Biodegradable Plastic Pop Top Containers: Our plastic pop top vials are made with a custom bio-resin material that was tested to be up to 95% biodegradable and is just as sturdy as traditional plastic. We offer our fully biodegradable squeeze pop top containers in three different colors, opaque black, white, or clear in four different sizes.
Opaque Recyclable Pop Top Containers: Some states enforce regulations on full opacity for certain packaging products, which is why we offer full opaque pop top containers made out of 100% recyclable plastic. Our squeeze tops pharmacy vials are available in 11 different colors and six sizes ranging from 6 dram to 90 dram. Opaque packaging is highly regarded for being sunlight resistant and protecting your product’s freshness.

Are Pop Top Bottles Eco-Friendly?

Biodegradable Plastic: Biodegradable products are highly regarded for their design to lower the impact of plastic pollution on the environment. Biodegradable plastic containers consume less energy during manufacturing, reduce the consumption of petroleum, and reduce the emission of greenhouse gas levels.
Recyclable Plastic: Our recyclable containers are made out of polypropylene (PP) plastic which is symbolized as the number 5 inside the recycling logo. This material is inexpensive and can be recycled into new products such as food containers. PP is highly reusable and safe for reuse with food and cosmetic products (unlike some other plastics).
Even though these containers are biodegradable, they still need to be appropriately disposed of with local recycling processing centers.
