I live overseas. Is shipping of samples and products costly to my country?
Currently all Eco Vision samples are shipped from our dock located in Crescent City, California, USA. International shipment of samples can be relatively costly per unit. The least expensive way for you to receive samples is via the United States Postal Service (USPS). Unfortunately, the USPS does not provide tracking codes to track package delivery to other countries, so once the package is sent there is no way to track it. If you choose to have samples shipped via USPS, Eco Vision cannot be responsible if your samples are not received. A very reliable, but more expensive way to deliver samples is via Fed Ex. Please note, as with the international shipment of all things, larger volumes such as pallet loads cost much less per unit
Where can I buy compostable labels for the Eco Jars? Do you sell them?

The second one is Australian
. You will need to perform due diligence and find out if these companies would serve your labeling needs.
Are your Eco Jars vegan?
The Eco Jars themselves are vegan. If you order paper labels from us to affix, they will have a casein coating. However, you can order from another supplier and affix your own labels and therefore, your Eco Jars would be vegan. Downside with self-adhesive labels: Almost all labels currently produced have a plastic coating with a petro-chemical adhesive; not conducive to urban composting. Upside to our paper labels: The paper labels that we affix (with casein coating) are urban compostable.
Will we be working with one of your Graphic Artists for our designs?
Preliminary questions can be asked of Eco Vision Prepress. The look and feel of your brand will need to be designed by your own graphic designer. For the most part, no extra charges are incurred. However, extensive help will incur charges, which are explained in the introductory email, when you receive the template. A good working knowledge of Adobe Illustrator is advisable.
Can the jars hold bath salts?
Yes. The Eco Jar performs excellently with dry salts. The package filled with salts and light oils perform well structurally, but label and package discoloration may occur.
Will your jars hold dry products like mud products?
Yes, however, you might be able to find a cheaper solution with a single barrel jar to contain your dry products. With other companies, the minimum order requirement could be significantly higher than our one unit minimum, so you may choose to use our double-barreled Eco Jar for your dry
products in lower quantities.
How long will it take for the Eco Jar to compost?
In a healthy compost garden, about 2 months depending on the weather. This is due to the bulk and mass of the package. If the package is broken down into small pieces, it will decompose much more quickly.
Are the jars airtight?
The tab disk is properly fitted into the jar, the contents are reasonably well protected from atmospheric moisture and oxygen; however this package is not recommended for extremely unstable products.
Will your packing work for food products?
Currently, we haven’t certified to GMP for the food industry needs. In the near future, we will have packaging available and will be compliant with food quality production procedures.
What kind of ink do you use to print on the Eco Jars?
Eco Jars are unprinted, plain brown. Labeled Eco Jars can be produced with your custom artwork. These labels are made with 100% Post Consumer Waste Paper and are printed with water based ink and affixed and glazed with compostable casein, which gives the package acceptable moisture resistance.
Can you sell me your labels? Would you be able to print my information on the labels you use? How much would this cost?
As with our Organic Essence labeled jars, we offer customers the option of us providing a pre-labeled jar to the same specifications. They are: 100% PCW paper, or other grade of paper if desired, printed with water based ink for <50 thousand piece orders, sunflower ink 50 thousand+. We use our casein adhesive to affix and lightly glaze the label. As with all printing, small runs are much more expensive than long runs per piece. We can quote jar labeling; it will be very expensive for less than 2,000 jars.
Why are your Eco Jars so expensive?
Low production volume. When fully automated high volume equipment comes online, the price will fall, but also, the large brands will have them too. The special marketing advantage you have now over the big brands, with the high Eco Jars price should not be underestimated.
What is your return policy?
Unused undecorated jars can be returned. However, jars with affixed labels or have been modified, changed or used, can’t be returned.
