EarthDrive Technology

What sets the EarthDrive apart from all other USB Flash drives is the fact that it is the world’s first recyclable drive.

With years of product development and extensive research, the EarthDrive’s housing is designed and built using the maximum amount of biodegradable materials (PLA), resulting in a fully recyclable product. PLA (Polylactic acid) is a biodegradable polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn.

The EarthDrive™ is not only the most environmentally friendly storage device on the market today, but a dependable storage product as well. Manufactured with ATP’s SIP technology, and using only the best components in the industry, allowing for waterproof, shock proof and dust proof. The EarthDrive’s has built in security software allows for password protection of private data, and comes in sizes ranging from 1GB to 8GB. The EarthDrive’s housing and packaging is made of recycled paper and recyclable materials. 

The technology behind the EarthDrive really quite interesting, and ATP should be commended for their approach and commitment here.  I’m no biochemist, so I’ll let the information speak for itself here:

  • Designed with Recycled Material
    The EarthDrive’s unique housing was designed to be recyclable.

  • American Forests Partnership
    In partnership with the American Forests, a portion of all EarthDrive™ product sales will go towards the planting of trees.

  • Waterproof for all Conditions
    In addition to being one of the most durable USB drives in the world, the EarthDrive™ is also one of the most versatile. Built with ATP’s SIP technology, all vital flash components are completely encapsulated allowing for shock proof, waterproof, and dust proof durability.

  • Security Protection
    The EarthDrive’s built in security software allows for password protection of private data.
