker top packaging for the all-natural powder. Two container sizes were developed; a sample size and a full size. Both container sizes have a friction fit talc shaker top and food grade foil inside as a moisture barrier for the powder.

Recyclable Shaker Top Containers Allow for Easy Application of All-Natural Dry Pet Shampoo

November 25th, 2013

Holcombe OrganicsHolcombe Organics created FurRefresh out of necessity in an animal rescue environment. The condition of which the animals were arriving was a growing concern, and most were too traumatized to bathe without risking personal harm. Also, a good, chemical-free dry shampoo was nearly impossible to find in retail stores. This lead Holcombe Organics to develop FurRefresh — a dry shampoo made with culinary ingredients that could be licked by the animals without harm. It also cleans, conditions and brightens fur, calms itchy skin and repels insects.

Holcombe Organics came to Custom Paper Tubes to produce cost-effective and eco-friendly shaker top containers that would allow for easy application of the all-natural, dry pet shampoo. Read the rest of this entry »
