Consolidated Ecoprogress Technologies Inc.: Flushaway Sales up 84 Percent at Wal Mart

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 17, 2005) - Consolidated Ecoprogress Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CES) -

Mr. John Banks reports:

Consolidated Ecoprogress Technologies Inc. is pleased to announce that its US distributor Dr. Fresh reports an 84% increase in sales of Flushaway brand feminine hygiene products through Wal Mart in the United States as compared to last year.

Flushaway is the world's first and only line of flushable, biodegradable feminine hygiene products. Dr. Fresh serves a number of major US retailers including Wal Mart.

"We see this as an indication of growing consumer adoption of Flushaway through US Wal Mart stores. We believe that the new generation of Flushaways, priced at parity with ordinary feminine hygiene products and on the shelves since July, has made an impact on sales. We expect to see continued sales growth through Wal Mart and through our expanding sales and distribution network worldwide in coming months," said Ecoprogress' president John Banks.

Flushaways are currently available in 1,700 Wal Mart stores throughout the Unites States and in South Africa in Clix and Pick 'n Pay stores. They are also on their way to the United States Marine Corps worldwide.

Ecoprogress is diligently working on becoming a lead player in environmentally friendly, absorbent and plastic replacement products. Its first branded product, Flushaway, provides women with the choice of a flushable feminine hygiene product that, after disposal, biodegrades in 28 days.
