GreenSpense’s Eco-Sleeve enables gas-free continuous dispensing that eliminates the need for pressurized canisters and maintains the desired convenient user experience.
The Eco-Sleeve generates high pressure (that is directed to the center of the package only) and enables innovative packaging designs with low-cost, recyclable materials such as plastic or cardboard. Easy to implement in production lines, the patent-pending technology works with dual-compartment dispensers, exerting consistent pressure throughout the entire dispensing process.

Aerosols and continuous dispensers are widely used to dispense sprays, foams, or gels. More than 15 billion aerosols are produced worldwide (FEA European Aerosol Federation Annual Report 2014) and dispense products from personal care, household and technical items to food and pharmaceuticals.
Aerosols provide an efficient and convenient user experience. But, safety risks; packaging limitations; added production, storage, and transportation costs; and pressure from green organizations and government regulations — all due to the use of pressurized gas — are driving consumer product manufacturers and brand companies to search for environmentally friendly, safer, and more cost-effective dispensing solutions.
