Is your company a pioneer in terms of CSR?  Do you develop innovative, plastic-free materials? If so, we are more happy to cooperate with you. To apply for a laboratory test of your product, choose one of the classifications listed below.

Completely free from Plastics

This flustix seal certifies the complete product: packaging as well as content.
The Flustix mark can be considered a milestone in consumer protection and sustainability certification: for the first time in history, producers are tested by an independant institution and assure not to market any form of synthetics towards customers.

Flustix Recycled-Siegel

Items made from recycled plastics

Together with the established certification partner DIN CERTCO, flustix certifies the recyclability of packaging. Manufacturers of sustainable packaging can obtain the flustix RECYCLABLE mark in a fast and easy way. The basis of the verification is a laboratory analysis in which the recyclability of the materials used in the packaging is proven.

Flustix Recyclable Siegel

recyclable packaging

Flustix is now making a clear stand against the production of virgin plastics from fossil fuels and thereby promotes the use of recyclates in goods. The certification is awarded for goods of any kind, which are fully or partly made from recycled plastics. The percentage of recycled plastics is determined by an audit analyzing the manufacturing process and products, including packaging. Subsequently, the product is labeled with the mark by Flustix and “DIN CERTCO Gesellschaft für Konformitätsbewertung mbH”. Flustix is a reliable and economical solution to make the use of recycled plastic visible to consumers.

Free from microplastics

This Flustix trustmark certifies products, especially liquid product contents, that are microplastic-free. Flustix tests and certifies with its accredited partners on the basis of the only internationally respected and followed microplastic definition by ECHA (incl. ISO/TR 21960:2020 Plastics – Environmental aspects – State of knowledge and methodologies). This refers to solid, water-insoluble plastic particles with a size of less than 5 mm, based on the longest dimension or diameter of the plastic particles. For Flustix, this also includes so-called bioplastics obtained from renewable resources. In accordance with the ECHA definition, liquid and water-soluble plastics are not taken into account, as these can hardly be detected analytically in terms of quality or not at all in terms of quantity according to the current state of analytical technology and thus a legally secure claiming cannot yet be guaranteed. As soon as research has progressed, Flustix will also include these materials in its certification programmes.

Plastic-free packaging

Products of any kind that are sold in a plastic-free packaging can be marked with this certification mark. Only the packaging, not the content, is marked as free from plastics.
This also includes consumer goods, which naturally contain no plastics, or may not be included for legal reasons: Food, may use the term plastic-free, or plastic-free only for sales packaging.
Consumer goods which are naturally free of plastics or synthetics or are prohibited to contain such by law, such as food and beverages can only apply with the term “plastic-free” or “free of plastics” for their sales packaging or trays. Is your brand a first-mover in terms of sustainability? Do you already pass on plastic packaging and utilize alternative materials such as glass, wood or paper? Then you qualify for this seal.

Plastic-free product

This certificate applies for products which are plastic-free inside, but have to be packed in plastic due to sanitary reasons, such as medical appliances or similar. An example for plastic free contents if when plastic coatings in long-lasting items such as children’s toys, electronics or household goods are avoided. This is a great way of effectively reducing the synthetics in products and the number of manufacturers who pass on such coatings is consistingly growing.
If your brand manufactures products with such plastic reduction or similar, you product can be tested and apply for the seal.
