ecoSolutions Intl, formerly 360 Interchange, was founded in early 2004 by Bill Patridge, who resides as the President of the company. Our unique approach revolves around services unequaled in any industry with a focus on finding "next step" eco-friendly alternatives to some of the most harmful materials and products in use today. Our goal is to create an environment of profitability, fostering innovation and quality at the manufacturing level while maintaining a commitment to our customer's ability to promote and sell products made from our materials.
ecoSolutions Intl identifies and builds strong relationships with large, capable manufacturers known for their high quality standards and confirmed through independent inspections, extensive travel, meetings, factory tours, evaluation of product samples, attendance at trade shows, and various other forms of research and communication. Prior to approval as an ecoSolutions manufacturer, each such producer must complete a detailed background and capabilities questionnaire.
What is ecoPlastic™?
ecoPlastic™ is a family of recyclable, eco-friendly materials that do not utilize heavy metals in production, contain no chloride, PVC, or plasticizers (phthalates) and do not outgas toxic fumes.
ecoPlasticª can replace PVC, EVA and synthetic rubbers for many applications.
What makes ecoPlastic™ a better material?
The most important advantage of ecoPlastic™ is reducing the ecological impact of manufacturing products without a significant increase in the cost of production. Products made with ecoPlastic™ require less energy and resources to produce than other materials, such as PVC.
ecoPlastic™ exceeds performance expectations by combining the advantages of both general plastics and rubber based foams. At room temperature ecoPlasticª retains the high recovery and compression set, high resiliency and anti-slip properties of rubber, and combines with it features of general plastic such as flexible shaping and molding possibilities and continuous foaming. These combined attributes create a versatile material with reduced production overhead that easily recycled and photo-degradable.
Eco-Friendly Fitness Products
Made from ecoFoam™ , this mat is PVC, chlorine, latex and phthalate free, and does not require toxic materials or heavy metals in production. ecoFoam™ is 100% recyclable, allowing for both the production waste and finished products to be reused for new generations of products. Additionally, ecoFoam™ is photo-degradable allowing the material to break down into degradable components with assistance from continuous exposure to sunlight.
Gaia® Foam Mats
Gaia® foam was created to address the growing concern for the environment. It is designed especially for replacement of PVC and EVA mats in many fields of application. It does not use CFCs/HCFCs or ozone depleting materials. This Halogen, PVC and Phthalate ester free compound meets RoHS regulations.
PER and Jute Mats
These yoga mats utilize polymer environmental resin (PER), a material that does not contain phthalates or heavy metals and is much more gentle on the environment and your health than traditional PVC yoga mats.
Sustainable Wood Flooring
Sustainable Bamboo Flooring
Bamboo, a rapidly renewable natural resource is a fast-growing grass that is used to create hundreds of products ranging from building to ornamental. Not all bamboo floors are created equal and most would not fit into a sustainable, eco-friendly, healthy lifestyle. Bamboo is created by pressing slices of treated bamboo together with adhesive to hold it together, those treatments and adhesives are often toxic and utilize formaldahyde. It is important to look for Low-VOC bamboo, or sustainable bamboo flooring brands, such as those from 360 Interchange.
Sustainable Solid & Engineered Flooring
As with bamboo, not all flooring products are created equal and only recently has there been an industry focus on creating sustainable solid and engineered wood flooring. 360 Interchange works with manufacturers who certify their practices from foresting or purchasing lumber through the production process all the way to distribution. This approach ensures that the flooring you put in your home has been harvested and produced in a way that will minimize the impact on the planet.
Steel is the most widely recycled material in North America and nearly 70% of all steel produced annually is recycled material. The recycling process requires much less energy and resources than 'new' steel, saving tons of iron ore, coal and limestone.
One of the two methods of recycling steel allows for a 1:1 ratio of steel in to recycled steel output, making it perfectly efficient in generating usable material from old steel.
Because of the growing demand for steel, it is imperative to streamline access to steel scrap and other steel material suitable for recycling. 360 Interchange is working to make sure that steel for recycling is finding its way into the steel production process, because more steel recycled, the less 'new' steel will be created from iron ore, lessening our impact on the planet.
