good natured™ Plant-Based Recyclers to be Carried at London Drugs Across Western Canada

Purchase orders confirmed for 4 "blue bin" recyclers made from over 90% plant-based materials and no Chemicals of Concern

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 20, 2017) - Solegear Bioplastic Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SGB) ("Solegear" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received a purchase order from London Drugs to carry its latest collection of good natured™ plant-based home organization products, including 4 popular home recycling "blue bins".

This latest collection is the result of ongoing collaboration between Solegear and its customers to identify top consumer trends and then design, source and manufacture better everyday products made from safer, earth-friendly materials. The new recycler collection is expected to arrive in London Drugs stores and online at www.londondrugs.com by early August 2017.

"We consider ourselves very fortunate to have strong collaborative relationships with our customers, like London Drugs, who push us to seek out the very latest plant-based materials and turn them into everyday household products that are better for the health of our planet and ourselves," said Paul Antoniadis, CEO of Solegear. "We remain committed to our objective to deliver better everyday products at everyday prices. Our good natured™ recyclers are competitively priced and will be available in classic Sapphire Blue and an exciting new Emerald Green."

These latest good natured™ products are manufactured in Canada using Braskem's I'm green™ plant-based polyethylene material - a renewable and sustainable biopolymer designed to be a drop-in replacement to conventional fossil fuel sourced polyethylene.

good natured™ products target the growing multi-billion dollar home and business organization market primarily dominated by traditional, fossil fuel-based plastics that often contain "Chemicals of Concern" identified as potentially harmful to human health and the environment, such as BPAs, phthalates and styrene.
