Eco-Products Included on Inc. 500 2010 List for Third Consecutive Year

Accelerated growth propels change-minded company toward further success

BOULDER, Colo., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Eco-Products, the nation's leading brand of food service ware made from renewable resources and recycled content, made the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing companies in the U.S. for the third year in a row. Eco-Products has seen an unprecedented growth of 1,012 percent since 2007, landing the company at No. 279 on the list.



Eco-Products got its start in 1990, selling household products made from recycled materials. Sales significantly accelerated in 2007 when it began selling its own line of single-use food service products at a time when many businesses began looking for green solutions in earnest.  

"As we celebrate our 20th anniversary this fall, we would like to thank all of our customers and partners who have helped us in our efforts to drive change in a largely broken and environmentally irresponsible industry," said Luke Vernon, chief operating officer of Eco-Products.

"Our presence on the Inc. 500 list these last three years is one of many indicators that the demand for sustainable solutions to traditional products of all kinds is steadily growing," Vernon continued. "We're especially heartened by this year's growth in the face of big-company imitators coming into our space with products that are drafting off of the sustainable category development work we've been putting in for the last 20 years."

Eco-Products offers a full line of sustainable food service ware, including cold cups, hot cups, plates, bowls, cutlery and to-go containers. In 2009 Eco-Products expanded its line and added single-use products made from recycled content to its existing line of items made from renewable resources. The company's iconic line of Green Stripe™ cold cups and World Art™ hot cups have become widely recognizable symbols of sustainability and change to consumers and food service businesses alike.
