Nice-Pak's Eco-Pak receives WOW Innovation Award

Jun '10
Eco-Pak, a new wet wipes delivery system from Nice-Pak, received the prestigious WOW Innovation Award presented as part of the fourth annual World of Wipes (WOW) Conference, June 21-23 at the InterContinental Hotel in Chicago, Illinois.

The WOW Conference, organized by INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, is devoted solely to wipes, with a concentration on substrates, active ingredients, packaging, market metrics, industry challenges and market opportunities. The WOW Innovation Award recognizes and rewards the industry members who bring new and value-added processes and products to the wipes market.

Following presentations by the four finalists, attendees at the WOW Conference voted the Eco-Pak system as the recipient of the 2010 Award.

Eco-Pak is a portable, soft pack delivery system that holds high-efficacy surface disinfecting wet wipes, which could previously only be packed in canisters. This resealable new package has soft sides, and yet is able to stand on one end, maximizing store shelf impact and minimizing storage space under a kitchen sink. This new package provides a more compact footprint than traditional canisters for more efficient storage and transportation, as well as a more comfortable fit in the consumer's hand.

“At Nice-Pak, for more than 50 years, we have been passionate about creating game-changing products that meet real consumer needs. The Eco-Pak provides the consumer with a significantly improved use experience and reflects our focus on sustainability,” says Robert Julius, chairman and CEO of Nice-Pak Products. “Thanks to INDA for supporting innovation and sustainability in the wipes category.”

The three other finalists, chosen from products nominated by the industry earlier this year, are:

Kimberly-Clark ... Kimtech One-Step Germicidal Wipe
Kimtech One-Step Germicidal Wipe is a pre-saturated hospital-grade surface disinfecting wipe with a Clostridium difficile spore kill claim. The wipe is powered by a unique chemistry that combines hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid and rapidly kills C. difficile spores and numerous other bacteria, viruses and fungi on surfaces.

RPM Technology ... PolyWipes
The PolyWipes are an odorless aqueous nonwoven wipe designed to remove uncured silicone, polysulfide, urethane, epoxy, and virtually any uncured system.

Seventh Generation ... Seventh Generation Disinfecting Wipes
In January 2010 Seventh Generation introduced EPA registered disinfecting wipes that kill germs naturally using the active ingredient thymol as a component of thyme oil derived from the thyme plant. This product has combined thymol disinfecting technology, green formulation chemistry, and a total chlorine-free processed substrate..
